IT/OT Convergence Shapes the Future Market Dynamics for Operator Panels

ARC Advisory Group’s new market size and forecast report for the Operator Panels market reveals that the convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) and digital transformation within industries drive the market. The continued need to improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption, and increase operational visibility will help drive market growth. IT/OT convergence will drive the need for the integration of several disparate components on a single device, which will have a significant impact on the need for data visualization and control functions on plant floors.

"Converged OT and IT entails first moving enterprise-grade IT out of the data center and placing it at the data and control sources and sinks. When this IT reaches the edge, disparate OT functions are integrated into IT. This encourages IT and OT staff to collaborate with organizations, which fosters innovation and new efficiencies in IoT and Intelligent Edge solutions," according to Rita Liu, Director of Research and key author of ARC's Operator Panels Market Research Report.
