Brock Solutions was recently spotlighted in an article by AutomationWorld on the topic of IT and OT convergence, and Brock’s view on the topic from the perspective of Brock’s co-CEO, John Southcott. The article talks about John’s history coming from an IT background, being a partner at Deloitte consulting for years, to an OT driven manufacturing space and the learnings and insights that ensued. The article provides some examples of some basic OT needs that IT can address, and goes on to highlight Brock’s work in applying Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices to the OT environment, something which has brought our customers tremendous value.
