How Industrial DevOps is Shaping the PLC Engineering Process of the Future

For nearly a decade, information technology (IT) has had a growing influence on operations technology (OT), but it has been more of a slow evolution than a dynamic revolution for industrial automation systems migrating to open architectures and virtualized deployment.

In this report, ARC Advisory Services predicts that the key to the success of software-defined automation will not be virtualized controllers, but rather the tools and environment in which they are deployed.

Read ARC View: How Industrial DevOps Is Shaping the PLC Engineering Process of the Future to learn why it’s time to rethink the PLC engineering process, from software development to the automated orchestration of PLC fleets and why Software Defined Automation is pioneering the concept of Industrial DevOps to bring IT best practices for development and operations to industrial automation.
