The most important topics of digitization include currently the integration and connection of the various divisions, above all between IT (Information Technologies) and OT (Operational Technologies). In a study published in 2018, Gartner predicted “major challenges”; many companies that want to digitize their production systems are facing these.
For efficient management, internal barriers in information processing for IT and OT must be reduced. A holistic architectural approach is needed, that addresses all aspects of the different departments in the best possible way.
Cooperation between IKARUS, FireEye and NOZOMI Networks
