Digital Transformation: Revolutionize Your Business

Digital transformation is creating a major opportunity for industrial producers and manufacturers to make the most of their operations. As global pressures for improved productivity and competitiveness continue to grow, companies need to find innovative ways to harness information that helps their operations and supply networks be more productive, flexible and sustainable.

Through connectivity and digitized processes, companies can gain access to actionable information and improve almost any aspect of enterprise performance. The Connected Enterprise makes this all possible. It converges plant-level and enterprise-level technologies so companies can access and capitalize on business, operational and transactional data for improved performance.

Rockwell Automation delivers digitization and The Connected Enterprise through a portfolio of integrated control and information solutions, including a network infrastructure based on a standard, open, single network architecture. This holistic approach helps facilitate secure interoperability

between corporate networks and industrial applications. It enables a wealth of information that can be converted into contextualized working data capital, delivering insights and creating new business opportunities for brand owners, OEM sand equipment builders.

With The Connected Enterprise, companies benefit from improved decision making and greater efficiencies, helping operations engineers profitably manage and improve

industrial processes, and IT professionals reduce network complexities and exposure to cybersecurity risks. It shares information with employees and partners across the organization and supply network in a context that is meaningful for each role.

Rockwell Automation works with global leaders – Cisco, Microsoft, Panduit and others – to take advantage of enhancing technologies, including cloud, virtualization, Internet of Things and mobility, and securely bridge IT and OT across the enterprise.
