The transition from closed to open process automation systems is a time when the skill set needed by suppliers, system integrators, and most especially end users will be far different than today’s market.  This webcast will discuss the current directions in industrial application development and deployment as well as explore how this may map into future automation and software systems, with a focus on what the associated skill sets will be.

This Digital Transformation Council (DTC) web meeting will feature a presentation by ARC Research Director Harry Forbes, followed by an interactive discussion session with the users-only web meeting audience.
