Unified Data Infrastructure Needed for Insightful Analytics
Digital transformation opportunities often emerge when thought-provoking data becomes readily available for critical, conceptual, innovative and intuitive types of thinking. But data silos and isolated business applications often prevent easy access to data and become obstacles to progress. To get past these obstacles, industrial organizations need a connectable, easy-to-navigate data infrastructure that centralizes all data and transcends both IT and OT silos. Drawing from her experience across a range of industries, LSI’s Jolene Baker discusses how organizations can implement such architectures and, once data is readily accessible, deploy data analytics and pattern recognition tools to create different manipulations or views of the same data to make it specifically relevant to multiple application or business requirements.
