Despite industry-wide excitement around the IIoT and the convergence of IT and OT systems, there remains a persistent gap between existing OT systems (SCADA, DCS, ICS, etc.) and available IIoT technologies. The gap between OT and IT spans many levels, including the basic vernacular used to describe overall infrastructures, data representations, security, and deep understanding of existing device protocols and the applications that speak these protocols. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the need for both technology suppliers and users to develop migration strategies that allow legacy systems to participate in the IIoT.
