We close out 2020 with a look at open industrial automation from a variety of perspectives.

We highlight some upstream oil & gas operations which require secure remote monitoring. We look at how standards based in the traditional Purdue automation model will have to evolve to guide such secure monitoring and finally, we summarize a report on how the new economics of project delivery may make it more affordable than ever to build safe, open solutions from the start.

Sincerely and with all the best wishes for a Merry Christmas and healthy and profitable New Year.

  • Upstream Oil & Gas Assets That Need Secure Remote Monitoring: Surely, all upstream oil & gas production assets could benefit from low-cost remote monitoring, but one supplier of asset management solutions has identified seven of the most critical. Not coincidentally they are also among the assets that could benefit from secure remote control.
  • OT Cyber Security Standards for Open Industry: Like other automation standards, OT cyber security standards are evolving to accommodate technological and business changes. One OT cyber security expert looks at the limitations of the Purdue model for this new age of open automation.
  • Reducing Risk of Digital Infrastructure Project Implementation: Digital transformation isn’t just for automating process operations. It is potentially changing the way that capital projects will be delivered, reducing the cost and speeding time to value for major automation initiatives
