PTC Achieves AWS IoT Competency Status
PTC has announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT Competency status. This designation recognizes PTC's ThingWorx Internet of Things platform, which enables organizations to create IoT applications and generate business value for a variety of use cases, including intelligent factories, smart cities, energy, automotive, transportation, health care and more.

Achieving AWS IoT Competency status, the company reports, differentiates PTC as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that has demonstrated relevant technical proficiency and proven customer success, delivering solutions seamlessly in the AWS Cloud environment. To receive the designation, APN Partners must demonstrate deep expertise in the AWS platform and undergo an assessment of the security, performance and reliability of their solutions.

"PTC is proud to be one of the first APN partners to achieve AWS IoT Competency status," said Kevin O'Brien, PTC's VP of IoT partner sales, in a prepared statement. "The combined offering from ThingWorx and AWS delivers world-class ThingWorx IoT rapid application development, machine learning and augmented reality with AWS IoT cloud services, global scale and enhanced security. This enables customers to reduce the time, skill and investment needed to create IoT applications and generate business value."

The AWS Cloud enables scalable, flexible and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the IoT Partner Competency Program to help customers identify consulting and technology APN Partners with industry experience and expertise.

ThingWorx, part of PTC's Internet of Things technology portfolio, comprises a rapid application-development platform, connectivity, machine-learning capabilities, augmented reality and integration with leading device clouds, such as AWS. According to the company, these capabilities provide an IoT technology stack that enables companies to securely connect assets and quickly create applications.
