The key to success for any industrial IoT implementation is frequently determined by the extent of interoperability between the IIoT platform and the devices, systems, and processes throughout the enterprise.
The “things” that make up an industrial enterprise– factory equipment, machines, hardware, tools, assets in the ﬁeld – represent a rich source of valuable data that has remained largely untapped. IIoT solutions enable connectivity to things to access data – and then communicate that data back to the enterprise where it can be used, stored, or integrated into other applications and systems.
But connectivity in an industrial setting is often wrought with challenges, as many operations remain teeming with disparate or legacy devices and ad hoc systems.
Most businesses are not in a position to replace entire ﬂeets of equipment, and thus, seek out an IIoT platform solution to facilitate digital transformation in the enterprise.
The ThingWorx IIoT Solutions Platform connects industrial assets to derive data directly from devices, assets, and enterprise systems, providing a single source for industrial operations data. ThingWorx provides the underlying connectivity infrastructure essential to getting connected and scaling IIoT solutions quickly.
ThingWorx Makes It Possible to:
