ARC and Control Want to Know

Sept. 12, 2013
Are reliability issues and maintenance costs alone enough to justify new IT deployments?

ARC Advisory Group and Control magazine are conducting a survey of stakeholders and champions to develop a better understanding of how industrial organizations quantify the business value created with modern automation or IT deployment, and how companies justify automation and IT projects or migrations. We're particularly interested in learning whether reliability issues and maintenance costs alone are enough to justify new deployments, or if additional business justification is required.

All answers will be kept strictly confidential and no company-specific information or individual responses will be disclosed. The survey is designed to take less than 10 minutes to complete, and participants will receive a free summary of the aggregated results. The survey can be found at
