Close cooperation between IT and OT
BICS Asset Management manages all available information from devices in the network (types, names, IP address, categiroes, sub components and other available information) over the entire lifecycle as part of network management.
Furthermore the BICS Asset Management Module is used to identify and real-time-monitor information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) assets throughout their lifecycle from acquisition to disposal. It helps to ensure the timely maintenance of IT/OT assets and to track changes to them.
The convergence of OT and IT helps managers make better decisions to improve operational security, security and profitability. Asset Management forms the bridge to devices that do not have an IP address based on a detailed component database.
