The Ironclad Design deployed at a very large utility in the North East is really impressive; a much-needed blue-sky approach… It is the first comprehensive Operations Technology design makeover actively deployed in the U.S. I believe that it provides the most secure fast-track path to migration off the old-legacy critical systems infrastructure; it is simply revolutionizing and decades ahead of its peer group in the U.S.
