Description

Virtualization in Industrial Automation | Adoption Report 2021

Based on a survey of senior OT decision makers in discrete, hybrid, and process manufacturing, the report analyzes the virtualization of industrial automation. The report investigates trends and challenges of virtualization of operational technology along the ISA 95 automation pyramid (1. In general, 2. Control infrastructure & systems, and 3. Controllers & PLCs).

Find out:

  • How are automation systems effected as companies digitize their manufacturing/operations?
  • Which software workloads have companies currently virtualized and which software workloads are planned to be virtualized in the near future?
  • Do companies have comprehensive digitalization strategies and how do they impact the management of automation systems?
  • How do companies procure automation software today, and in three years?
  • Which operating systems are companies using for real-time virtual controllers?
  • What are the most important decision-making factors when choosing a vendor for virtualized PLCs?
  • How much are companies willing to pay for virtual PLCs compared to legacy PLCs?
  • Do companies have a global standard for PLC/DCS vendors?
  • Which vendors are companies using today and how likely is it that they are considered for virtual PLC setups in the future?
