HPE's Operational Technology Focus
With the industrial space seeing the most opportunity from the Internet of Things, more vendors are focusing on the operational technology (OT) that is essential to manufacturing floors, such as SCADA systems and programmable logic controllers. No one knows that better than Dr. Tom Bradicich, the vice president and general manager of Servers, Converged Edge and IoT Systems at HPE.
Bradicich told CRN that HPE is "pioneering the convergence of OT and IT" as the company seeks to deploy its EdgeLine systems into the industrial vertical and focus more heavily on the connectivity, control and compute opportunities behind the Internet of Things.
The following are transcribed segments from CRN's discussion with Bradicich about IoT channel opportunities.
