In this day and age, more digital natives are popping up and becoming key contributors in the workforce, especially in the industrial sector. Armed with state-of-the-art technology and the foreknowledge of rising and falling trends, these tech-savvy individuals are ready to interpret the sea of data that can come their way. Spearheading this campaign of digitally transforming the industrial environment in order to create a more connected enterprise is Blake Moret, the CEO and Chairman of Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information solutions.
Joining the company in 1985 as a sales trainee, Blake Moret worked his way up the ladder and pioneered many innovations in his leadership. It is this personal experience that he learned the three major trends driving today’s industrial environment—the rise of the middle class in emerging economies, the growing need of more digital natives and tech-savvy workers who can quickly take the reins of any tool and system-dependent task, and globalization itself.
In the face of these three trends, Blake Moret and his company’s strategy into achieving a connected enterprise is to allow themselves to take real-time operational data, transform them into insights, and unlock another level of opportunity i.e. a digital transformation. This Connected Enterprise approach will help his company, and other companies get to market faster, lower total cost of ownership, reduce unplanned downtime, and manage enterprise risk and compliance.
While this digital transformation is integral for companies to exceed previously established key performance indicators, the data itself are nothing more than numbers. Without competent decision-making, forethought, and a means to translate the data into a more comprehensible format, then making customers more connected, productive, intelligent, and competitive would indeed be a challenge.
As time moves forward, so too must the tactics of individuals like Blake Moret and affiliations like Rockwell Automation, whose core revolves around connecting people and devices, studying and interpreting data, creating and polishing systems, utilizing advanced analytics, and optimizing processes. Ultimately, this is at the heart of Blake Moret and his organization. It is this objective that pushes them to help machine builders and end users become more effective and productive in their work.
