Emerson is to standardize its revamped Plantweb and connected services digital ecosystem on Microsoft’s Azure internet of things suite. The announcement was made at the recent Emerson global users exchange. Emerson is also to ‘broadly adopt’ Windows 10 IoT technology in its DeltaV and Ovation control systems and in data gateways into the Azure cloud. Azure IoT provides a ‘scalable and secure cloud environment’ for Plantweb.
Peter Zornio, chief strategy officer with Emerson automation solutions said, ‘Emerson and Microsoft have a long-standing relationship to deliver sensor-driven applications that run plant processes safely and reliably. The Azure IoT Suite and smart device-driven Windows 10 IoT devices will expand Plantweb to the cloud.’
Zornio added that Plantweb users can participate in Emerson’s recently launched ‘operational certainty’ program, which provides a ‘clear, scalable business case’ for investing in the IoT. The program targets the current ‘$1 trillion annual losses’ incurred by the oil and gas, chemical and manufacturing industries. More from Emerson.
