Analog sets up sensor-to-cloud service context with ThingWorx deal

October 15, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
The two companies are to collaborate to offer a cloud environment for IoT applications, enabling users to, “sense, measure and connect in a superior sensor to cloud environment.”

ThingWorx, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, has announced it is working with Analog Devices to offer an integrated sensor to cloud environment using the ThingWorx IoT Platform.

The collaboration is designed to make it easier for customers to intelligently bridge the physical and digital worlds with technologies that sense, measure and connect. This collaboration, say the companies, will support the smart, connected product data’s IoT journey from devices and sensors to wireless communication to big data collection and analysis; the platform addresses IoT infrastructure challenges such as connectivity, communications and other foundational services, so that customers can focus their time and energy on creating IoT applications, the part that generates business value.

“Our vision in this IoT era is to help companies harness the power of the data generated from sensors in smart, connected products,” said Martin Cotter, vice president, Healthcare, Consumer and IoT, Analog Devices. “Through our collaboration with ThingWorx, we will strive to enhance our customers’ experience utilising the data provided to the ThingWorx IoT Platform to empower rapid, rich and interactive IoT applications, real-time dashboards, collaborative workspaces, and mobile interfaces quicker than ever before.”
