Entry deadline: March 15, 2013
The 2013 Control Engineering System Integrator Giants program recognizes the top system integrators from the industrial automation marketplace.
Control Engineering (CE) is looking for additional information about system integrators beyond the basics that are already collected for the Automation Integrator Guide. CE would like to know about the challenges system integrators are facing, the demographics and education of their staff, where their revenue comes from, and the kinds of clients they work for in the industrial automation marketplace.
Promotion for each firm
The results of the research will appear in the June 2013 issue of Control Engineering magazine (see page 77 from the July 2012 issue of Control Engineering for an example of last year’s magazine coverage). In addition to a statistical overview of the automation system integration market, CE will be presenting a ranked list of the largest 100 system integration firms around the world, which will be featured in print and available online (view last year’s rankings).
This is an opportunity for system integrators to gain a higher profile and to market their successes over the last year. If selected as a System Integrator Giant a firm will receive:
- Prominent, cover-story exposure to the 86,000 subscribers who receive the print edition of Control Engineering;
- Expanded on-line coverage on www.controleng.com that will be promoted to all e-newsletter and digital edition subscribers;
- An opportunity to contribute articles and ideas for future issues of Control Engineering; and
- Inclusion in a pull-out supplement highlighting the System Integrator Giants of 2013.

The 100 firms on the System Integrator Giants list represent the largest system integrators of 2012, from among the 2,334 in the Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide.
In the survey system integrator revenue is defined as automation integration services minus the cost of all off-the-shelf products: hardware, software, and equipment.
Sorting note: Where survey respondents indicated the same amount of system integrator revenue, respondents are listed alphabetically, as shown.
The System Integrators who responded to this survey provided information about engineering specialties, industries served, products integrated, associations/affiliations, and challenges from their industry.
System Integrator of the Year
Each year, a panel of Control Engineering editors and industry expert judges select the System Integrator of the Year Award winners in three categories (based on the size of the organization). Three general criteria are considered for the selection of winners: business skills, technical competence, and customer satisfaction.
