NEEDHAM, Mass. and BANGALORE, India – July 11, 2017 – PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) and L&T Technology Services Limited (NSE: LTTS) today announced the opening of a Center of Excellence (CoE) focused on Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) innovation at LTTS’ office in Bangalore, India. Popularly termed as Industry 4.0, the Industrial IoT Center of Excellence will demonstrate the promise of digital transformations for companies across the globe, and will showcase the technologies that make those transformations possible.
LTTS will equip the CoE with the entire PTC technology stack – from product design software through Industrial IoT functionality. The CoE will support LTTS’ advanced capabilities in the Industrial IoT space and will focus primarily on application lifecycle management (ALM), product lifecycle management (PLM), service lifecycle management (SLM), manufacturing operations management (MOM), and connected manufacturing. Customers visiting the space can experience new-age technology innovations to better inform decisions on initiating new IoT projects or further developing existing ones.
“This Center of Excellence will be a valuable way to show new and existing customers the potential for their digital transformations,” said Amit Chadha, President-Sales & Business Development & Whole-Time Director, L&T Technology Services. “To maximize the potential of the space, we needed proven technology, and PTC was the clear choice with its established solution offerings and robust Industrial IoT platform that complement our unique offerings in Digital PLM.”
PTC was chosen as the technology partner for the CoE because of the vast capabilities of its IoT technology, as well as its longstanding leadership and success with solutions such as computer aided design (CAD) and PLM. The full technology stack from PTC will be available in the CoE, from Creo® CAD software and Windchill® PLM software through the ThingWorx® Industrial IoT platform.
The CoE, which is expected to draw in an audience of global customers, will also feature new Industrial IoT solutions developed on the ThingWorx platform. Some of the prominent demonstrations on display at the CoE include digital twin models, situational awareness to improve plant productivity using PTC’s ThingWorx platform, and Digital PLM services that can improve the productivity of field engineers through dynamic updates of service data.
