Simplifying SCADA Environments with Migration to the Cloud

The increase in complexity of operational technology control systems has highlighted a growing skills gap and security concerns around the increased connectivity of industrial systems has fundamentally shifted the approach needed to OT cybersecurity. The bid to reduce costs often results in a trade-off between increased operational capabilities and security, and it has become essential to find solutions that can help to address this problem at speed and at scale. Moving to cloud-based SCADA systems can, in some cases, dramatically decrease complexity, present significant opportunities to reduce capital expenditure and improve control capabilities. This presentation will discuss some of the key considerations in embarking on cloud migration and provide lessons learned from doing so.
  • Eliminating capital expenditure on control and backup centres and the need for dedicated SCADA teams
  • How cloud solutions can help in effectively creating a green field environment in which to automate
  • How we have ensured effective collaboration with key vendors to securely and cost-effectively migrate our OT environment to the cloud
  • Is scepticism around security and reliability of cloud solutions for industrial applications justified and what are the limitations?
