According to the results of a 2015 MPI/Rockwell survey “The Internet of Things Has Finally Arrived,” less than half (45%) of manufacturers surveyed said that their OT and IT teams collaborated on issues such as upgrading legacy operations or enterprise systems; A scant 37% reported a collaborative approach to solving technical enterprise issues. Nearly 10% reported no collaboration between the two departments.
