Hear from the presidents of Control Engineering magazine top 3 picks for the 2011 System Integrators Of The Year at http://www.controleng.com/channels/system-integration/system-integration-news/single-article/video-meet-the-2011-system-integrator-of-the-year-winners/084106df39.html

Some good thoughts and considerations on the value of systems integrators, weather or not you agree with the importance they place on certifications.

Main points include:

  • Many client companies have turned their controls engineers into project managers with not enough time to implement projects.
  • system integrators can flex needed resources for particular projects or within a project throughout the project life cycle.
  • system integrators have a variety of specialized skills.
  • find a system integrators and leverage them over the long term to get maximum value.
  • develop CSIA (Control Systems Integrator Association) certifications that demonstrate skills to new clients.
  • system integrators should know how to manage risk and have tools/techniques for allowing reuse of code and techniques that save time.
