Yokogawa launches IIoT services business unit

By Mary Page Bailey |

Yokogawa Electric Corp. (Tokyo, Japan; www.yokogawa.com) has  announced the launch of amnimo Inc., a business unit that will be tasked with identifying, developing, and offering services that can add value by leveraging the industrial IoT (IIoT) architecture currently under development by Yokogawa. The first of these services are scheduled to be rolled out later this year.

In November 2016, Yokogawa set up a new division on the U.S. West Coast, Architecture Development Division California, to develop a robust and flexible foundation for the provision of new IIoT services. Based on a collaboration agreement that Yokogawa concluded in February 2017, this division began partnering with Microsoft and other leading IT companies to develop a secure and easy-to-use IIoT architecture for customers.

The launch of amnimo Inc. to identify, develop, and deliver IIoT architecture-based solutions is one of the measures that Yokogawa is taking under its new Transformation 2020 mid-term business plan to enable its customers to achieve a transformation in their businesses. By simplifying their business processes, the company will be able to speed up decision making and respond promptly to swift changes in the market environment. Also, it is expected that this company will be able to build strong relationships with customers and partner companies in various fields by working closely with them to co-create IIoT technology solutions that deliver new forms of value.
