Unique Combination of IT and OT Software to Accelerate Customers’ Digital Transformation Initiatives; Joint Solution Featured at LiveWorx

BOSTON – June 10, 2019 – Today at LiveWorx19™PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) and Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK) today demonstrated the unparalleled value of their combined technologies, addressing the most costly and persistent challenges manufacturers face today. Enabled by FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, the companies’ solutions-oriented approach simplifies how manufacturers achieve business outcomes that transform operational processes, workforce productivity and efficiency.

Digital transformation, which uses new technology to spur innovation and creativity, has become imperative for manufacturers facing shifting customer expectations, uncertain global trade and cost pressures, and workforce shortages. Despite the many competitive advantages it can provide, less than 10% of industrial companies describe their own digital transformation efforts as a real success, according to LNS Research. Those who are successful have an expansive, company-wide scope and are deploying solutions that tackle broader challenges, like understanding true performance across facilities with different environments and systems or minimizing unplanned downtime across their organizations.

“Manufacturers today require a new way to approach pressing challenges. That’s why our combined Rockwell Automation and PTC solutions bring together transformational technologies and drive true business outcomes,” said John Genovesi, senior vice president, Enterprise Accounts and Software, Rockwell Automation.
