InfluxData, an open source platform built for metrics and events that empowers developers to build next-generation IoT, analytics and monitoring applications, announced on Tuesday that it has joined the PTC Partner Network.
Joining the PTC Partner Network and integrating its platform with the ThingWorx industrial innovation platform will enable InfluxData to simplify the developer experience for IoT developers using the ThingWorx platform, allowing them to deliver their applications and solutions faster.
As part of the PTC Partner Network, InfluxData will be discoverable and accessible via the ThingWorx Marketplace, making it easier for developers to discover and use InfluxData’s time series data platform in their IoT applications. This will allow developers to easily store, analyze, and act on IoT data in real-time.
ThingWorx customers can use InfluxData to build monitoring, alerting and notification applications for ThingWorx-connected devices and sensors; IoT applications supporting millions of events per second, providing new business value around predictive maintenance and real-time alerting and control; and real-time analytics applications that are focused on streaming data and anomaly detection.
InfluxData has rapidly built its developer and customer base across industries – including manufacturing, financial services, energy, and telecommunications – by delivering the fastest growing Open Source Platform that enables customers to derive better business insights, data-driven real-time actions, and a consolidated single view of their entire infrastructure – from applications to microservices, and from systems to sensors.
“Fundamentally, all sensor data is time series data,” said Brian Mullen, VP of Business Development at InfluxData. “Any meaningful IoT application should be accompanied by a data platform built specifically for that purpose. With this in mind, we are excited to partner with PTC to make InfluxData more compatible with the ThingWorx industrial innovation platform. We are solving the time series data challenge for IoT developers so they can focus on their primary objective of building applications.”
“One of the goals of the PTC Partner Network is to assemble a lineup of helpful, specialized tools that enable customers to accelerate the development of their IoT applications,” said Kevin O’Brien, SVP, ThingWorx Partner Sales & Alliances, PTC. “We are excited to welcome InfluxData to our program. They share our focus on the IoT developer experience and we look forward to working with them.”
Over 350 customers, including Cisco Systems, Coupa Software, IBM, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Nordstrom, and Tesla, have selected InfluxData as their modern data platform for metrics and events. InfluxData is pioneering the shift to time series in a modern metrics and events platform, and is making it possible for customers to become data-driven and take on digital transformation initiatives.
