Moving forward in 2018 Schneider Electric will be continuing the process of decommercializing Vijeo Citect. As part of the ongoing process improvement strategies this decision is in line with their shift of focus toward simplifying the customer experience and continuing their investment in the Citect SCADA brand.
Logistics / Product impacts:
As of January 1st, 2017, Vijeo Citect part numbers have been inactive, but each part has an equivalent Citect part number. Also, all future licences will be fulfilled on Citect SCADA keys and there is no requirement to migrate existing licenses with Vijeo Citect keys since they are compatible with Citect SCADA 2016.
Please note: Citect SCADA keys are completely compatible with Vijeo Citect 7.30 and later versions. For Vijeo Citect version 7.20 and earlier there is a dedicated procedure detailed in Citect SCADA Brand Consolidation FAQs.
As communicated during the launch of Citect SCADA 2016, this consolidation reinforces the ongoing investment in their flagship Citect SCADA product whilst aligning their logistical practices with the migration of Citect ordering processes to OPA. The consolidation is also an effort to simplify the customer experience and eliminate the duplication of effort and costs associated with dual brand strategies.
