Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has announced it has established a new business unit to help manufacturers harness the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
“Since HPS’s introduction of the modern automation control system, we have helped plants and manufacturing sites around the world use an increasing amount of data to solve customer’s productivity and safety challenges” said Vimal Kapur, HPS President. “As manufacturers are looking to take the next step to manage and exploit data across multiple sites in locations across the globe, our new business unit will be a focused resource to provide that expertise.”
Andrew Hird has been named Vice President and General Manager of Honeywell’s new Digital Transformation unit.
“Honeywell’s deep expertise in IIoT allows us to solve customer challenges by consolidating data in the cloud from multiple disparate systems, applying higher-level analytics and leveraging experts who are often physically remote from the customer site,” Hird said. “Honeywell is in a unique position of being the recognized leader in automation and control room solutions for a wide range of process industries, plus we have advanced knowledge in connectivity with OPC UA, cyber security and advanced software development.”
OPC UA is Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture.
