ThingWorx’s open IoT platform and rapid application development capabilities will be used by EPAM to complement its full end-to-end IoT service capabilities, from industrial design and low-level programming of connected devices to infrastructure, middleware, and integration capabilities.

“Innovative service and engineering companies like EPAM understand that every business could be an IoT business and, as such, are using ThingWorx technology to create new growth opportunities that pave the way for the next generation of industrial products,” said Rob Gremley, president, Technology Platform Group, PTC.
