Strategic partnership between Rockwell Automation and Cognite
Rockwell AutomationInc, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, and To know, a global leader in industrial data software, announced a strategic partnership to further unlock the value of manufacturing data and accelerate technology change for industry. The partnership combines Rockwell’s FactoryTalk software offering of next-generation industry-leading connectivity to plant assets, operations management applications and industry-ready analytics with Cognite’s leading industrial DataOps platform, Cognite Data Fusion, to create an industrial data hub ready for enterprise-scale scaling.
With one of the largest footprints in industrial automation, Rockwell products create and process data around the world. The partnership between Rockwell and Cognite will bring to market a single, unified, edge-to-cloud industrial data hub that makes operational, engineering, business, and visual data understandable and comparable for manufacturing across industries. The offering will transform raw data into high-impact applications for real-time decision-making and improved workflows that ensure safe, productive and sustainable operations. With Cognite’s proven success in the energy industry, this partnership will further strengthen the edge-to-business capabilities of SensiaRockwell’s joint venture with Schlumberger.
“Manufacturers of all sizes are struggling to access and profit from their data. A unifying clearinghouse can provide a single source of truth for all manufacturing data without major investment in costly proprietary platforms “, says Brian Shepherd, senior vice president of Software & Control at Rockwell. “The larger a company, the more difficult it is to bring together data from all the different sources and then get meaningful analytical insights at a price. Our partnership with Cognite will directly address these challenges.
