The convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) is raising questions within manufacturing and industrial organizations. Who will design and oversee the complex network infrastructures required to take advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)? You can achieve the specialized skillset needed with industrial networking courses and certification.
IIoT enables organizations to transform their business and gain a competitive edge. A unique skillset is required to securely converge the industrial plant floor with your IT infrastructure with maximum efficiency and return on investment. Before you can realize the significant benefits to be achieved in productivity, quality, and safety, both IT and OT teams need to understand the significant complexities of the converged environment.
