Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based Rockwell Automation has opened its first digital transformation experience centre in India.
The state-of-the-art, collaborative hub is designed to inform Indian businesses about creative ways to spark productivity gains using automation, according to a statement.
The Gurugram-based centre demonstrates the integration of key technology platforms for IT-OT (information technology- operational technology) convergence, enabling customers to understand benefits of the connected enterprise and the impact that it can have on their business. It also illustrates how solutions and services offered are entirely scalable and can be tailored to businesses.
“This is a hugely exciting time for a whole range of industries in India who stand to unlock trillions of dollars in value over the next decade as a result of rapid advancements in automation technology,” Blake Moret, CEO, Rockwell Automation said.
Visitors will have the first-hand experience to key technology platforms such as network, cybersecurity, industrial data centre, machine learning as well as AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality).
A visitor will be showcased how a business could fix problems faster and with less disruption to production by combining data on machinery faults, production commitments, and availability of parts along with insights into how long it would take a technician to fix the problem with the support of augmented reality.
The experience centre will also demonstrate how Rockwell Automation integrates solutions seamlessly from the plant floor up through the enterprise in collaboration with strategic alliance partners like PTC, Cisco, Microsoft, and Endress+Hauser to accelerate innovation and convergence for operational and information technologies through digital transformation.
“Using our technical expertise and industry know-how, we can demonstrate how we can help our customers maximise performance, advance innovation, and drive growth by unlocking new business models and adding value to existing products.” Dilip Sawhney, Managing Director, Rockwell Automation India said.
A team of Rockwell Automation domain experts will be on hand at the centre to demonstrate the transformative potential of the connected enterprise. Experts will use real-world examples, based on anonymised Rockwell Automation customer interactions.
Earlier this month the automation company launched its digital partner program to help guide and simplify the deployment of advanced digital technologies. Last year, Bengaluru-based software services provider Wipro announced a partnership with the automation firm to provide industrial automation solutions.
