The IoT and IIoT (Internet of Things and Industrial Internet of Things) acronyms indicate all those technologies that make it possible to transform any object, be it a sensor, an actuator, a vehicle or an appliance, into a device connected to the Internet, which is in able to send data to the cloud using light and fast protocols such as MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport).
The increasing trend to use cloud applications has pushed SCADA technologies to evolve towards integration with the Internet of Things. In fact, SCADA systems can increase the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things. By integrating the two technologies, you can get a much faster, more detailed and even more safe collection and verification of company data.
These systems, due to their architecture, are especially suited to manage:
These systems include the key enabling technologies (Key Enabling Technologies - KET's) of Industry 4.0 (SCADA, IoT, cloud, big data, cybersecurity).

SCADA applications are used today in most industrial fields and are an indispensable aid for all companies, regardless of size and sector of activity. SCADA software is the most suitable development environment for the easy and intuitive creation of complex SCADA applications.
SCADA applications provide several benefits, but having to highlight one in particular, we can say that they replace the man in carrying out many routine and tedious tasks, which increases productivity, provides a faster management of alarms and reduces the risk of potentially dangerous situations for the environment. More generally, we can say that SCADA applications:
