Foundational data standards play a crucial role in integrating IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology) systems. The following are some of the key outcomes and benefits of using these standards:
➡️ Interoperability: Foundational data standards ensure that IT and OT systems can effectively communicate, share business rules and work flows, and exchange data with each other, leading to improved integration and collaboration whilst reducing technical debt.
➡️ Consistency: These standards provide a common language, semantics, status points, metrics and data formats, which, when applied as a business process helps to ensure consistency and accuracy in data exchange and reduces the likelihood of errors and dysfunctional information reporting.
➡️ Scalability: The use of foundational data standards enables organisations to scale IT and OT systems more easily as they grow and evolve, while maintaining data integrity and reducing technical debt.
➡️ Security: The use of common data formats and protocols can improve security by reducing the risk of cyber attacks and other security threats, as well as making it easier to monitor, detect and treat potential threats.
💡 In conclusion, the use of Foundational Data Standards is critical for the successful integration of IT and OT systems in alignment with your Business Strategy, Models and Plans; as it enables organisations to effectively communicate and exchange data, ensuring consistency, appropriate governance, scalability, and security.
