An enterprise, or corporate network, is the communications backbone of a business that connects computers and devices across departments, facilitating data accessibility. Then, it should be a good idea to use it to connect everything in your plant, right?

 

Hold up... because what you really need is an Industrial Network. An infrastructure able to securely handle communications and data on a large scale, catering to real-time needs, with special security requirements and able to work in rough environments.

Industrial IT has special requirements to connect Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and OT that are found across a large range of asset-intensive sectors performing diverse tasks, ranging from monitoring critical infrastructure (CI) to controlling robots and automation on the plant floor.

Industrial IT, the Core of IIoT

Industrial Networks & IT are the central enablers of IIoT, Data Sharing, Industrial Cyber Security, Automation, and the creation of Digital Twins. Hence, they are core to Digital Transformation and Smart Manufacturing. Big buzzwords.

To achieve exponential efficiencies, it is not enough to digitally transform your operations by simply controlling machinery through OT. Today is key to connect machinery and OT to Enterprise and IT systems (OT/IT Convergence), and to thousands of Apps that help manufacturers to access advanced analytics and boost production processes.

Without Industrial-grade Networks that safely connect everything together on the factory floor and to the Internet, that just wouldn't be possible.

IT | OT Convergence

It is quite common in industrial settings to find IT departments and systems totally disconnected from their OT counterparts. Here is why it is important to have them working together, and what we do about it...

IT OT Convergence with Polestar IIoT, ISA 95, Purdue Architecture, Industrial IT, Industrial Networks

To succeed in a digital transformation project, it is critical to have a well-designed and seamless integration of the company's business (IT) and operational (OT) data. For processes to be analysed in-depth and optimised, sensors and machinery need to be integrated into the management of industrial environments (such as those for water treatment, electric power and factories).

 

When paired with Edge Computing, Industrial IT enables OT towards an IIoT model. As OT devices are not traditionally networked technology, they need this convergence to acquire the capability to collect, transfer and analyse data. Traditional OT devices, sensors, for example, can collect data, but themselves cannot transmit the data over a large network or perform any sort of in-depth analysis on that data.

This is what is called IT/OT integration, or IT/OT convergence, and it takes in so much more than a simple checklist of technology must-haves.

Successful IT/OT integrations require trained managers to lead a comprehensive organisational change that more than often includes a skills transfer programme, insightful data governance, and a combination of secure communication infrastructures with, of course, state-of-the-art technologies.

This comprehensive planning of your business Leadership, Skills, Data and Technology is what we call the LSD+T approach, and is key to properly integrate IT & OT systems, or implement any digital technology.

L

Through the years we have witnessed how leadership based on collaborative work with directors, managers, engineers, and operators from key departments increases the efficiencies when implementing IIoT and digital projects.

S

We also believe that convergence means helping our customers ‘learn lessons’ and share knowledge across the different business units. This is the sole reason why is necessary to create skills transferring plans.

D

Additionally, we highly suggest defining all the data management structures and secure data architectures to improve the resilience of your systems and your business assets, including critical information.

+T

Finally, you need to make an informed decision when choosing adequate tech tools that are Cyber Secure, and allow tailoring, scalability and agile implementations.

We got you covered from End-to-end. To receive guidance on an IT/OT Convergence project you might have, just contact us, or access our IIoT Consulting programmes page.
