Straight Talk on DCS Migration

Every day we talk to manufacturers who are struggling with questions about their DCS migration. The risks involved. The business case. How to get started. We understand your concerns and what’s at stake for your organization — and your career. To help you get the information you need, we’re sponsoring a free webinar in conjunction with the ISA called Straight Talk on DCS Migration.

Join us as four top DCS migration experts discuss the topics and trends surrounding DCS migration — using examples of multiple platforms from across the field. In just 90 minutes, you’ll tap into more than 87 years of experience. These are real engineers, and they’ll discuss real migration and real results. There’s no hidden sales agenda. We just want to help you avoid the migration mistakes others have already made.

The webinar will include:

  • A preview of trends across industries
  • Five pitfalls to avoid
  • The principles of DCS migration, including front-end planning
  • A case study on a recent legacy platform migration
  • A 30-minute Q&A session where you can get your specific questions answered

You might remember that we hosted a webinar earlier this year called Upgrading DCS with No BS. Straight Talk on DCS Migration continues the conversation, but with a full panel of experts ready to provide advice.
