Moret speaking a the event

Rockwell Automation CEO discusses future of IoT

LONDON, May 25, 2017

Manufacturers and industrial operators are discovering practical ways to apply IoT across their operations and they are deriving measurable business value as a result, said a senior official from US-based Rockwell Automation at an event in London, UK.

Blake Moret, president and CEO of Rockwell Automation, one of the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information, today (May 25) spoke on Internet of Things (IoT) adoption and its impact on industrial productivity, at the Cisco’s IoT World Forum.

The official shared his insights with more than 1,200 business leaders at the event, said a statement from the company.

The company is uniquely positioned to understand the challenges and opportunities associated with harnessing the future of smart manufacturing, said a statement from Rockwell Automation.

As Moret described, the positive outcomes associated with IoT will continue to accelerate as organisations progress from pilot or proof-of-concept IoT projects to scalable IoT deployments.

According to the Global IoT Decision Maker Survey published by International Data Corporation (IDC), nearly one-third (31 per cent) of those surveyed have already launched IoT solutions, and another 43 per cent are looking to deploy solutions in the next 12 months.

Rockwell Automation is seeing a similar trend in its deployment of IoT solutions, and continues to increase its number of pilots across industries, applications and geographies.

Moret said: “Combining IoT technology and expertise in specific industrial applications enables better collaboration, faster problem-solving and increased productivity.”

He referenced several factors driving the adoption of industrial IoT and connected operations, including lower cost of computing and connectivity, and the convergence of information technology and operations technology.

Moret explained how a connected enterprise that adopts IoT technologies can generate better insight into industrial operations and deliver greater value by providing the right information at every level of their business through scalable analytics.

He cited Great Lakes Brewing Co. as a Rockwell Automation customer that is adopting scalable analytics to improve visibility and productivity for different parts of their operations.

“We have great technology, good people and a strong culture, but another component that sets us apart from our competitors is our ability to partner with companies such as Cisco,” added Moret.

“Together, we deliver expertise and solutions for highly secure, smooth connectivity from the plant floor to the enterprise network,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
