IT and OT Convergence: Upcoming Challenges for the Industry

Lets Cluster Summit Graz · (25 minutes) - 2019

Information Technology and Operational Technology were operated in two different silos, using independent networks following different objectives and being operated by different people. Teams working on IT and OT collaborated occasionally for selected projects, but in general cooperation between IT and OT was not seen as an opportunity. This is changing now: The industry strives for increased productivity, extended component lifetime and optimized maintenance cycles.

These capabilities can only be provided by bridging the gap between IT/OT and is seen as a key success factor for the industry. This talk provides insights in opportunities as well as challenges emerging from the convergence of two very different worlds. Specifically when it comes to cyber security these two worlds have diverse objectives which need to be respected.
