According to the Industrial Ethernet Book, “by 2020 there will be an estimated 20.8 billion devices in the IoT, and more than 30 billion devices will be wireless connected.” However, this digital transformation also means that the line between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) is blurring more and more with every passing every year.

Our company’s integration roots run deep: Our founder and CEO Steve Hechtman worked as an integrator for a quarter of a century, and the pain points he encountered led him to develop a better solution, eventually culminating in the launch of the Ignition industrial application platform.
