Johnson Controls has announced that it has been named the Industrial IoT Innovator of the Year from a field of 3500 nominations by IoT Breakthrough.
“It’s an honour to be recognised as a leading innovator in the IoT industry,” said Sudhi Sinha, vice president and general manager of Digital Solutions at Johnson Controls. “While we are constantly working to enhance our products and solutions to drive innovation, it is equally as exciting to see increased interest from organisations who share our vision of bringing together the physical and digital worlds through IoT and data-driven software solutions.”
Achievements that contributed to its recognition as IoT Innovator of the Year included Digital Vault; a digital cloud platform for ingesting, processing, analyzing, and managing building and related enterprise information; Enterprise Management an energy, asset, occupant, and tenant billing, management system that proactively analyzes building data across the enterprise.
Another key achievement, according to IoT Breakthrough is Connected Converged Security; a digital security platform that moves security from a reactive and investigative posture to a predictive and proactive posture by leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence on data coming from security sensor systems, enterprise IT systems, people systems, facility systems, event feed, weather and social media.
Next is Connected Equipment and Services, which allows customers to improve the reliability and performance of their equipment systems through predictive diagnostics and machine learning, while Central Plant Optimization (CPO) is said to be the world’s only solution that leverages leading model predictive controls to cost optimize facility operations based on future forecasting of HVAC asset performance, building load requirements, changes in weather or occupancy, access to alternate energy resources, and participation in demand response programs.
“Johnson Controls Digital Solutions works at the nexus of data and business, working with its customers to pull insights that allow for smarter buildings, increased efficiencies and new business value,” said Sudhi Sinha. “From using data from the customer’s own environment—building systems and external sources—to uncovering insights which solve challenges and most importantly, helping our customers achieve their business missions is our highest priority.”
