Converging global forces are causing organizations to become more “digital” at a rapid pace to avoid disruption, drive efficiency, and capitalize on new opportunities. To gain the upper-edge on these looming forces, executing on an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) strategy is becoming invaluable to industrial enterprises. IIoT allows enterprises to connect their machines, devices, workers, facilities, and entire systems – resulting in differentiated products and services, improved operational excellence, and increased workforce productivity.

Backed by the market-leading, purpose-built IIoT platform ThingWorx, PTC has been helping industrial enterprises digitally transform their businesses for more than a decade. To that end, PTC has been named a leader in a new evaluation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) software platforms issued by Forrester Research.

The report, “The Forrester Wave™: Industrial IoT Software Platforms, Q4 2019,” evaluates 14 platform vendors within the IIoT space in the following categories:

  • Current product offering, including aspects such as connectivity, deployment, and security
  • Strength of the vendors’ strategies, such as partner strategy and commercial model
  • Market presence, as it relates to number of direct customers and connected devices.

The report recognizes PTC’s rich set of capabilities in the areas of design, manufacturing, service, and operations. “With a vendor-agnostic approach, industrial hardware, and many years of industrial domain experience, ThingWorx is a strong choice for companies with a diverse mix of equipment,” according to the Forrester report.

The report also notes PTC’s strategic alliance with Rockwell Automation. The partnership enables PTC to develop shared IT/OT solutions and has expanded PTC’s market footprint to new industries and geographies.
