Abstract

The evolution of HMI/SCADA systems, from Supervisory to Advisory

HMI/SCADA, since its introduction has taken various forms and have been defined/redefined multiple times. However, their evolution has not been more pronounced than in the last 5-7 years. Some may debate that HMI/SCADA systems were the first form of IoT solutions, however, the IoT era began in earnest in 2015 and since then HMI/SCADA as a solution and concept has started to take on a different meaning. IoT combined with the Digitalization push and  interest of Cloud technologies into the OT space have led to a truly transformational need for traditional SCADA systems. The Supervisory aspect of a SCADA has moved to becoming increasing Advisory fueled with AI/ML technologies that are increasingly becoming mainstream.
