  17. 17. Why Field Device Integration? Process automation end users are asking for a single solution  Current FDT and EDDL technologies with partial overlap cause competitive positioning  Current situation is confusing because of conflicting messages Suppliers face expensive development  Most suppliers are simultaneously part of ECT organization and FDT.  They must invest in parallel developments for EDDT and FDT.
