About that asset management stuff...

Emerson and CSI showed some very neat stuff yesterday, and they are clearly doing a top down strategy for asset management. They are going after the high dollar, super critical monitoring applications, but they've shown now, with their partnership with other vendors, for things like corrosion detection, that they understand that the long tail of the market is in the smaller and simpler applications, not in the big expensive ones. It will take them time to get there, but they will. This is really cool stuff. Operators should love it. Maintenance managers should love it. Even the people who enjoy doing rounds because it gets them out of their boss's sights for hours should love it, because it even makes their jobs easier.
