The flexibility required of Manufacturing and Process industries today demands fully integrated, unified information systems. Making effective decisions and taking action, requires precise visibility into applications across the enterprise.

The interoperability of IT systems and advanced process control systems (DCSs, PLCs SCADA, Historians, lab systems) is the backbone of the information system evolution. An effective solution enables the use of large volumes of cleaned and relevant process data to improve plant performance without major capital expenditure.

A well designed system architecture addresses the combined driving forces: financial for those with P&L responsibility and performance for operational personnel. Reliable, clean information needs to pass in both directions; this requires intelligent interpretation of the data.

The technology required to deliver these solutions is cutting edge.
