Wednesday, 10 January, 2018


Emerson, a global automation technology and software company, has been named the ‘Industrial IoT Company of the Year’ by IoT Breakthrough.

The award recognises Emerson’s extensive innovation and leadership in driving Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and strategies for customers in manufacturing industries, including oil and gas, food and beverage, chemical, life sciences, power, water, wastewater and others. Emerson has harnessed the power of IIoT for customers through its Plantweb digital ecosystem to enable broader process automation and deeper data insights that can improve operations. “As technology continues to evolve, customers are increasingly turning to us for help navigating the Industrial Internet of Things,” said Mike Train, executive president of Emerson Automation Solutions.

“Industrial IoT holds a lot of promise for manufacturers, but many struggle to identify the right strategies for adoption within their operations. Our job is to act as a trusted partner, helping customers develop the right business case, then implement scalable solutions that deliver measurable returns.”

A recent IndustryWeek survey sponsored by Emerson revealed that 60% of industrial companies are exploring or investing in IIoT pilot projects, but only 5% are investing against a clear business case for how to best implement the technology. To meet this need, Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem includes consulting services to help customers build the best business case, backed by a broad portfolio of Pervasive Sensing technologies, an extensive suite of analytical software tools, secure and robust data infrastructure, and expert services. Ultimately, these Plantweb solutions help customers increase plant safety, reliability and profitability to drive towards the highest, Top Quartile operations and capital performance.

The IoT Breakthrough Awards, which received more than 3000 nominations in 2017, recognise innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial, Smart City technology, Connected Home and others. Selections are made by a judging panel comprising IoT professionals and experts with hands-on experience within the IoT market, including analysts, journalists and professionals from top start-ups and Fortune 100 companies.

“With over 10 billion hours of wireless operations across more than 32,000 networks in 146 countries, Emerson is a proven wireless and industrial IoT leader. By providing digital intelligence to the entire manufacturing enterprise, Emerson is providing a comprehensive and streamlined platform whereas many Industrial IoT offerings are disparate solutions that quickly become complicated and cumbersome as they are patched together,” said James Johnson, managing director of IoT Breakthrough.
