PTC and ANSYS partnered to accelerate the industry-wide move to bring engineering modeling and simulation to the Industrial IoT.
Just before the start of LiveWorx 2017, PTC’s annual mega-event around all things IIoT, the two leaders agreed to develop a solution that will let ANSYS engineering simulation technology be rapidly added to applications built on the ThingWorx Industrial IoT platform from PTC. Development of a connector between these two technology platforms will let customers transform raw data into new forms of actionable intelligence, the companies said. The connector will integrate intelligent digital simulation models with products as they exist and operate in the real world, the companies explained. The aim is to open up new opportunities for companies to create value by enabling them to optimize operations and maintenance and to integrate them into their product development processes.
