While the escalating demand for process automation in various industries is single-handedly driving the deployment of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, it is the introduction of cloud-based SCADA systems that has truly changed the pace this market has been expanding at. Owing to their unique feature of gathering information from remote field devices and permitting the control and monitoring of several processes through a centralized computer, SCADA systems are used across large distances spanning multiple sites.
Remote sharing and accessing of data, more server space, and cheaper operating expenses have encouraged technology firms to offer cloud-based SCADA systems as a "service". However, this comes with its own set of challenges and the proactive adoption of these systems is restricted due to the performance, reliability, and security issues highlighted by several users. SCADA systems are used in a number of infrastructural, industrial, and facility processes in sectors such as power, oil and gas, and water and wastewater management.
