Rockwell Automation announced that it has acquired AVATA, a services provider for supply chain management, enterprise resource planning, and enterprise performance management solutions. AVATA has domain expertise in enterprise applications and is a prominent consultant and systems integrator for Oracle cloud software applications.
By helping to improve end-to-end supply chain visibility and management, AVATA, together with Kalypso, Rockwell Automation’s industrial digital transformation services business, will help to further increase the value of information technology/operational technology (IT/OT) convergence that Rockwell Automation can deliver to its customers.
