Emerson named IIoT company of the year for third time

February 2020 News

Emerson has been named ‘Industrial IoT Company of the Year’ by IoT Breakthrough for a third consecutive year. The honour recognises Emerson’s commitment to helping customers in industries such as chemical, life sciences, power, and oil and gas to define and execute a practical path to digital transformation. Emerson recently introduced a new, dedicated digital transformation business that combines Emerson’s leading sensing technology, operational analytics and broad services capabilities to deliver targeted digital solutions to customer challenges.

IIoT capabilities can enable a step change in performance, but many companies lack a clear path to get there. A recent survey by Emerson showed more than 70% of companies do not have a vision for data analytics with a clearly defined roadmap to success. Emerson’s new digital transformation business brings together critical resources, along with its existing expertise in consulting, project execution, smart sensor technologies, data management and analytics, to help manufacturers develop and implement pragmatic digital transformation strategies.
