Notes: Representatives from Cisco, Panduit and Rockwell Automation recently briefed ARC Advisory Group on behalf of Industrial IP Advantage. The topic for the briefing was the need to reskill the industrial workforce in this age of information-enabled operations. According to Paul Brooks of Rock-well Automation, this “reskilling” will involve new industrial network design skills, new training approaches, and greater collaboration among information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) personnel.
