IntegrationWorks bridges OT and IT with help from MuleSoft

Integration specialist IntegrationWorks Australia has released a MuleSoft certified connector for IntegrationWorks PI Historian.

IntegrationWorks PI Historian is designed to quickly and easily connect operational technology (OT) networks with IT networks.

The IntegrationWorks PI Historian connector provides the data integration and time series stamping of OT network data to more seamlessly converge OT and IT networks, using MuleSoft for connectivity.

Benefits claimed include less siloed IT and OT departments, reduced development and support costs, and improved compliance with regulatory standards.

"We've taken a significant step to provide comprehensive integration solutions for our customers in mining, utilities, food processing and manufacturing in Australia by building the IntegrationWorks PI Historian connector on MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform," said IntegrationWorks managing director Ian Richards.

"Traditionally, IT and OT have had very separate roles in an organisation. IT is typically tasked with moving data between computers and humans, whereas OT is tasked with moving data between 'things,' such as sensors, actuators, smart machines, and other devices to enhance manufacturing, mining or industrial processes," he added

"This is now changing as companies want to collect telemetry data from the OT side to drive analytics and business processes on the IT side. The two networks are blurring and it has huge implications for IT networking and cybersecurity teams."

The connector will be available to all Anypoint Platform users via Anypoint Exchange.
