When trying to save money, organizations sometimes focus on short-term fixes that maintain the status quo.

  • What type of hardware and operating systems to use
  • Utilizing smart devices and MQTT
  • The advantages of server-centric architecture and web-based deployment
  • Rapid development with templates and UDTs
  • Powerful alarming and reporting tools
