today announced a strategic alliance with CSC,
a global leader in providing technology enabled business solutions and
services. This multifaceted agreement allows the ThingWorx software
platform to be embedded into CSC's OmniLocation®
MachinEdge enterprise M2M solutions offering; enables cross licensing of
technology to ThingWorx; and provides CSC with the necessary M2M
application platform infrastructure to develop and deploy M2M solutions
for its customers worldwide. This broad alliance will result in
significant time to market savings for end customers and will spur new
innovations in the M2M location-based services market.
The knowledge and experience embodied in CS's consulting, industry
domain expertise, and Machine-to-Machine Center of Excellence ("M2M
CoE"), along with the power of the ThingWorx platform, will dramatically
reduce the cost and risk for customers in every stage of M2M maturity.
In addition, this strategic alliance allows M2M solutions to be
delivered that uniquely address the new area of M2M requirements that
encompass social, mobile, search, and collaboration-features that are
core to the ThingWorx platform and essential for market differentiation
in this increasingly connected world.
"After an extensive evaluation, we concluded that ThingWorx provides a
unique application enablement platform for building M2M and Internet of
Things solutions, and one that is complimentary to the direction of our
M2M strategy and is a perfect fit for our OmniLocation enterprise
visibility technology," stated Richard Tomredle, M2M CoE Chief
Technologist. "The MachinEdge solution will enable the delivery of
innovative applications that are much richer in functionality, in a
fraction of the time required with alternative approaches."
"We are pleased to enter into a strategic alliance with CSC," stated
Russ Fadel, CEO of ThingWorx. "CSC's global reach and M2M CoE, combined
with the ThingWorx platform, will speed the adoption of innovative M2M
applications in the manufacturing, energy, medical, and industrial
equipment markets. The acceleration of M2M adoption is self-reinforcing,
and will be a key catalyst for rapid growth in the emerging connected
world. Businesses in every phase of M2M maturity will benefit from CSC's
end-to-end solution delivery capability. In addition, we see this
alliance as further validation of ThingWorx's technology, representing
another milestone in the company's history."
