OT Management: ServiceNow’s newest product for manufacturing
Now, ServiceNow users can easily unlock the benefits of workflow digitization across the manufacturing sector through new ServiceNow Operational Technology (OT) Management software. Built on the Now Platform, the new software addresses manufacturers’ need to confirm the availability of their critical systems.
“Manufacturers understand that the ability to securely run operations from anywhere and enable shopfloor workers with digital tools are crucial to compete and win in today’s dynamic global economy. ServiceNow is unlocking the benefits of workflow digitization with a single platform that improves experiences and outcomes across the manufacturing value chain,” says Marshall Tyler, VP of Industry Solutions at ServiceNow. OT Management addresses workflow issues with the operational technology and allows manufacturers to:
• Avoid downtime and improve response and recovery with workflows
• Minimize blind spots with a unified view across IT
• Proactively understand the connections and dependencies
• Reduce risk and streamline compliance efforts with pre-built workflows
“It’s really key that we think about having an industry strategy and be able to tailor our products and capabilities to the needs of any specific industry and their customers and their employees,” Tyler said. “What we’re doing here in manufacturing – and overall [in] vertical strategies – is really critical to what we think is the foundation of our company in the future. This is a really big deal for us,” he added.
OT management as a digital investment
Current events like COVID-19 and Industry 4.0 manufacturing trends are urging manufacturers to invest digitally in manufacturing operations. Now, manufacturers emphasize improving decision-making and unlocking productivity by empowering workers with pertinent data and digital workflows. Be it Atos, Deloitte, Fujistu, Infosys, or Siemens, all global brands are adopting the OT management tool to manage and control their manufacturing operations.
“Digitalization is rapidly transforming industrial operating environments into hyper-connected industries that require the seamless integration of physical and digital assets working with internet-like speed. To secure the digital-driven economy of the future, industrial companies need cybersecurity solutions capable of monitoring, detecting, and acting on credible threat intelligence targeting operating environments. Our new collaboration brings together Siemens Energy’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR), powered by Eos.ii, solution with ServiceNow Operational Technology Management (OT Management) to provide purpose-built cybersecurity offering that protects the digital operating environment with precision defense,” says Leo Simonovich, vice president and global head, Industrial Cyber and Digital Security at Siemens Energy.
“ServiceNow is a key component of Deloitte’s global growth strategy, both around enabling our clients’ success and around empowering our internal operations,” says Stephen Laaper, principal and Smart Factory leader at Deloitte. ServiceNow has helped Deloitte get 40-60% productivity gains in IT support after streamlining business processes in ITSM, compliance, security, customer service, finance and talent management.
