Deloitte & PTC alliance signals new “value-driven” approach to driving IoT

New partnership aims to help enterprises build, deploy, & manage IoT Solutions

PTC and Deloitte have announced plans to co-create industry-specific Internet of Things solutions using PTC’s ThingWorx industrial IoT platform.

The partnership aims to enable clients to further the value from investments in IoT. The initial IoT solutions are designed to help transform industrial operations within manufacturing, oil and gas, and power and utilities, with the primary focus on the rapid deployment of condition-based monitoring, predictive maintenance, digital supply network and connected factory solutions. Additional focus areas will include retail and consumer products, healthcare, life sciences and smart cities.

“Systems integrators are one of our most valued channels for introducing ThingWorx to a broad range of customers and increasing adoption,” said Catherine Kniker, chief revenue officer, Technology Platform Group, PTC. “With its scale and breadth of services, Deloitte is an important collaborator as we continue our focus on developing innovative IoT solutions and bringing them to market for our customers.”

Speed to Market

Deloitte Digital’s industry issue-led and value-driven approach, along with its global network and service offering breadth, enable them to deliver on the promise of the IoT, say the company. “The industry-renowned ThingWorx platform from PTC enables our teams to rapidly connect machines, devices and sensors to form insights and corresponding actions that can deliver value and ROI in weeks, not months or years,” said Robert Schmid, managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP and chief IoT technologist, Deloitte Digital.

The alliance brings together Deloitte’s Digital Transformation Network, Digital Agility, with the enterprise-ready IoT development tools and capabilities of ThingWorx. Digital Agility leverages IoT technologies to address business transformation for any part of an organisation.
