Emerson, a global automation technology and software company, has been named the “Industrial IoT Company of the Year” by IoT Breakthrough. The award recognizes Emerson’s extensive innovation and leadership in driving Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and strategies for customers in manufacturing industries, including oil and gas, food and beverage, chemical, life sciences, power, water, wastewater and others.

Today’s industrial business challenges include fast-changing market dynamics, technical complexity and the relentless pressure to do more with less. To help overcome challenges, Emerson has harnessed the power of Industrial IoT 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 percent of industrial companies are exploring or investing in Industrial IoT pilot projects, but only 5 percent 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 toward the highest, Top Quartile operations and capital performance.

The IoT Breakthrough Awards, which received more than 3,000 nominations in 2017, recognize 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 comprised of IoT professionals and experts with hands-on experience within the Internet of Things market, including journalists, analysts and professionals from top startups and Fortune 100 companies.

“The Industrial IoT Company of the Year designation is a marquee award for our program as IIoT technologies and companies revolutionize manufacturing and entire industries,” said James Johnson, managing director of IoT Breakthrough. “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.

“We congratulate Emerson on their product innovation and industry leadership, and we are thrilled to recognize the company as a marquee 2018 IoT Breakthrough Award winner.”

Hannover Messe 2018

German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and Mexican President Peña Nieto set the tone on day one of the HANNOVER MESSE/CeMAT double-header. Asked to shake hands with a robot, they both went for the more casual fist bump – a symbol for the relaxed, natural interaction of humans with digitization, robots and machine learning.

"Technology is not about competing with us humans; it's about assisting us. That is the core message conveyed by this trade fair, which has again underscored Hannover's reputation as a global hotspot for the digital transformation of industry," said Dr. Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe, at the close of HANNOVER MESSE and CeMAT.
