Companies Offer Complementary Technology Platforms.
ThingWorx, a PTC business and leading Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, and Telenor Connexion, a leading enabler of connected business solutions, today announced a new collaboration designed to make it simpler and quicker for companies to realize the promise of a smart, connected world. The two companies see this as the start of a long-term alliance that will accelerate the introduction of innovative new connected business solutions and services.
ThingWorx and Telenor Connexion share a common vision for how connectivity can transform a company’s value proposition by enhancing the entire solution deployment lifecycle – from design to operation to service. As a result, the two companies have kicked off a series of joint activities in areas related to product development, marketing, and sales designed to collaboratively meet fast-growing market demand.
For its part, Telenor Connexion established its Cloud Connect platform to make it easier for companies to get onboard the connected world by helping out in the design and development of the solutions and to handle operations over time. The company is building up an expansive partner network to support the deployment of sensor technology, the capture and communication of machine, device and sensor data to the cloud, and the creation of applications for visualization and management of that same data.
“Telenor Connexion prides itself on having the key building blocks to decrease time to market, and we work with the best partners for customer specific development,” said Per Simonsen, CEO, Telenor Connexion.
“By working with ThingWorx, we are leveraging the ThingWorx® industry-leading application development platform to drive innovation and meet the broad market opportunity before us.”
ThingWorx offers an innovative platform for rapidly developing and deploying applications that realize the opportunity and value presented by the Internet of Things economy. ThingWorx’s simplified and unified approach to IoT applications enables companies to iteratively innovate business processes significantly faster than conventional methods and tools, thus accelerating time to value, reducing cost and risk, and transforming how products, people, and systems connect and interact.
“For companies seeking to deploy smart, connected solutions today, their technology choices are disparate and disconnected,” said Russ Fadel, president and general manager, ThingWorx.
“We’re pleased to be working with Telenor to help integrate a complete, end-to-end solution that provides an easy entry point for companies that want to realize the full value potential of adding connectivity to their product and service offerings.”
