Global automation and technology leader Emerson has been named as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Company of the Year by IoT Breakthrough, an organisation that recognises top companies, products and initiatives within the industry.
Emerson has been named as such due to its extensive development and deployment of revolutionary IIoT technologies across a range of industries.
Particularly, IoT Breakthrough praises Emerson for the creation of its Plantweb digital ecosystem, a platform that gives its customers insight into both broader process automation and data that can help improve operations.
This includes a range of consulting services, helping businesses to construct a plan as to how to best implement IoT and other emerging technologies.
“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.”
The IoT Breakthrough awards received a total of 3,000 nominations in 2017, with Emerson having been selected as an industry leader by a judging panel of IoT professionals from a number of Fortune 100 companies.
