PTC announced that it has been named “Technology Leader in the Global IoT PLM Market” by independent research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan. The 2015 Technology Leadership Award recognizes companies that lead the development and successful introduction of high-tech solutions that have altered the industry or business landscape, and that have helped to shape the future of technology and its uses.
The Frost & Sullivan award is based upon independent analysis of two key factors — “Technology Leverage,” which includes innovation, creativity, technology incubation, commercialization success, and application diversity and “Business Impact,“ which includes financial performance, customer acquisition, operational efficiency, and growth potential.
The PTC Windchill® 11 PLM software exemplifies PTC’s commitment to PLM technology innovation. Enabled by the PTC ThingWorx® IoT technology, Windchill 11 integrates data from physical products, web-based resources, and enterprise software systems to enable increased access, insight, and value in a modern and easily consumable user experience.
