Vantron Technology is a leading provider of low-power embedded system and software solutions to OEM/ODM customers. Vantron saw more and more customers looking for interconnectivity through the cloud so that they could access and interact with their equipment remotely. The rapid application development capabilities of ThingWorx were evident from the start, with Vantron’s engineers adding connectivity and completing the ThingWorx integration within 2-3 weeks.
With over 50,000 district and industrial steam facilities in the U.S, steam systems are one of the largest energy consumers in the United States, representing almost 15% of the country’s annual energy usage. Embedded Energy Technology (EET), based in Pittsburgh, PA, is on a mission to not only save energy but to also prove it.
Sysmex Corporation is a global manufacturer of blood and urinalysis medical equipment, selling to 48 companies in 29 countries. With ThingWorx, Sysmex was able to achieve next generation service and connected product capabilities, including direct, real-time instrument connection for delivering next-generation service and support.
Panasonic is leveraging an Internet of Things strategy to maintain their No. 1 position in the market for high-intensity projectors and winning in highly competitive, international markets by transforming their products into smart, connected devices.
Using an integrated solution from Glassbeam and ThingWorx has enabled Springpath to plan maintenance more effectively, minimize or avoid downtime, and better manage customer expectations
With the right strategy, industrial manufacturers can capitalize on the opportunity to generate business insights from data, capturing sustainable economic value.
Splunk was faced with the need to meet emerging customer demands for interfacing IoT projects to its suite of services. The company required an IoT partner that would be able to easily and quickly integrate with its Splunk Enterprise platform, rather than allocating development resources and time to building out an IoT interface and application platform. ThingWorx quickly built a plugin for its own platform that allows users to directly access all of Splunk’s big data analysis capabilities directly.
OnFarm needed to move quickly to capitalize on a significant “smart agriculture” opportunity to build connected applications and dashboards that captured and monitored sensors in the field and provided actionable data back to their customers. OnFarm relied entirely on ThingWorx’s extensive IoT development platform and ecosystem to quickly deliver on connected smart application capabilities.
Z-Farms is a large farming cooperative specializing in almond production. The cooperative consists of many acres of land at 5 farms throughout California. Data points stream into the Z-Farm databases by the minute. Z-Farm has been using reporting dashboards to make sense of the many data points monitored throughout the farms.
In 2013, LumenData found itself in need of adding new real-time predictive analytics capabilities to its suite of services. To meet this need, LumenData acquired a state-of-the-art streaming data, capture and real-time predictive analytics company. This solved the pure predictive analytics end, but left LumenData with a need to be able to build IoT-targeted services. LumenData determined that ThingWorx and its IoT development platform provided the exact complementary development services LumenData required to complete its predictive analytics suite of services.
IOTATOI (I-O-TA-Toy) provides a cost effective way to manage and coordinate all the disparate elements required for real time comprehensive monitoring. Prior to using ThingWorx, IOTATOI looked at using other companies, as well as building it in-house, “but these are complex challenges, and it’s expensive to create something in the first place, but even more expensive to maintain going forward” noted Minturn Osborne, CEO of Power Agent Systems, “We had developed the physical ability to connect all of the sensors and bring it into a centralized location. Thingworx gave us the ability to seamlessly scale that information, view the information from any location, push information to any location, and do some unique things that we were unable to do with our existing middleware.”
ABC Manufacturing is a large discrete manufacturing company with many facilities for which the fabrication of complicated components takes place. The manufacturer uses three large factories to produce many of the materials used in modern automobiles, satellites, and weather equipment. The components are expensive to produce and extremely detailed; if manufacturing equipment experiences downtime, needs unexpected maintenance, or produces product defects, the ramifications can be translated into significant losses due to poor production yield.
Devicify required a means to quickly build “connected IoT apps” without building a connected applications platform themselves, an expensive and time consuming option. Devicify engaged with ThingWorx, whose IoT platform is specifically designed to allow rapid design and implementation of connected device apps.
A regional managed care provider partnered with ThingWorx Machine Learning to detect patterns in data that would lead to better patient care and reduce costly readmissions for patients with Ischemic Heart Disease. The ThingWorx Machine Learning team worked with the regional care provider to deliver a solution that predicts high-risk patients and provides caregivers insight into why flagged patients should receive extra care across their care network.
By allowing All Traffic Solutions to easily build and customize user interfaces, dashboards and mashups, ThingWorx enabled the company to focus 100 percent on specifically meeting their customer needs. Using ThingWorx, All Traffic Solutions can customize its TraffiCloud ecosystem to meet specific customer requirements, and keep UIs clean and easy to use.
In today’s smart, connected world, companies are looking for any edge over the competition. DeviceLynk found an edge by developing an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution from the ground-up, creating operational efficiencies within a specified product, and giving their customers the ability to monitor the status of a field asset, building, or other infrastructure from miles away. By shifting their business strategy and partnering with ThingWorx, DeviceLynk is able to create its own innovative, full-service IIoT solution that sets them apart from the competition.
