How IT/OT Convergence Enables the Digitalization of Industrial Electrification

The digitalization journey is about creating real value through data-driven innovation. Companies must be agile and adaptable to be truly successful in today's markets, identifying entirely new ways of working across boundaries toward operational autonomy and faster time to innovation. At the core is the ability to harness the right data to make intelligent decisions about the business.  IT/OT convergence is a key enabler of this digitalization journey.
