Welcome to Operational Technology Solutions (OTS)! From time to time the Team will add posts here on happenings within OTS or interesting developments within the field of Operational Technology.
Operational Technology Solutions (OTS) is an Australian Company formed in 2012.
OTS was formed out of the need to find High Calibre Resources that understood Utilities – their aspirations and their challenges – and who were experts in the Operational Technology space.
Operational Technology (OT) refers to systems (such as AMI / DMS / EMS / OMS / NMS and SCADA) that manage equipment in the field.
OT systems have a different risk profile from traditional IT systems and often have an increased emphasis on security and require tighter response and resolution times.
The people that work on these systems often need to have an engineering background and an in depth understanding of the business.
The exciting development in the OT space is the convergence of IT and OT.
The need to improve operational performance, reduce costs and have a greater customer and environmental awareness has seen a proliferation of technologies in the OT space.
An exponential increase in the volume of data and the need to share this data across the enterprise has necessitated the OT space to adopt IT practices, standards and technologies.
At the same time there is much that OT can share with IT from improved system availability to massive volumes of data. It’s an exciting time!
Utility Stakeholders are demanding ever increasing benefits from their investments â emphasising the need for structured and focussed strategies to support the organisationâs goals and vision.
