Every industry will need Operations Technology
As IoT becomes part of your product offering, it quickly becomes clear that the platform will need OT management. In the short term (and perhaps longer term), throwing this additional responsibility on IT will not make sense. While the technical skills may appear similar, customer facing IoT platforms will need different SLAs, different security responses, different technical capabilities.
SPK has been working closely with corporate IT for years supporting Engineering and Operations. It’s a natural extension for us to manage the IoT platform that supports the company’s products. We are already successfully managing a number of IoTMD (IoT for Med Device) platforms, meeting the technical and compliance challenges faced by this specific industry.
