The connected economy is shifting the industrial landscape as industrial companies scramble to connect their assets to the cloud. Executing an Industrial IoT (IIoT) transformation, however, remains highly complex and challenging. Indeed, according to Microsoft’s 2019 IoT Signals report, around 30% of IIoT projects fail at the proof-of-concept stage.
One factor that contributes to IIoT failure is the lack of interoperability between Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT). Given their disparate functions, these two worlds have historically existed in siloes: OT is about the monitoring, control of industrial assets and acquisition of sensor data, while the IT function is steeped in enterprise systems and cloud applications. With each world using an entirely different set of technologies and tools, it has become critical to bridge the gap between them to ensure a successful IIoT transformation.
Join this webinar to learn about recent innovations that show great promise in resolving this challenge. For the first time, industrial companies can now focus on what matters most – their data – instead of spending time and resources on integrating their IT and OT infrastructure.
Who Should Attend
This webinar is principally designed to benefit product managers and industrial companies (particularly OEMs), although IT staff at such companies and those interested in IoT-enabled data orchestration and cloud platforms will find value as well.
Everyone who registers for this webinar will receive a special report by Senior Principal Analyst Sam Lucero. A download link will be sent to you and the report will also be available to download from the live webinar console.
Key Topics for Discussion
Join this webinar to:
Find out how all-in-one, edge-to-cloud IIoT solutions have made it significantly easier to connect industrial assets to the cloud and bring powerful compute, analytics and application execution capabilities to OT systems
Learn how industrial companies can build and scale their IIoT applications at a fraction of the cost and time
Discover how two industry leaders, Sierra Wireless and Microsoft, are bridging the gap between OT and IT and empowering companies to unlock the benefits of the IIoT
