At this week’s IoT World Congress in Barcelona, PTC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced a planned collaboration to facilitate the availability of converged IoT services based on PTC ThingWorx software and HPE Edgeline systems.
The collaboration will focus on industrial use cases, incorporating PTC’s ThingWorx IoT platform technologies and HPE’s hardware and data services.
The planned collaboration is expected to result in the availability of a pre-tested hardware and software combination that will let users solve IoT data management problems and make decisions from sensor data more effectively. The collaboration aims to demonstrate complete hardware and software technologies specifically designed for IoT edge computing and smart, connections. These include sensors, edge compute, real-time edge analytics, machine learning and augmented reality.
“Companies working together to solve industry challenges is the fastest way to accelerate IoT innovation and bring about meaningful business value,” said Andrew Timm, chief technology officer at PTC. “Our work to date with HPE demonstrates what is possible when two leading IoT companies come together with a mutual goal of addressing some of the IoT’s foremost challenges and creating new IoT solutions.”
The demonstration at IoT World Congress built on technologies that are being featured at HPE’s IoT Innovation Lab in Houston, Texas, and at other industry events.
“The IoT promises access to immense amounts of pent up data which hold great insights that enable customers to accelerate business, engineering and scientific outcomes,” said Tom Bradicich, vice president of HPE. “The HPE Edgeline converged IoT systems coupled with Aruba connectivity and PTC’s leading technologies are a strong combination for unleashing these data and insights for our customers.”
