Elecsys Announces A New White Paper: The Advantages of Cloud-Based SCADA Systems for Operations
Oct 13, 2020
Older SCADA systems lack flexibility and scalability. When other departments needed to collect data for new business purposes or analytics, OT (Operational Technology) often had to tell them "no" due to the potential impact on the SCADA operation. The MQTT architecture provides much more capability than older, rigid, private network poll/response systems. MQTT and the Cloud allow progressive OT groups to accommodate these requests much more quickly to the whole enterprise's benefit.
Tandy points out that Cloud systems offer tight security that can satisfy even the most critical OT applications. He specifically addresses the length to which Cloud providers and cell/satellite communications providers go to ensure security.
In the age of reduced OT staff and ever-growing demands, the need for new OT technologies has increased dramatically. Lastly, he discusses how to transition older SCADA systems to the more modern Cloud and MQTT architecture without losing any legacy capabilities. The significant benefits of upgrading to the Cloud far outweigh any short-term startup learning curves.
