PTC announced that Frost & Sullivan has named PTC’s Windchill Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution, the Product Leader in PLM for Digital Transformation in Discrete Manufacturing, North America.
Windchill was recognized for its ability to enhance collaboration; its incorporation of innovative technologies such as IoT, augmented reality, analytics, and artificial intelligence; and for its inclusion of highly-configurable, out-of-the-box capabilities that are easy to deploy and that offer immediate value.
The solution enables manufacturers to better understand and leverage their product and enterprise data, including information gathered from smart, connected products and machines. With this information, customers can build and manage a digital thread that connects critical functions within their value chains.
PTC puts its customers on a fast track to achieving digital transformation by paying close attention to customers’ requirements, determining how to best partner with each organization on its journey toward digital transformation, and adjusting its solutions appropriately, said Frost & Sullivan.
In its evaluation, Frost & Sullivan highlights PTC’s ability to stay ahead of the latest industry trends, demonstrated by PTC’s combining key technology from its ThingWorx Industrial IoT platform with core PLM capabilities. One such example is the ThingWorx Navigate suite, which enables stakeholders across an organization to access PLM information from multiple sources, based on user-specific needs.
“PLM is a cornerstone of digital transformation, and this recognition solidifies our leadership in the industry as well as our continued commitment to innovation in PLM functionality, delivered to our customers through Windchill,” said Kevin Wrenn, divisional general manager, PLM Segment, PTC.
“We are proud to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the Product Leader in PLM for Digital Transformation in Discrete Manufacturing,” added Kevin.
