The Digital Evolution of Process OT Systems

Episode 1 - Setting the Stage

What does the push for digitalization actually mean in the process OT world? What are the benefits? The risks? Where can it lead? Join Dynamysk VP Engineering Darcy Black for this three part video series that dives into all of these questions.

In Episode 1, Darcy sets the stage with some definitions and foundational information about the differences between IT and OT, and between digitalization and digitization (yes they are two different things!).
