OT Network Management Systems Enable Digital Transformation Across Industries

ARC Advisory Group’s recent 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.

"Modern OT network management software now incorporates advanced functionalities such as predictive analytics, anomaly detection, and machine learning algorithms to manage network function with a more proactive, data-driven approach. Escalating connectivity demands for industrial operations have led to an increase in the hardware diversity of managed OT environments, ranging from switches, routers, gateways, firewalls, IPCs, wireless devices, to industrial automation equipment such as PLCs. As a result, there is a growing need for network management solutions that can effectively monitor and visualize this heterogeneous mix of hardware,” according to Patrick Arnold, Research Analyst and key author of ARC's OT Network Management Software Market Research.
