And just as importantly, with our heritage in the manufacturing operations environment, we understand deeply the challenges and the opportunities represented in the myriad of use cases along this spectrum.
We know the genesis of the necessary data, how to extract it and create context for it, and then work through the appropriate analytics engines (yes, there are many to choose from) to solve a specific problem.
Just as important is the need to do this in a scalable and sanctioned, secure environment — whether it’s on the edge (in the automation controller, the chassis, in the control panel) or in the cloud (public, hybrid); whether it’s a point solution for one piece of equipment or across an entire manufacturing enterprise; and whether it’s a closed loop control algorithm or AI to optimize a production-related supply chain issue.
Come see us in the Microsoft booth (Hall 7, Stand C40) and engage Rockwell Automation in a scalable analytics conversation.
Together with our partner Microsoft, we can share with you our vision for analytics that both OT and IT can sanction and scale out and support.
