OT Network Management Systems Enable Digital Transformation Across Industries

ARC Advisory Group’s research on OT Network Management Software reflects the ongoing role of connectivity and associated network software as foundational enablers of digital transformation across industries and applications. OT-centric suppliers are enhancing their network management offerings with a wide range of functionality, centralized management capabilities, and more flexibility in deployment and purchasing options. Meanwhile, IT-centric suppliers are adapting their enterprise and commercial monitoring products to be compatible with OT spaces to better serve the growing number of end users with converged IT/OT environments.

OT Network Management Software Strategic Issues 

hydrogen electrolyzers market trendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the OT Network Management Software Market Research provides detailed quantitative, current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows:

Ecosystem-Based Approach to Network Planning and Management

Industrial networking solutions should be assessed from the perspective of target suppliers’ ecosystem participation and partner network. Some vendors are not able to provide end-to-end solutions for network infrastructure, management, and enterprise integration. Vendors need to offer flexible and interoperable solutions that can future-proof the OT network and ensure continuous operations, should networking needs change.

Deployment Location of Network Management Software

Network management software users should deliberate whether they prefer their software to reside at the cloud level or on on-premise devices and data centers. Cybersecurity, data sensitivity, accessibility, scalability, and latency requirements are the main factors to consider for software deployment. Cloud-based solutions offer the advantage of accessibility from anywhere with internet connectivity, facilitating remote management and collaboration with distributed IT/OT experts and operators. Cloud tools provide scalability, allowing organizations to adapt to changing needs without substantial infrastructure investments. On-premise deployments offer greater control over data security and compliance, particularly for highly regulated industries or environments without the IT and cybersecurity resources to manage cloud-based solutions. Moreover, they offer lower latency and greater reliability for mission-critical operations.

Match Network Management Selection to Operator Sophistication

Given the diverse range of industrial networks ranging from traditional to highly digitalized and converged environments, OT network stakeholders should select network management software that align with the IT sophistication of their organization. For OT environments with advanced IT capabilities, a solution offering sophisticated management software with comprehensive network data analytics, automation tools, application environment visibility, and IT integration capabilities will be advantageous. Those with fewer IT resources should prioritize vendors providing user-friendly solutions with intuitive interfaces and management support services. By carefully assessing their IT capabilities and requirements, industrial network operators can ensure that network management software serves their operational objectives without getting mired in complexity.
