Transform to Win: Disrupt or Be Disrupted
Manufacturing, transportation, and energy have embraced digital
technologies for decades. Because much of that technology resides in
isolated systems, many companies now struggle with information silos.
Silos create operational complexity. Because they restrict the flow
of information, they make it hard to operate efficiently. They create
a barrier to effectively managing security risk and compliance. They
impede agility, a problem in this era of rapidly changing customer
expectations and unprecedented opportunity.
Benefits When You Break
Digital Silos
• Manufacturing: Redefine secure,
efficient, and visible operations.
• Transportation: Deliver greater
safety and mobility with a better
passenger experience.
• Utilities: Deliver smarter, safer,
highly secure power grids for
reliable, efficient service.
• Oil and gas: Make operations
safer, more efficient, and
more secure.
A new wave of accelerated digital disruption is upon us. It promises to
replace 40 percent of today’s top incumbents within the next 5 years.
So, what are tomorrow’s disruptors doing today?
They’re transforming. They’re integrating IT, industrial controls, and
business processes end to end, and breaking information silos.
Tomorrow’s disruptors are making everything secure while allowing
information to flow where it needs to go. They’re communicating and
collaborating better. And setting the stage for an amazing digital future.
