It’s Only a Cloud Away from SCADA to the Internet of Things

The industrial sector has witnessed three revolutions since the 19th century. Mechanization powered by Watt’s steam engines came first in the early 1800s followed by the electricity-powered mass production in the 1900s. With the introduction of computers in the mainstream, the third industrial revolution shaped the way modern plants function. Industry 3.0 saw the emergence of control systems such as DAQ, SCADA, DCS along with other smaller system control configurations like PLCs. But there is no debate to the fact that the most prominent industrial architecture today is SCADA.
