Niagara4 is in its ninth release, so if you are aware of Niagara customers that still have a legacy platform deployed in their buildings, you need to let them know that they are missing out on powerful graphics visualization, provisioning, tagging, analytics enhancements, as well as on essential cyber-security upgrades and cyber defense features. Moving all your customers to Niagara4 will ensure that your deployments are in compliance with today’s enterprise IT standards. Niagara4’s enterprise customers are welcoming Niagara’s new Security Dashboard, for example.
Tridium has launched a series of incentive programs to enable our loyal Niagara AX customers to smoothly transition their deployments to Niagara4. We have the incentive programs, migration tools and support resources in place now for their smooth transition. We have designed these incentives to encourage all Niagara AX customers to act as soon as possible. Not only will these incentives expire, total costs for delaying Niagara4 migrations to beyond July 1st, 2021, risk being much higher, as AX software licenses will no longer be sold and replacement parts for AX-era hardware will no longer be stocked. Encourage your customers to upgrade their hardware now to the JACE® 8000 to keep their systems operable as they migrate to the latest Niagara Framework® release.

SUMMARY These incentive programs are only in place for a limited time. We hope you will do all you can to initiate your customers' migration this year because hardware pricing will never be more advantageous. Plus, your customers will avoid any AX end-of-life crunch and the risk of non-support. Most of all, they will be able to leverage all the powerful features and cyber-defense improvements built into Niagara4 sooner. Their facilities and cyber-defense teams will appreciate it! If you have any questions, please contact your Tridium account manager or Niagara partner. We look forward to you benefiting from these new programs this year!
