Manufacturers continue to pursue cost optimisation and a reduction of risk in response to the continued and unprecedented barrage of business challenges. Meaning the focus on increased productivity and ever improving uptime has heightened and businesses are looking to their operating technology to deliver more efficiency.
In the pursuit of OT excellence, modern hyperconnected systems are being fused with aging environments, introducing opportunity, but also an increased threat landscape and risk. Yet those manufacturing enterprises able to harness these innovations and achieve true operational technology excellence will be those best positioned to not just survive, but to thrive, despite the ongoing barrage.
In this webinar, The Manufacturer and ServiceNow discuss the tipping point facing many Manufacturers, along with the disruptive opportunity presented by true OT excellence and explore the unified approach to bringing IT and OT on to a single platform purposefully designed to improve productivity, deliver great insight, and reduce operating risk.
