Software has been the domain of information technology, but it is quickly becoming key to operations technology as well. Operating smart, networked machines from wind turbines to jet engines requires an intricate understanding of both the machines and the data and information that flows through them. The combination of these two disciplines is bringing new efficiencies and capabilities that do more—faster and cheaper. The key is leveraging connectivity, data, and mobility to optimize efficiency and deliver new services to customers. Join Hima Mukkamala of GE Digital to hear how software technology can help companies bridge the divide between IT and OT and how IT can help industrial companies build, deploy, and manage Industrial Internet applications that bring game-changing efficiencies to businesses.
