Taiwan's IBM announced that it has joined forces with a large domestic solution integrator (SI) to identify the pain points that are difficult to integrate between IT and OT in the manufacturing industry, and uses the IBM Smart Manufacturing 5C maturity model as the blueprint. Both parties will provide pre-introduction evaluation services, depending on needs. However, SI will provide OT and IT integration services, or IBM will provide more data-driven AI value-added services.
The US-China trade war has triggered a major reshuffle of the supply chain. The global manufacturing industry is facing unprecedented challenges. In the process of transforming smart manufacturing, the biggest problem is the integration of operating technology (OT) and information technology (IT). Only by working with the smart manufacturing ecosystem can we have a chance to survive in the changes and seize future business opportunities.
Edge computing will grow in importance as manufacturers see the development of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The interconnected factory, designed for manufacturing automation, will become an essential corporate goal.
IoT is the current mainstream trend in technology. In this way, we will discuss the industrial changes and market opportunities of the digital revolution, and will further analyze the technology and application fields of IoT.
