According to Fortune Business Insights, the global industrial automation market, which was valued at $157 Billion USD in 2018, is expected to reach nearly $297 Billion USD by 2026. As smart automation and digital solutions take hold, the role of industrial automation system integrators becomes more important than ever. Systems are more connected and data sharing is critical for executing end-to-end process optimization.
Systems integration is not simple work. Connecting a diverse set of applications and systems in a way that business requirements for speed and profitability are met requires the skill of experienced experts. Good systems integration also allows end users to continue to focus on their core competency of plant production safety and efficiency instead of dealing with the distractions of systems malfunctions. Having a trusted partner to implement these complicated solutions helps ensure success, delivers solutions benefits faster, and reduces overall project risk.
In hybrid industries, like specialty chemicals, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical, where automation systems address both process and discrete manufacturing steps, there exists the unique need to bridge information from these varied automation applications. Success in achieving a seamless automation integration in such environments requires partnering with consulting organizations and technology providers who understand the nuances of hybrid industries.
