FDT 3.0 and OPC UA: Enabling IT/OT Interoperability in the New Age of Automation

FDT 3.0 and OPC UA: Enabling IT/OT Interoperability in the New Age of Automation

Industrial manufacturing operations are in the early phase of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This era will be driven not just by data, but also by the intelligence that can be derived from it and applied across the operational landscape of equipment, processes, facilities, and people. Integrating OT and IT systems is an important first step along the path.

By unifying OT and IT systems and practices in a converged system architecture, businesses can eliminate inefficiencies and barriers to interoperability, improve automation, and accelerate innovation.
