MAVERICK Technologies and ISA to Co-Host DCS Migration Webinar
MAVERICK Technologies and International Society of Automation (ISA) are co-hosting a complimentary webinar on DCS migration. The 90-minute webinar, "Straight Talk on DCS Migration," is scheduled for January 29, 2013, at 12 p.m. EST, and it will feature a panel of experts discussing the trends and challenges of DCS migration.
Discussion will focus on real results observed in the field, while specific topics will include the principles of DCS migration, five pitfalls to avoid and many industry trends. The panel will also present a case study on a recent legacy platform migration and will open the floor for questions about specific migration issues.
Paul J. Galeski, CEO and founder of MAVERICK said that every day they talk to manufacturers who want to know more about DCS migration — including the risks involved, making the business case and how to get started. "We want manufacturers to avoid the migration mistakes we've seen others make. That is why we have partnered up with ISA to address those concerns in this webinar," said Galeski.
