You’re ready to see what it can really do, and it’s the same for digital technology.

That’s followed by creating a communications interface that sends the data to your office in real time.

Take the smooth road to ESG and fiscal performance

Posted by Amy Thibault on Oct 1, 2021 10:30:49 AM

Sometimes there are fears that ESG has to be counterproductive to the bottom line. You read about some organizations promising to blanket the globe with millions of carbon-capturing trees and realize that those trees are also absorbing a lot of capital. Investors may like the leaves in programs like that, but when those programs are fertilized with barrels of red ink, it’s suddenly not so appealing.

Fortunately there are ways to achieve both—and Emerson's Zedi Cloud SCADA Solutions can be a black-ink-producing, carbon-reducing and safety-enabling option for companies trying to achieve both.

Creating a digital workforce for your operations

Posted by Community Contributor on May 25, 2021 2:00:00 PM

The next wave of technological advancements is emerging. New technologies are expected to reduce the number of workers required to perform specific tasks while increasing demand for other skills.

Similarly, a digital worker is considered an individual that applies actionable data from digital technologies and services to make improved decisions, automate manual functions, increase productivity, or convert information into revenue.

Posted by Community User on May 20, 2021 1:45:00 PM

There's a new sense of confidence that companies can remain operational with improved efficiencies by employing digital tools, reducing costs, and acquiring the best assets. For a long time, companies kept operations going during challenging times by decreasing LOE’s, deferring maintenance expenses, divesting properties with higher costs, cutting production, laying off personnel. Instead of relying on these traditional methods, companies should instead focus on creating digital operations by installing IIoT software.

Operational data security lane

Posted by Amy Thibault on May 13, 2021 12:45:00 PM

Have you ever tried to give someone advice about something that was way outside of your expertise? I have made that error many, many times. When I make the error of an unsolicited suggestion on something (usually to my friends on subjects like fashion, hair styles or anything related), I'm occasionally told to "stay in my lane." It quickly sets things into perspective for me, and I retreat, with a smile, knowing they're totally right; I'm way, way, way out of my lane offering advice about a topic I clearly do not fully understand or have taken the time into learning enough about.

They're totally right, I should stay in my own lane.

When it comes to data security, you're busy, and we completely understand that making sure your operational data is secure may not be always top of mind to you, or your highest priority at all times. After all, the last thing most people have time for is to worry about the security of operational data, because well, they're already very busy making sure a million other operational decisions are made really well, promises kept, employees remain productive, all the while with goals and targets continuously being achieved, or even better; exceeded.
