10:40 AM Oxford Style Debate: OT vs IT – Who Should Be Spearheading Your Digital Transformation?

As the fourth industrial revolution is picking up pace, the convergence of IT and OT is quickly becoming a necessity, and Industry 4.0 frontrunners are starting to rethink their organizational structures to bring the IT and OT teams together in order to reap the benefits of improved decision-making and operational excellence. However, a lot of industrial organizations still fall victim to the organizational silos and an ongoing battle between IT and OT.  Which side are you on?

Join the debate and cast your vote:

- Which unit – IT or OT – is best suited to drive the Industry 4.0 strategy and investment decisions?
- Which unit has a better grasp of the manufacturing ecosystem and more experienced talent to implement new technologies?

Check out the incredible speaker line-up to see who will be joining Stefan.
