Emerson, a known global technology and engineering leader was recently recognized by IoT Breakthrough for digital transformation strategies. IoT Breakthrough, which received more than 3,700 nominations for the 2020 competition, recognizes companies, technologies and products worldwide that set themselves apart in IoT categories ranging from industrial and enterprise, to consumer and connected home. Winners are selected by a panel of senior-level professionals experienced in the IoT space, including journalists, analysts and technology executives.
“The IIoT space is crowded and can be confusing, so the goal of this organization is to help customers achieve measurable business improvement through a focused strategy and relevant technologies,” said Stuart Harris, group president for Emerson’s digital transformation business. “This award reinforces our leadership with capabilities that are proven to deliver measurable results.”
Emerson helps to process, hybrid and discrete manufacturers maximize production, protect personnel and the environment while optimizing their energy and operating costs. To help customers realize the promise of digital transformation, Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem is highly scalable, enabling companies to focus on priority areas with a practical roadmap tailored to their business needs and readiness. This is critical because, according to the same Emerson survey, only 26% of respondents are scaling digital transformation pilots, hindering the potential of new technologies to enable wide scale improvement.
“The industrial IoT market is inundated with confusing promises and complex issues as organizations look to embrace innovation and new technology while leveraging their existing investments,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Emerson is ‘breaking through’ the crowded market as a true industrial automation leader by focusing on partnering with their customers from start to finish, helping them define and execute a practical and successful path to digital transformation. Emerson’s most recent developments open up the promise of IIoT to businesses that may otherwise not be able to navigate the digital transformation process, and we are proud to name Emerson our 2020 Industrial IoT Company of the Year.”
