Four moves to turn data into information for business into four videos: we explain the convergence between IT and OT in a Web miniseries with Franco Andrighetti, managing director of Efa Automazione.
In the first episode Andrighetti explained that the data, in order to be a founding element of digital transformation, must be switched into information useful to the company.
In the second episode he explained how the highways that must carry data between operations and ICT are to be done, in the third episode the databases have come into play.
And here we are at the final episode: the realization of IT-OT convergence, with metamorphosis, the transition, finally, from data to information.
As Andrighetti explains, the data, after being transported, processed and normalized, is located on the cloud and is the prerogative of the large platforms of artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive maintenance, augmented reality, which allow to transform it into useful information
In this context, the cloud is transformed into a functional and large order: from databases to datalakes. And new protocols are being introduced, which Andrighetti explains: MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) and OPC-UA (Object Linking and Embedding for Process Control Unified Archite
In this context algorithms based on mathematical models process data and return them in the form of information.
Metamorphosis has been accomplished, information is the final result that allows to monetize the data.
Efa Automation, Andrighetti says, has the technologies, devices, the capabilities to operate with data in the cloud to perform global analyses that impact directly on the profitability of the business.
