New ARC Advisory Group research on the Distributed Control Systems market reveals that over the past several years, the distributed control systems (DCS) market has undergone changes that signal the end of the traditional, largely proprietary, and monolithic DCS. The proliferation of digital networks at the field level is changing the role and the demand for I/O in the process control system. While the nature of the physical I/O, control networks, and field networks is changing, emerging technologies like the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are forcing change even faster.
“Many leading suppliers believe that IIoT-enabled technology will provide better value while reducing overall cost. This appears to be accelerating the trend toward the convergence of information technology and operational technology in industrial environments. In addition to cloud computing, virtualization, and Ethernet-based networks, today’s DCS suppliers also find opportunities to leverage IIoT capabilities such as Big Data, analytics, and smart, IIoT-connected sensors for asset condition monitoring and other applications,” according to Harry Forbes, Research Director, at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Distributed Control Systems Global Market Research 2017-2022 report.
