With the introduction of V9.1, Siemens is making it easier for us to translate your process. Especially in the area of security, this latest version of PCS 7 takes a number of important steps. We offer solutions for different stages of any upgrade.
Siemens PCS 7 V9.1 now supports the latest Windows versions with thereby increased cybersecurity of the process installation. An important step is the standard support of Microsoft Defender with daily checks for updates deployed via standard procedure (WSUS).
PCS 7 V9.1 further optimised for Food & Beverage
Since V9.0, specific functionalities of the brewing world have been integrated into the Industry Library, (a PCS 7 add-on library). In PCS 7 V9.1 this has been further developed, a fun fact is that Prospact was part of it by acting as tester. Recommendations we made we see reflected in V9.1! By using standard libraries, your PCS 7 application is ready for future migrations fully supported by Siemens lifecycle support.
To eliminate risks during the upgrade, we determine in advance which parts of your application are not built according to Siemens standards. These deviations cause the risks during the upgrade. We carry out system checks based on Siemens compendiums: we use these to examine the entire existing installation. Based on the resulting advice, you can use our services as a system integrator as a next step. We then take care of the actual implementation of the migrations, or supervise the migration process.
