PTC expands IoT platform to support public device clouds

PTC has revealed that it is extending its ThingWorx Internet of Things (IoT) open platform initiative by supporting the industry's foremost public IoT device cloud offerings. In addition to offering its own device cloud service, the ThingWorx platform integrates with Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT, and will fully support Microsoft Azure IoT Hub in July.

PTC will pursue additional device cloud integrations for ThingWorx, which will allow customers to realise the collective range of services provided by these companies, including the availability of connected device data.

Device cloud services are becoming an integral part of the IoT landscape, used by enterprises to capture and analyse vast amounts of data from the 'things' in the IoT. One of the challenges for enterprises, to date, is that they want to invest more time innovating above the device cloud level, building applications that leverage the underlying device cloud data. PTC's integration of the ThingWorx platform with AWS IoT and impending integration with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub, along with future device cloud support, will allow enterprises to more fully leverage their cloud investments as well as mix and match their preferred combination of world-class components from a range of cloud providers and ThingWorx.

For enterprise customers, integrations with multiple cloud offerings enable several anticipated benefits. On one hand, enterprises and IoT-based service providers across industries are racing to build competitive IoT-based offerings. The ThingWorx model-based development environment, with pre-built integrations to major cloud platforms, will enable customers to accelerate development and time-to-market, providing an important competitive advantage.

On the other hand, the ThingWorx architecture remains open over time, giving companies the freedom to evolve their devices, clouds, databases, and enterprise systems as their environment and needs change. ThingWorx supports integration to existing systems and architectures, allowing organisations to extend current investments and expand more easily over time, the company said.
