Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and PTC have combined products in a bid to solve IoT data management and improve data decision making.
The tech companies will showcase a converged Internet of Things (IoT) solution based on PTC ThingWorx software and HPE Edgeline Systems. Designed for industrial use, the companies hope their solution will solve IoT data management problems and help businesses make better decisions from sensor data. The solution is currently in development.
IoT data management
HPE Edgeline Systems are network edge devices that should allow businesses to process data at the edge – i.e. on the plant floor – rather than waiting for the data to be sent back to a data centre or the cloud. It’s a solution HPE claims gives businesses better control of their “things.”
PTC’s ThingWorx IoT is a platform that PTC claims reduces the time and cost involved with building IoT applications.
In bringing these technologies together, HPE and PTC “expect” to create a hardware and software combination that includes sensors, edge compute, real-time edge analytics, machine learning and augmented reality. The aim being to make data management, and therefore decision making, easier by having everything you need for IoT ready in one solution.
“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, 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.”
Dr. Tom Bradicich, VP & GM, servers and IoT solutions, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, said: “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. 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.”
HPE and PTC will demonstrate an example of their combined IoT technology this week at IoT Solutions World Congress.
