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:
- Access industrial IoT and application data from
on-premise web servers, off premise cloud
applications, and hybrid environments
- Eliminate issues with latency, cost, and security
using edge computing capabilities to collect and
aggregate data at the source
- Operationalize industrial data to extract actionable
insights within minutes via integration with
platform components and third-party systems
- Meet site security requirements with secure,
authenticated, and encrypted communications
across varying network topologies via SSL and TLS
