PROSTEP is well positioned to accompany PTC's customers on this journey. One thing that attracted considerable attention in Boston was our demonstrator showing the integration of the IoT platform ThingWorx with PLM and ERP systems such as Teamcenter, Enovia or SAP. This lends support to PTC's vision, a vision in which PLM is only really able to provide end-to-end support for the product lifecycle when it is linked to the real world of the product.
More clearly than last year, PTC showed that it is their intention to continue to pursue the idea of end-to-end PLM with IoT. This was underscored by the event's slogan, "Physical and Digital Convergence", which is also reflected in PTC's new logo. At the same time, many products will be brought together under the ThingWorx brand: For example, Vuforia Studio is to be renamed ThingWorx Studio and PTC Navigate will in future be marketed under the name ThingWorx Navigate.
