For asset owners interested in evaluating the OTbase asset management software before making a purchasing decision, Langner offers a PoC license that will give you access to most OT software components for 60 days. This offer is only for asset owners and is not free. If interested please contact us.
The PoC license allows you not only to check product functionality but also check out system and infrastructure related aspects, such as:
- user authentication using existing LDAP accounts
- suitability of existing server infrastructure
- suitability of existing networking infrastructure.
The third bullet point deservers particular attention. You may want to use the PoC for an estimate of deployment effort, especially when planning to use OTbase for multiple sites. Is your network architecture suitable for this? Which modifications must be made in firewall rule settings, and which effort is involved in these settings?
In other words, in an on-premise PoC, you are not just evaluating the functionality of OTbase, but also the cost of, and a potential roadmap for, deploying the software at scale.
