Your Industrial IoT Primer: Bridge the gap between OT and IT

If you’re excited about the possibilities the IoT offers for your application—or if you just want to be prepared for the future—here are some ideas to get started now.

  • Start small

The Internet of Things is a big concept with lots of moving parts. Developing a strategy to begin implementing IoT in your business doesn’t have to be complicated. Start small and experiment.

  • Educate

A good place to start is to learn about new technologies that are involved with the IoT. If you’re coming from the process control and industrial automation side of the OT/IT convergence, it’s a good idea to bone up on your basic networking skills.

  • Start your first IoT project - Identify potential, Collect data, Centralize and analyze.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. And technologies to accomplish all of these applications are available today, off the shelf. It’s like magic, but it isn’t. It’s the Internet of Things. It’s going to change everything, and we’re all going to be a part of it.
