PTC and Deloitte Announce Plans to Accelerate Internet of Things Adoption and Innovation for Businesses


(NASDAQ: PTC) and Deloitte today announced plans to accelerate Internet
of Things (IoT) adoption and innovation for customers using the ThingWorx®
industrial IoT platform
from PTC. Deloitte Digital and PTC are
co-creating industry-focused solutions 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."

Deloitte Digital's industry issue-led and value-driven approach, along
with its global network and service offering breadth, enable Deloitte to
deliver on the promise of the IoT. "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 organization.
