Rockwell Automation and Cognite form strategic partnership

Rockwell Automation and Cognite have announced a strategic partnership to further unlock the value of manufacturing data and accelerate technological change for the industry.

The partnership combines Rockwell’s FactoryTalk software offering of next-generation edge connectivity to plant assets, operations management applications, and industry-tailored analytics with Cognite’s leading Industrial DataOps platform, Cognite Data Fusion, to create an industrial data hub ready for enterprise-wide scaling.

The partnership between Rockwell and Cognite will bring to market a unique, unified, edge-to-cloud industrial data hub that makes operational, engineering, enterprise, 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 enhance the edge-to-enterprise capabilities from Sensia, Rockwell’s joint venture with Schlumberger.

“Manufacturers of all sizes struggle with getting access to, and value from, their data.  A unifying information hub can provide a single source of truth for all manufacturing data without a major investment in proprietary and costly platforms,” says Rockwell’s Brian Shepherd, senior vice president of software and control. “The bigger a company is, the harder it is to pull data together from all the different sources and then get meaningful analytic insights affordably. Our partnership with Cognite will directly address these challenges.”

Girish Rishi, CEO of Cognite, adds: “We are excited to partner with Rockwell Automation to expand their FactoryTalk offerings and further enrich the data central to their applications. Our mission at Cognite – to foster the development, operationalisation and scale of industrial Hybrid AI solutions – is echoed in this partnership. We look forward to working with Rockwell Automation to accelerate the industrial adoption of applied analytics and digital applications.”
