DESCRIPTION
Rockwell is a provider of industrial automation power, control and information solutions that helps manufacturers achieve a competitive advantage for their businesses. Rockwell operates in two segments: Architecture & Software, which deals in hardware, software and communication components of the organization, and Controls Products & Solutions that handles a portfolio of intelligent motor control and industrial control products, application expertise and project management capabilities.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread.

In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
