"For PTC the 5 buckets under which our solutions are organized include source, contextualize, synthesize, orchestrate and engage."

"You can literally get these IoT solutions deployed in an hour and build the extra apps required in a couple of hours or days and for companies doing more sophisticated things you can put together a capability in weeks."

"When it comes to the IoT platform side of things, companies will expect their software to work alongside or perhaps even be integrated with Thingworx and as such we do provide our technology stack so companies can embed it in their offerings." 

"Many IoT solutions are all brilliant ideas technologically speaking, ultimately what customers need to understand is what business value they are extracting and are they getting the best deal for the dollar."

"We're looking at how we can make the technology extremely easy for the analyst to consume to make it even easier for them to go on to solve those challenges"
