Is Your Control Room Still Running Windows 7?

Is Your Control Room Still Running Windows 7?
Your assets may be at risk

As of January 2020, Windows 7 updates and security patches are no longer available. This puts operator and control room workstations built on this platform at risk to security threats.

But, upgrading often isn’t quite as simple as it sounds...

What about software? Will your control systems applications run as expected on a new platform?
What about hardware? Is now a good time to upgrade existing workstations for future proofing?
What about PLC and HMI firmware compatibility?
What about HMI and SCADA screen interfaces?
What about operator training?
