Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, ThingWorx, and Telenor Connexion, an enabler of connected business solutions, have announced a new collaboration designed to make it simpler and quicker for companies to realise the promise of a smart, connected world.
The two companies see this as the start of a long-term alliance that will accelerate the introduction of innovative new connected business solutions and services.
ThingWorx and Telenor Connexion said they share a common vision for how connectivity can transform a company's value proposition by enhancing the entire solution deployment lifecycle - from design to operation to service. As a result, the two companies have kicked off a series of joint activities in areas related to product development, marketing, and sales designed to collaboratively meet fast-growing market demand.
For its part, Telenor Connexion established its Cloud Connect platform to make it easier for companies to get onboard the connected world by helping out in the design and development of the solutions and to handle operations over time. The company is building up an expansive partner network to support the deployment of sensor technology, the capture and communication of machine, device and sensor data to the cloud, and the creation of applications for visualisation and management of that same data.
Per Simonsen, CEO, Telenor Connexion. Said: "Telenor Connexion prides itself on having the key building blocks to decrease time to market, and we work with the best partners for customer specific development.
"By working with ThingWorx, we are leveraging the ThingWorx industry-leading application development platform to drive innovation and meet the broad market opportunity before us."
ThingWorx is said to offer an innovative platform for rapidly developing and deploying applications that realise the opportunity and value presented by the IoT economy. ThingWorx's believes its simplified and unified approach to IoT applications enables companies to iteratively innovate business processes significantly faster than conventional methods and tools, thus accelerating time to value, reducing cost and risk, and transforming how products, people, and systems connect and interact.
Russ Fadel, president and general manager, ThingWorx, said: "For companies seeking to deploy smart, connected solutions today, their technology choices are disparate and disconnected.
"We're pleased to be working with Telenor to help integrate a complete, end-to-end solution that provides an easy entry point for companies that want to realise the full value potential of adding connectivity to their product and service offerings."
