Emerson (NYSE: EMR) announced at the Emerson Global Users Exchange that it is working with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) to help industrial manufacturers realize the value of Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) with Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem and Connected Services, which is powered by the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite. Plantweb is designed to help customers leverage data, technologies, and best practices to improve reliability, safety, energy management, and overall operational performance across the digital enterprise.
Emerson is also adopting Microsoft’s Windows 10 IoT technology for its control systems and in data gateways, for local data processing, and to serve data to Azure IoT Suite. Emerson chose Microsoft to power its Industrial IoT applications for its comprehensive offerings that span the intelligent edge with Windows and the intelligent cloud with Azure.
The Azure IoT Suite provides Emerson with a scalable and secure cloud application environment as part of its Plantweb digital ecosystem. Plantweb provides the technology and service framework for Emerson’s Operational Certainty program, a strategic approach to help customers break free from stagnant financial performance through adoption of industry best practices and advanced technologies.
This is designed for companies in the oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, and other industries that use instrumentation sensors and communication infrastructure to power new applications to improve reliability, energy management, and safety. These applications will be easily and quickly deployable and have immediately quantifiable business benefits for industrial manufacturers looking for better operational performance.
