Engineering and technology company Emerson has been named the ‘Industrial IoT Company of the Year’ by IoT Breakthrough for the third year running.
The accolade recognises Emerson’s commitment to helping customers in industries such as power, chemical, life sciences, and oil and gas define and execute a practical and successful path to digital transformation.
Emerson recently introduced a dedicated digital transformation business that combines Emerson’s sensing technology, operational analytics and broad services capabilities to deliver targeted digital solutions for customer challenges.
IoT Breakthrough, which received more than 3,700 nominations for the 2020 competition, recognises 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 IoT professionals, including journalists, analysts and technology executives.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) capabilities can enable a step change in performance, but many companies lack a clear path to get there.
A recent survey by Emerson showed more than 70% of companies do not have a vision for data analytics with a clearly defined roadmap to success.
“The IIoT space is crowded and can be confusing, so our goal 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.
James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough, said: “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.”
US-headquartered Fortune 500 company Emerson manufactures products and provides engineering services for a wide range of industrial, commercial, and consumer markets globally.
The firm has approximately 76,500 employees and 205 manufacturing locations worldwide, including a significant presence in the Middle East.
