Here at LEAP Australia, we already know how good the IoT and PLM tools from PTC are – Thingworx and Windchill – after all, we work with them every day! But how do they stack up when reviewed by completely independent third-party researchers such as Gartner, Forrester and ABI Research?
Well we’ve put together a compilation of the most recent independent assessments of IoT platforms and PLM that have been completed in the last 12 months – in each case, the criteria was wide ranging including objective measures such as:
– capabilities of vendor’s current technology
– installed customer base using their technology worldwide
– completeness of roadmap / vision, and
– ability to execute.
In each report, PTC’s IoT and PLM technology emerged clearly as a leader – ranked ahead in both it’s currently capabilities as well as the completeness of their forward-looking vision and ability to execute their planned roadmap.
Providing further context, Gartner reviewed the scope for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms as “a set of integrated software capabilities – these capabilities span efforts to improve asset management decision making, as well as operational visibility and control for plants, depots, infrastructure and equipment within asset-intensive industries and related operating environments.”
Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO of PTC is justifiably proud of the broad industry recognition that PTC is receiving for Thingworx IoT and Windchill PLM: “Earning the Visionary position in the first Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms, to us, reaffirms PTC’s leadership in the market and identifies us as the primary industrial platform provider to be working with. We feel that this Magic Quadrant validates our transformative technology and our leading vision for the direction of the Industrial IoT market.”
So if you’re as excited by this as we are, and not yet using Windchill or Thingworx in your business – we’d encourage you to get in touch with your local LEAP expert for an obligation-free discussion – after all, we are all operating in such a fast-paced, rapidly changing technological environment that you really need to ensure you’re getting the most current information to make a well informed decision!
