Want to know how to achieve faster SCADA projects?

Want to know how to achieve faster SCADA projects?
Within the myriad of possible applications for SCADA software there is a common theme for both the end user and system integrator, and that is a need to respond to competitive pressures. The reason manufacturing, process, logistics and utility businesses all invest in new control and monitoring software is to build more efficient, cost-effective operations. Even within publicly owned utilities there is significant pressure to match the operational efficiency of commercial enterprises.

Cyber-security in the emerging digital world

Cyber-security in the emerging digital world
It seems a long time ago now since various malware attacks on the operational layer changed the security landscape and highlighted vulnerabilities in the de-facto automation architecture. However, as we move along the road towards Smart Manufacturing with a view to improving efficiency, productivity and reliability of supply using the principles of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the subject of cyber-security is becoming arguably even more important.
