Solving the OT Data Connectivity Challenge

Presentation Overview

Is Digital Transformation a buzz word you are constantly hearing at work or across the industry?

Has your leadership or IT department chosen your Cloud provider?

Are you trying to extract value and solve problems, but are struggling to access all available operational data?

Do you think the only data you can access from your operations comes from your Process Data Historians?

Extracting data from Operational systems has had a challenging past. Process Data Historians have helped us store and mobilize time-series data from control systems, but what about all the other data created in operational systems that exist at your facilities? As the industry drives to solve operational constraints leveraging analytics, the "quest" to use the right data to solve these challenges has turned out to be a challenge unto itself. This session will focus on today's challenge of Operational Technology (OT) data connectivity, why it is such an issue and how new developments are making this easier to leverage as part of your Digital Transformation initiatives.
