About the Event:

The convergence of IT and OT has become increasingly vital, and CIOs play a crucial role in ensuring its success. Leveraging OT and integrating it with IT business data can accelerate digitalization and increase agility and adaptability. Data convergence is essential and involves utilizing front-office software and enterprise data to meet site operations requirements. Conversely, IT may need to adopt new tools to gather OT data and integrate it with business data for analysis and automation across departments.

Utilizing a unified data management solution can streamline the process, saving time and expenses while providing better operational awareness and outcomes.

During this webinar, we will explore a cutting-edge data management solution that seamlessly integrates edge (OT) and operations/business (IT) data. This powerful tool organizes and blends data in ways that enhance operational awareness, providing businesses with valuable insights, information, and a platform for automation. By leveraging this solution, businesses can streamline their operations and make data-driven decisions that improve efficiency, reduce costs, and drive innovation.

Key Topics Covered

  • How to blend and curate IT and OT data across an enterprise 
  • The biggest OT data quality issues- time series tag descriptions and time stamp synchronization 
  • Cross-department optimization analytics and enablement



Value added and thoughtful leader focused on helping IT managers to understand the world of operations technology and OT managers to understand the new capabilities that IT brings to the world of IoT. It is my belief that by helping the two teams to work together, we can accomplish great things and transform the industry.
