Like all modern technologies, the standards for SCADA software and hardware are rapidly evolving. Technological advancements in SCADA systems are expanding the range of, both, systems and monitoring methods available. A few of the latest/ongoing advancements related to SCADA systems or their applications are mentioned below.
Subscription/Flex Licensing: Traditionally, municipal water and wastewater systems had to purchase SCADA software, and high purchase costs and limited budgets made it difficult for them to opt for necessary upgrades. On the contrary, many SCADA companies now offer subscription and flex licensing options, allowing utilities to lease SCADA software licenses at a fraction of the purchase cost.
High-Performance HMI: High-performance HMIs allow for pre-attentive processing and improves situational awareness. With gradual improvements, these HMIs choose to optimize process areas where better graphics make the most sense, alongside allowing for a more consistent SCADA application.
Virtualization: Virtualization servers allow a single computer to run multiple operating systems at the same time. It reduces capital and operating costs; creates more streamlined systems; allows for system redundancy; minimizes or eliminates downtime; and increases IT productivity, efficiency, agility, and responsiveness.
Such advancements in SCADA systems are bringing significant trends in the US and Japan SCADA system market.
