The top 5 most read articles online, from Jan. 7-13 for Control Engineering covered MQTT’s role as an IoT message transport, the 2019 System Integrator Giants, the SI as your partner, a yogurt plant improving their operations, and automating an existing manual valve. Links to each article below.

1. MQTT’s role as an IoT message transport

Messaging queuing telemetry transport’s (MQTT) role as an Internet of Things (IoT) message transport derives from its simple design, when it began as an industrial communicator for a pipeline supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.

2. System Integrator Giants 2019

Three new companies joined the 2019 System Integrator Giants list in a year when most of the world’s top 100 integration companies saw overall business growth.

3. The SI as your partner

Developing a long-term relationship delivers better solutions across multiple projects. Six critical criteria are highlighted.

4. Yogurt plant improves active culture, technology

System integrator helps Chobani streamline operations to provide more flexibility and efficiency.

5. How to automate an existing manual valve

Automating an existing valve instead of replacing it can save time and reduce costs.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, Jan. 7-13, for articles published within the last two months.
