Energy and utility organisations continue to pursue cost optimisation and a reduction of risk in response to a persistent barrage of business challenges. As pressures to meet these dual outcomes escalates there are heightened expectations for productivity and uptime improvements. Businesses are looking to their operating technology (OT) to deliver more efficiency.

But as OT excellence is chased, modern hyperconnected systems are being fused with aging environments. This brings opportunity but also increased threat and risk landscape. Businesses must understand the dynamics around both to thrive in challenging times.

At this webinar, Utility Week content director Jane Gray will speak with ServiceNow’s utilities industry specialist Ben Barker about:

  • What’s new in OT-IT convergence for Energy & Utility organisations
  • New definitions of real OT excellence
  • Rising opportunities to bring IT and OT on to a single platform designed to improve productivity, deliver insight, and reduce operating risk
  • Real examples of recent OT enhancements in the energy and utilities sector
