Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK), the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, has released a new report published by Frost & Sullivan. This report highlights the importance of comprehensive and complimentary lifecycle services, not only for maintaining optimum operational capabilities, but also for handling the complexities of digital transformation projects.
The executive brief, titled “The Opportunity of Lifecycle Services,” highlights the importance of lifecycle services, especially those that offer a detailed framework of support, tailored to each company’s precise needs. Such services are now more valuable than ever due to the pressures of national and international issues, coupled to the need for businesses to maximize uptime and evolve continuously.
The publication highlights LifecycleIQTM Services by Rockwell Automation and illustrates five core components and services that help empower industrial companies in their digital transformation journey:
- Consulting services look at the operational and business requirements
- Professional services deliver project management and implementation
- Connected services cover cybersecurity, OT networks and remote support
- Field services provide asset management and onsite support
- Workforce services deliver training and skills development
Partha Seshadri, Regional Vice President, Lifecycle Services, EMEA region, at Rockwell Automation, said, “It is a combination and balance of these services at all stages of a plant’s lifecycle that define and underpin their efficacy. They must also cover an ecosystem of varied technologies and brands. Rockwell’s LifecycleIQTM Services offers all of this.”
Digital transformation offers a multi-faceted approach to business improvement and is now seen as a strategic imperative for future operations. However, it presents operational challenges and introduces potential cybersecurity risks. But when properly identified and managed, these challenges are far outweighed by the operational benefits.
In the wake of the pandemic, industry will need to identify and define new objectives and priorities. The need for agility, innovation, sustainability, and flexibility in production has become essential, making digital transformation a top priority for all manufacturers. This is where lifecycle services present a great opportunity.
