Courtesy: Honeywell ProcesHoneywell (NYSE: HON) Process Solutions (HPS) has established a digital transformation business unit designed to help manufacturers harness the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and more rapidly deploy technologies that will allow them to better manage and analyze data, making their operations safer, more reliable and more efficient.

Andrew Hird has been named vice president and general manager of Honeywell’s digital transformation unit. Hird most recently served as HPS’s global vice president of sales and he has more than 20 years of industry experience, including 12 years with Honeywell. Hird said the company's knowledge of IIoT will help his division solve challenges by consolidating data in the cloud from multiple systems and provide higher-level analytics.

HPS’s IIoT solutions are designed to provide a simple method to capture big industrial data in a secure portal that can be scaled to meet the varied needs of single-site or enterprise-wide operations. For the refining and petrochemical industries, HPS will leverage the expertise of Honeywell UOP, the recognized world leader in inventing and licensing a wide range of technologies used globally to turn oil and natural gas into transportation fuels and petrochemicals.
