Software & Integration Resource Center
The modern process plant can’t run without a successful program of software utilization and integration. As machines become more automated and sophisticated, their smooth integration becomes even more important. Programs need to speak to each other. Field instruments must communicate with the control room. Appropriate alarm notifications have to happen. Information must pass back and forth between all manner of programs and be accessible on all manner of devices. Software has to be secure. The Software and Integration Resource Center provides articles, white papers, news reports and product information about the latest technology to keep your industrial network humming—either wired or wirelessly.
Avenues and hurdles are getting streamlined thanks to more capable components, software and networks, but the primary task remains convincing potential users.
