The honor recognizes Emerson’s innovation and leadership in driving Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and strategies for customers in manufacturing industries such as oil and gas, power, chemical, life sciences and others.
The IoT Breakthrough Awards, which received more than 3,500 nominations in 2018, recognize innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including industrial, smart city technology, connected home and others.
With IIoT capabilities, industrial companies have more potential than ever to collect real-time data. However, turning that data into actionable information and game-changing operational performance can be a complex process. To help customers implement IIoT technologies seamlessly, Emerson pioneered its Plantweb digital ecosystem, a scalable portfolio of technologies, software and services that enables performance improvement in production, reliability, safety and energy management.
“As IIoT technologies continue to evolve, customers are relying on us more and more to help them evaluate and implement digital technologies to show business performance and value,” said Lal Karsanbhai, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “Our goal is to deliver deep industry expertise and automation technologies that empower customers to leverage these capabilities and optimize plant performance.”
