IoT Solutions
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an evolution of existing technologies that enables end users to improve processes, drive productivity, and maintain an edge in our increasingly competitive global economy. The IIoT requires technology that can solve the interoperability challenges of device connectivity by reliably and securely delivering data across the public domain at a much larger scale than previously thought possible. Interoperability is currently the greatest challenge facing the Internet of Things (IoT), and may be the missing link to implementing and realizing the value of many IIoT deployments. Kepware’s industry-leading communications platform, KEPServerEX, delivers the most complete solution for device-to-cloud interoperability. KEPServerEX provides a single integrated platform for collecting, aggregating, and providing secure access to your industrial operations data. KEPServerEX is evolving with the IIoT to support platform independence and new methods of data access—including support for web-based technologies and publish/subscribe messaging protocols. Kepware is developing these solutions to help the IIoT deliver on its promise of improved operational efficiency through applications like preventative maintenance, energy monitoring, product lifecycle insights, and global production tracking.

The ThingWorx Technology Platform was built from the ground up for the Internet of Things. It contains the most complete set of integrated IoT-specific development tools and capabilities available, offering the industry’s deepest functional capabilities. ThingWorx makes it easy to develop and deliver powerful IoT solutions that deliver transformative business value. Specifically designed for innovators looking to quickly deliver to market enterprise-ready IoT solutions, ThingWorx is supported by the most powerful IoT-focused ecosystem in the market and the industry’s only IoT Marketplace for off-the-shelf extensions. ThingWorx is the purpose-built IoT platform that enables rapid creation of complete applications for the smart, connected world. Its unique Thing Model framework allows it to seamlessly integrate with other technologies, including Augmented Reality (ThingWorx Studio) and Industrial Connectivity (Kepware).

PTC has the combination of IoT solutions, smart, connected support, and customer success services to help your company achieve maximum value at every step of its transformation. ThingWorx loT Platform ThingWorx speeds the creation of high value IoT applications that support manufacturers' strategies, such as predictive maintenance and system monitoring, and enhance PTC's existing ALM, PLM, and SLM solution portfolio. Axeda Machine Cloud Axeda provides the most advanced cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and machines and implementing innovative Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Coldlight (Neuron) Coldlight's Neuron Predictive Analytics Platform uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to automatically analyze data, detect patterns, build statistically validated predictive models, and send information to virtually any type of application or technology. Vuforia AR platform PTC’s Vuforia AR platform empowers innovators and developers in the industrial enterprise to build immersive AR experiences that transform the way users create, operate, and service products in the smart, connected world. ThingWorx Studio ThingWorx Studio - an AR offering for the Industrial Enterprise. ThingWorx Studio combines the power of Vuforia with the ThingWorx IoT Platform, offering new ways for the industrial enterprise to create, operate, and service products.
