SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW) today announced new industry-specific solutions for manufacturers at Knowledge 2021, ServiceNow’s flagship digital experience for its customers, partners, and developer community. ServiceNow’s manufacturing solutions will connect people, processes, knowledge, and technologies on the Now Platform to help make operations more efficient and secure while enhancing the employee experience. Leading manufacturing companies including Siemens Energy are early adopters of ServiceNow’s new manufacturing solutions.
“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,” said Marshall Tyler, VP of Industry Solutions at ServiceNow. “ServiceNow is unlocking the benefits of workflow digitization with a single platform that improves experiences and outcomes across the manufacturing value chain.”
Introducing Operational Technology Management
ServiceNow’s newest industry-product, Operational Technology Management (OT Management), addresses manufacturers’ need to ensure the availability of their critical technology - a demand accelerated by COVID-19. Built on the Now Platform, OT Management is tailored to the unique requirements of operational technology, and allows manufacturers to gain:
- Visibility: Minimize blind spots with a unified view across IT and OT and proactively understand the connections and dependencies between systems with automated discovery of OT systems
- Availability: Avoid downtime and improve response and recovery with workflows and change management processes designed for OT systems
- Security: Reduce risk and streamline compliance efforts with pre-built proactive and reactive security workflows
“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,” said Leo Simonovich, vice president and global head, Industrial Cyber and Digital Security at Siemens Energy. “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 a purpose-built cybersecurity offering that protects the digital operating environment with precision defense."
Connecting Workers for a New Era of Smart Manufacturing
Manufacturing trends like Industry 4.0 and global events like COVID-19 have accelerated digital investments in manufacturing operations. To maximize the return on these investments, manufacturers need to now empower their workers with relevant data and digital workflows to improve decision making and unlock productivity.
ServiceNow’s new manufacturing solutions will connect workers to digital operations, empowering them with training, knowledge and access to real-time data and communication. By putting workers at the center of the factory digitization experience, organizations can improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduce costs, and drive continuous improvement.
