I/O Capabilities and Virtualization Are Driving DCS Modernization Projects

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Distributed Control Systems (DCS) market reveals that major trends in the architecture of distributed control systems are not adopted overnight. At present, ARC Advisory Group is following several ongoing trends in DCS.  These range from highly mature trends such as remote I/O enclosures to newly emerging trends such as the virtualization of control functionality. 

“Different DCS suppliers will be at different stages in adopting these trends in their own product lines.  However, looking over the entire market, we see several key trends that build on each other,” according to Harry Forbes, Research Director at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Distributed Control Systems Global Market Research report.

“Several others are now barely visible but should become quite important in the market over the next three to five years,” added Forbes.
