Water management companies can make major safety and control gains with Emerson's Zedi Cloud platform that quickly and accurately compiles data from any digital monitoring hardware via gateways that support a variety of protocols.

We provide end-users with a web interface as well as the ability to push data to third-party platforms, allowing remote control and optimization via cloud-based data access.

Leveraging the flexibility of a cloud-based SCADA platform enables you to capture unlimited amounts of data from any digital monitoring hardware and transmit it quickly to the appropriate personnel so they can access and analyze the data in real-time to make faster, more informed decisions.

Progressing with IIoT on the cloud

Posted by Julian Sanchez on Sep 23, 2020 1:15:00 PM

 

For many E&P companies considering field automation, it may seem that installing a SCADA system gives them all the information, alarms and control they need to reach the real goals, which include boosting production and reducing costs. And SCADA does help, but not nearly as much as installing automation through the Cloud.

In this ever-increasing digital world, people and companies rely more and more on the Cloud for data storage and integration. IIoT brings that missing piece where field data and process data can join the rest of your information on the Cloud.

Freedom to work from anywhere

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jun 18, 2020 10:52:00 AM

Way, way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I had a very annoying flip phone that was really only able to make and receive calls and (upon the rare occasion) get and send a few random text messages from other techie types. The main reason I found this phone so annoying is I wanted it to be able to do so much more; and it seemed like it shouldn't be all that difficult to make it happen.

But, that's all there was on the market at the time.

I continuously wondered why on earth someone didn't make them to fetch my email, or have a decent camera in them. Then it finally became a reality and just like that we all became more mobile than we had ever dreamed of being! It was AWESOME being set free from waiting for an email, and unchained from my desk where I would often be found waiting for information to be sent.

How the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) makes every day better

Posted by Community Contributor on Apr 12, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Updated May 4th, 2021

There has been much discussion through the years in many sectors of the economy around what the “Internet of Things” (IoT) can do to transform the way we work and live.  In brief, the IoT is about networking “things” like devices and even life-forms so that information may be collected from these things over time and form the basis for analysis and decisions.

IoT inevitably involves sensors, wireless technology of some description, a cloud to aggregate data, and analytics to create insights from this data.  Many people have encountered this business paradigm in their personal lives, whether it is through wearable fitness trackers (maybe you are counting steps, and then uploading that information to an App on your smart-phone or into the cloud), your internet-connected Emerson thermostat, household security system, or your smart TV.  These are consumer examples of the IoT phenomenon, and collectively are described as the wearables or Smart Home sub-segments.
