Enabling the Connected Enterprise

Enabling The Connected EnterpriseLearn how Rockwell Automation is enabling and implementing The Connected Enterprise in briefings with subject matter experts on the following topics.

To learn more about the five-stages of The Connected Enterprise Execution Model, download The Connected Enterprise Maturity Model White Paper [PDF].

Connected Information. Optimized Plants.

A key element to staying connected on the plant floor is the ability to transform data into insightful information to help transform your business. With today’s technologies and processes, plants are gaining competitive advantages by leveraging their data in new ways to improve the way their business operates.

Rethinking Automation Control Utilizing a Modern DCS

Manufacturers seeking plantwide integration and optimization are finding it through the technology offered with a modern DCS. This single, scalable architecture can replace disparate systems and configuration environments utilized in process, discrete, safety and power applications. We invite you to discover the unique characteristics of a modern DCS and its new enhancements, including embedded MPC within the controller, easier integration of power devices, and improved recipe management and security.

Secure Remote Monitoring and the Cloud

Industrial companies need to put contextual information in the right hands to increase efficiency and expedite decision cycles across the connected enterprise. To achieve this, operators, maintenance professionals and management need access to information from anywhere, at any time. Rockwell Automation is delivering remote-monitoring solutions utilizing the cloud to help bridge the gap between information technology and operations technology, and to help manufacturers unlock real-time data to optimize production and reduce downtime. Discover how these unique, secure remote-monitoring solutions are benefiting manufacturers across a variety of industries.

Safety and the Connected Enterprise

As manufacturing systems continue to become more connected, safety systems that share data throughout the enterprise create great benefits. Studies show that best-in-class manufacturers are using integrated safety systems to improve diagnostics and reduce unscheduled downtime. They’re also using open protocols to gain better visibility into the reasons for and frequency of events, and more effectively manage the massive amounts of complex safety data. Learn how safety data can be shared throughout the connected enterprise to improve employee safety and machinery productivity.

Building Machinery for a Connected Enterprise

As more end users realize the connected enterprise opportunity, they’ll turn to OEMs that understand it. Join us to learn how OEMs can create machinery that easily integrates into a facility and turns mined information into working data capital, driving business value for their customers and differentiating their own company more competitively.

Smart. Productive. Secure: Building the Architecture for the Plant Floor

To create a truly connected enterprise, manufacturers need production information that’s available across every platform and device in the organization. When used with the right network security strategy, this data helps improve operational efficiency and business performance. Learn how converging control and information systems allow manufacturers to build a connected enterprise with smarter machinery, enhanced design productivity, and improved security. As part of this conversation, you’ll also be among the first to hear about new design software and HMI hardware from Rockwell Automation.
