Many manufacturers have started (or are starting) their journey into the world of the Internet of Things, developing more and more smart connected products. However, they’re finding the journey to be bewildering, with a complex ecosystem of potential IoT partners and solutions. Within this crowded sphere of IoT providers, what can an organization do to make the decision-making process more streamlined and efficient?
To start, you can work with a market leader. Two industry analyst firms with the IoT market segment have recently named PTC the “IoT Platform Market Leader”:
Experton Group ranked PTC as “Market Leader” for Industrial Big Data Analytics
Both reports recognize the ThingWorx® IoT platform with its effective and easy-to-use rapid application development capabilities, the strategic investments on the part of PTC to develop a robust IoT platform, and PTC’s strong IoT ecosystem partnerships.
“PTC has spent over $600M in strategic investments to align their existing enterprise software business with future IoT solutions,” said Padraig Scully, vice president, market research, IoT Analytics. “The well-chosen acquisitions will enable PTC to develop an end-to-end IoT platform including connectivity (Axeda), application enablement (ThingWorx), analytics (ColdLight), augmented reality (Vuforia), and industrial automation (Kepware). PTC’s existing enterprise software business in CAD, PLM and SLM is expected to evolve into a closed-loop approach, integrating sensor data to improve product design and service.”
IoT Analytics and Experton Group ranking PTC as IoT market leaders further validates the strategy and direction that PTC is taking with IoT solutions. From thought leadership to technology to partnerships, PTC is focused on empowering its customers with tools and solutions to capitalize on the Internet of Things. PTC is bridging the digital and physical worlds to help create a new wave of connected products and services that will transform business and enable enterprises to accelerate time to value.
