Nearly everywhere you look, there is some type of supervisory control and data acquisition system running behind the scenes, at your local supermarket, refinery, waste water treatment plant or even your own home. SCADA is an automation control system commonly used in modern industrial settings, and is designed to gather data in real time from remote locations in order to control equipment and conditions.
We still meet industrial companies who talk about SCADA solutions. We do agree with them, SCADAs are great solutions nowadays, but with the introduction of the Internet of Things, the game for SCADAs is coming to an end. At thethings.iO we are workings towards the end of SCADA and the rise of the Industrial IoT.
For more than 40 years Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) has helped various industries to monitor and manage their industrial applications and processes, helping to boost the efficiency of operations and reduce costs. Yet with technological advances expanding the range of systems and monitoring methods available, has SCADA had its day?
