The crux of integration: exploring infrastructure evolution in the process industry
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Informatics. (IT Management)
2010 (English)In: Industrial informatics design, use and innovation: perspectives and services / [ed] Jonny Holmström, Mikael Wiberg & Andreas Lund, Hershey: IGI Global , 2010, 73-84 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this chapter is to identify and explore critical challenges for the process industry in IT infrastructure integration and adaptation. The authors identify four critical challenges in the integration and adaption of IT infrastructure in the process industry: integration as an ongoing process; maintaining stability in the installed base; locking the right stuff in; and balancing user value, continuity of production and compatibility. Given the centrality of IT infrastructure in today’s process industries the importance of dealing with these challenges must be emphasized. The four challenges identified in this study are of such a complexity they can only lend themselves to the evolutionary strategy. Such a strategy is in concert with the sensibility towards risk the authors find in the paper industry.
