Operational Technology (OT)

Operational technology (OT) refers to the use of hardware and software to monitor and control physical processes. Unlike Information Technology (IT), which focuses on data processing and communication, OT deals directly with the control and management of physical equipment like machinery, sensors, valves, and other industrial components.

OT includes systems such as SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), DCS (Distributed Control Systems), and other control systems that interact directly with machinery and equipment to automate processes and optimize performance.

OT systems are crucial in industries such as manufacturing, energy, transportation, and utilities, enabling efficient and safe operation of critical infrastructure.
