SCADA as a Service is a new but naturally evolved method of providing process control to traditional wide area network applications. From an operations point of view, the method of system interaction (view & control) remains exactly the same. This provides a straight forward approach to adopting a service orientated SCADA system….. The timeline below (figure 1) briefly describes the evolution of SCADA systems since inception alongside the introduction and evolution of the internet within the industrial automation landscape. The fifth generation of SCADA systems is a natural evolution to the traditional SCADA platform by taking a virtualised environment and hosting it in a data centre. The ability to host and access the SCADA system anywhere using the internet unlocks the capability for SCADA as a Service….. The SCADA as a Service offering is a relatively new but naturally evolved method of providing process control to traditional wide area network applications. End users can immediately benefit simply and easily without changing the operational front end. Combining public networks with a hosted environment then coupling it with an established technology partner with industrial grade software that has been employed and field proven in the global market place for over 40 years, provides a structured and ruggedised solution for wide area network systems.
