Phase 0 is the most important phase in an operation’s digital transformation/modernization journey. A big component of Phase 0 is developing a logical framework to solve the desired business case(s). The biggest hurdle to overcome in implementing a modernization strategy is getting the data from the OT systems. Up to 70-80% of the effort is at this level and if it is not thought through beforehand during Phase 0, it can lead to delays in ROI and in some cases complete failure. This discussion will lead you through the history of hurdles that have been overcome and the solution sets that have solved them to create standard, repeatable and secure interoperable solutions.
