Webinar - Cloud-Based SCADA And IIOT Technology: What Operators Need To Know
The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) landscape is changing fast. Operators need to understand how various technologies compare so that your SCADA system can take your organization into the future - safely.
- Cyber Security — How IT architecture is fundamental to security and what are the weak links?
- System Impacts — Can system analytics enable optimization of energy, water, and staff resources?
- Longevity — How well will today’s systems scale and integrate with other emerging IIOT technologies?
- Lifetime Cost of Ownership — How affordable are the maintenance costs and required expertise?
- Gain system-wide visibility
- View trends
- Perform condition-based maintenance
- Optimize energy and water consumption, while saving operator time
