11:40 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: The Future of SCADA – The Next Generation of SCADA Technology

To understand and anticipate the future of SCADA, it is important to perceive the next-generation design. This will shape the application of all automation and control systems and as such take SCADA technology to its peak. This panel discussion will bring experts together to explore and discuss the following:

  • Understanding the benefits of the IIoT and what this means for the future of automation and SCADA
  • How to develop strategies to achieve the dream of integrating SCADA systems with the full extent of operators’ monitoring networks
  • Analysing current and future trends of the SCADA industry and where it will potentially lead to, thus achieving maximum efficiency and productivity

4:20 PM CASE STUDY: How Shell is Increasing Awareness of SCADA’s Rapidly Evolving Industry to Avoid a ‘Talent Gap’

The global SCADA market is heavily influenced by the rising level of awareness among consumers pertaining to the benefits of SCADA. However, there is an increased need to attract new talent as SCADA and HMI systems are being deployed with greater frequency than ever. Without early detection of obsolete talent in the industry, the gap will likely continue to grow and eventually reach the point of irreversibility. In this session Matthew will discuss:

  • Understanding the current and future trends of employment in the SCADA industry
  • How to implement strategies to re-design the image of SCADA to attract fresh new talent
  • How to re-evaluate and build a solid internal SCADA culture in order to address concerns externally
