5 Steps to retrofitting your industrial environment

Digitalization and automation of manufacturing processes in recent years have driven the convergence of IT and OT. One of the biggest advantages of this is new ways to aggregate data. New technologies and concepts like the IIoT and analytics, among other things, allow for the collection and analysis of more data than ever before. This in turn drives decision-making and other concepts like preventive and predictive maintenance. However, many machines and devices on the factory floor are too old to support these new data collection scenarios; they simply do not provide the right connectivity, data interfaces, or data points that are required.
