Industrial companies are challenged to leverage the significant volume of data being collected by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for improved, closed loop decision support. At the same time, Operational Technology (OT) systems running industrial applications must be improved upon to better visualize performance while seamlessly integrating with Information Technology (IT) applications.
“System Platform 2017 offers a revolutionary new way of building re-usable industrial applications and content, similar to the approach with modern web page development,” said Norm Thorlakson, Vice President, HMI & Supervisory Software, Industry Business, Schneider Electric. “This engineering work can now be done with practically zero customization and scripting, and provides seamless integration with a diverse variety of industrial hardware and software. Such capabilities empower operational and engineering excellence without increase in total cost of ownership.”
System Platform 2017 offers usage simplicity, new software consumption models and ease-of-use as top directives. It offers accelerated time-to-value and flexible deployment models to help industrial companies scale faster and accelerate adoption of new Industrial IoT, cloud and mobility technologies. This launch also delivers the Schneider Electric EcoStruxure vision to provide industry leading software applications and analytics capabilities to execute digital transformation strategies.
