The internet of things worx

No, I’ve not forgotten how to spell works, I’m trying to be ‘clever’ in my title as yesterday I was a SolutionsPT and was introduced to ThingWorx and have come away excited by what it can do to help companies make the most of the data they are going to get from Telemetry & M2M, or the Internet of Things as it’s becoming popularly known as.

Companies such as the one I work for, Powelectrics, have some great hardware and data collection solutions that suits certain vertical markets. We also have great application understanding, proven and affordable technology and very credible application references. We can interface to ERP systems, as well as SCADA systems and Smart phone apps using things like webservices, and this gives us the ability to deliver solutions today that drive tangible benefits into the heart of customers businesses.

What we don’t have is the ability to join lots of data sources together and create meaningful data from it which is what we are going to need tomorrow. As the Internet of Things grows and users have more and more data to use then the need for solutions such as ThingWorx becomes greater.  That’s not to say ThingWorx won’t be of benefit to users today.

During yesterday’s presentation my mind was working overtime – I could see how ThingWorx would benefit Powelectrics immediately as we have data in different depositories, but perhaps more importantly I could see how it would benefit my clients and help them blend in legacy data collection services in with the new data collection services they have.

So, thank you SolutionsPT & ThingWorx for yesterday and for making the future even brighter for us “Internet of Thingers….”. I look forward to working with you on some projects in the near future.
