PTC Expands IoT Platform & Emerson on Launches Project Certainty [Roundup]

Emerson Launches Reversal Project

Emerson Process Management’s System and Solution business recognized the time, money, and effort wasted when organizations were reaching to meet their goals. Poor quality manangement is shown when billions of dollars are wasted every year on oil and gas exploration, gas processing, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and more industry specific processes. Emerson mapped out that nearly 65% of projects that spend $1 billion budget do not succeed. Furthermore, organizations that work on these projects exceed the budget by 25%, and 50% do not finish according to schedule.

Launching Project Certainty will help organizations prioritize and work more efficiently towards goals. This is done by engaging companies’ engineering and design planning in the early stages. By doing this, Project Certainty helps define project goals, and assists in spearheading strategies to achieve those goals. Emerson President, Jim Nyquist believes the software can help organizations reduce, and ultimately reverse, the wasted time and effort companies spent on expensive projects. “In order to achieve game-changing performance in project, it will take a truly transformative and comprehensive approach like Project Certainty,” said Nyquist.

The CEO of EMC, Joe Tucci, will retire his 15 year career with EMC upon the acquisition.
