Disruptive technologies set off a new industrial revolution:

The Internet of ThingsBig DataThe CloudMobilitySocial Technologies


The unprecedented increase in data is changing everything

Major companies are leading in the ongoing digitization and data-fication of industry

Source: An Internet to Call Our Own, Smart Industry MagazineThe Data-fication of Industry

Aging infrastructure and equipment creating obsolescence

Global competition forcing co.s to lower costs and increase profitability

Price of oil pushing even more on lowering operating costs

Tech trends (IIoT, Cloud services, wireless technology & mobility) driving the process industries to embrace change The status quo with expensive DCS upgrades no longer viable

Other industries have an open, standards-based, secure & interoperable control system. Why not in oil and gas?

Recent developments at ExxonMobil:

Challenging traditional automation technologies and practices to significantly shorten project cycle times and lower capital investments

Asking automation suppliers to be innovative and not just make incremental improvements

In the IIoT era, more companies are moving toward platforms:

Editor-in-chief of Automation World writes: a confluence of trends that appear to indicate a move by both automation suppliers and end users toward an automation platform approach a move away from the long-held practice of buying discrete devices, software and/or systems for specific operations goals

Prediction from ARC Advisory Group: Suppliers of all kinds will tout the power of their platform in 2016The Rise of Platforms

OT-IT Convergence

Information Technology (IT):

Software, hardware, telecomm & other services for processing and transmitting info, facilitating communication, and generating data for enterprise use

Used mainly at management level

Built from the top down

Personnel adept at SQL databases, Java, etc.Operational Technology (OT):

Used for machinery and otherphysical equipment, monitoring and control systems, etc.

Used on the plant floor

Built from the ground up

Personnel adept at PLCs, HMI/SCADA systems, etc.Comparing IT and OT

Two Separate Worlds

IT worked from the top down, deploying and maintaining data-driven infrastructure largely to the management side of business. OT built from the ground up, starting with machinery, equipment, and assets and moving up to monitoring and control systems. For a long time, these two divisions kept to their own turf and found their own effective solutions to problems

Two Worlds Collide

Until Something BIG Happened:

Then came smart machines, Big Data, and the Industrial Internet, and the worlds of IT and OT suddenly collided.

- GE.com, Converge and Conquer

Two Worlds Collide

Definition of IT-OT Integration:

"IT/OT integration is the end state sought by organizations (most commonly, asset-intensive organizations) where instead of a separation of IT and OT as technology areas with different areas of authority and responsibility, there is integrated process and information flow.


OT-IT Integration

Benefits of OT-IT integration:

More information for the enterprise (better decisions, more field device data, OT data benefits business applications)Reduced costs Lower risksOptimized business processesFaster development and integration Standardized communications and control

OT-IT Integration

Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) technologies allow for decoupling of device protocols from applications

MOM provides for more efficient information distribution, increased scalability, and much shorter development times

Publish/Subscribe replaces traditional polling methods

Data goes into infrastructure and not directly into applications One that Decouples Device Protocols from Applications:A Different Data Architecture

Ignition bridges the gap between the enterprise and the plant floor by converging OT & IT.

Ignition IIoT

While a number of different communication protocols are currently in use, the Message Queueing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) transfer protocol is quickly emerging as the standard for IIoTWhich Protocol to Use?MQTT Protocol for IIoT


Edge-of-network devices publish to MQTT server on- or off-premise

Easily push data from thousands of devices to a central location where industrial & business applications access it
