Software is still eating the world, and we are busily working on what that means to automation from Cloud to Embedded solutions. In this process the question arises, “ Is a SCADA system still necessary?”. Join me to understand how SCADA is an essential part of the Digital Enterprise and how to leverage SCADA for transparent operation. Learn how local domain expertise will make data smarter and improve process efficiencies. Through the combination of SCADA (Operational Technology, OT) and Cloud (Information Technology, IT), the resulting transparent operation can drive both production performance to new levels. SCADA has long been operating at the juncture between IT/OT and as the definition and requirements of Edge evolves, SCADA plays a major role.
