Why wireless technologies can provide a new perspective for the Industrial IoT
The IT and OT Convergence
Industries started learning to approach technologies more holistically. The promise of smart factories, mines, and hospitals is sharing data and intelligence from diverse areas. The real magic of machine learning is to see correlations across vast amounts of data, which would otherwise escape the notice of human analysts. To-date Operations Technology (OT) staff often considered technology as an enabler of isolated point solutions. Now they need to partner more closely with Information Technology (IT), which tends to have a holistic, platform approach to technology. The convergence between OT and IT is critical for fully realizing the benefits of IIoT and supporting wireless technologies and edge computing.
