SCADA 2017Reducing Operational Risks, Increasing Cost Efficiencies and Integrating New Technologies
Given the prevalence of increasing automation and rapidly evolving technology, SCADA’s role in operations is only set to increase.
Consider these Drivers Currently Influencing the Economy:
- It is estimated that the Industrial Internet of Things is set to include over 100 billion devices
- 44% of Australian jobs are susceptible to automation
- Power companies are expected to meet State renewable energy targets before 2020, despite operating on out-dated legacy systems
- Although the Federal government recently provided $2 billion to fund water industry, this sector is constantly struggling to maintain and operate its infrastructure
These factors amount to the expectation that manufacturing, utilities and infrastructure must prepare for a future with a vast increase in the amount of data SCADA is expected to collect, store and process.
With this in mind, the 8th Annual SCADA Australia Summit has been designed to prepare SCADA operators for the future by reducing the operational risks of Automation, put collected data to use and create costs efficiencies in companies and retro-fit out-dated systems with new technologies.
Main themes will include:
Integrating SCADA systems into existing framework (IT/OT integration)
Limiting vulnerability through effective technology (Internet of Things and Cyber Security)
Increasing business intelligence with data analysis
