Partnership aims to empower manufacturers with agility, intelligence, and scale to deliver digital transformation initiatives—from the cloud to the edge

 

MILWAUKEE, U.S. – Media OutReach – 7 October 2020 – Rockwell
Automation, Inc.
(NYSE: ROK) and Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) today announced
a five-year partnership expansion to develop integrated, market-ready solutions
that help industrial customers improve digital agility through cloud technology.
By combining each company’s expertise in the industrial and IT markets, respectively,
teams can work together more seamlessly, enabling industrial organizations to save
on infrastructure costs, speed time-to-value, and increase productivity.

 

Microsoft and Rockwell are working to deliver innovative edge-to-cloud-based
solutions that connect information between development, operations and
maintenance teams through a singular, trusted data environment. This will allow
development teams to digitally prototype, configure and collaborate without
investing in costly physical equipment. This unified information environment also
enables IT and OT teams to not only securely access and share data models across
the organization, but with their ecosystem of partners as well.

“Today, one thing we know for sure is
that no business is 100% resilient. Those fortified with digital capabilities
and assets are more resilient than others, and the cloud is how they will
thrive,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice president of worldwide commercial
business, Microsoft. “We are pleased to deepen our already strong, decade-long
relationship with Rockwell Automation to help businesses simplify industrial
transformation, accelerate business outcomes and innovate with agility.”

 

To date, the
companies have co-developed over 20 use cases across Food & Beverage,
Household and Personal Care and Life Sciences industries. The solutions
developed from this partnership will augment and enhance our current offerings.

“This partnership provides Rockwell Automation and Microsoft
customers with a holistic, simple solution for IIoT development and operations
and removes data silos that hinder industrial digital transformation initiatives,”
said Blake Moret, Chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation. “By eliminating a
core barrier to automation initiatives, industrial organizations establish a
digital thread connecting the entire enterprise, which in turn accelerates
innovation, maximizes productivity and optimizes operations.”

 

“Our team has seen the preview release of this new solution
and we are excited about collaboration between our strategic partners, Rockwell
Automation and Microsoft,” said Tristan Hunter, GM Automation & Operational
Technology at Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited, New Zealand’s largest
company and responsible for 30% of the world’s dairy exports. “Moving data from
our on-premise assets securely with context and providing new workflows for us
to analyze and drive better outcomes is important to maintaining Fonterra’s
high standards across our many plants globally.”
