Manufacturers Lead Digital Transformation Efforts Using PTC and Rockwell Automation Technology Suite

Strategic Alliance Marked by New Solution and Customer Adoption in a Variety of Countries and Industries

ORLANDO, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 5, 2019PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) and Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK) today announced from the 2019 ARC Industry Forum that in the last three months a dozen manufacturers across a variety of countries and industries have selected the FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, solution as part of their digital transformation initiatives. With the joint solution offering from PTC and Rockwell Automation, these companies are able to connect disparate factory systems and gain actionable insights into their operations.

These strategic customer wins validate the powerful strategic alliance between PTC and Rockwell Automation, which was announced just last year. For PTC, this represents new customers in previously untapped industry verticals, including food and beverage, mining, pharmaceuticals, and consumer packaged goods. The strategic alliance has also deepened the reach of PTC into growing geographic markets, including China, South Korea, the Middle East, and the South Rim. Lavifood, a Vietnamese company that provides fresh fruits, vegetables, and agricultural products to global markets, is one example of how this technology can be deployed to enable companies to make smarter, data-driven business decisions. In addition, Rockwell Automation has implemented FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, in several of its own plants.

“With the manufacturing industry at the forefront of IoT adoption, the strategic alliance between PTC and Rockwell Automation has enabled each company to add value and expertise to a simplified solution, breaking down technological barriers and driving digital transformation opportunities for manufacturers in geographic regions and industry verticals worldwide,” said Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC. “The early successes indicate the industry’s readiness and need for more complete IoT solutions, and as we look to the future, we are confident that our combined approach will have a long-lasting and positive impact on the industries we service.”

Launched in November 2018, FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, provides customers with an unprecedented ability to grab vast amounts of data from multiple data sources quickly, organize it, and add insights. It improves connectivity to operational technology (OT) devices on the plant floor, natively supporting the rapid connection of legacy and new industrial equipment. By merging this data with data from information technology (IT) applications and systems, decision makers can gain a complete picture on the health and performance of their operations from anywhere in the enterprise.

FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, demonstrates how PTC and Rockwell Automation are delivering on the promise of their strategic alliance. This solution is designed to help simplify digital transformation for industrial businesses,” said Craig Resnick, vice president, ARC Advisory Group. “It is an exciting time to be in manufacturing as IIoT helps modernize and revolutionize all levels of the manufacturing process – from the shop floor to the top floor. It will push manufacturers to raise the bar even higher throughout the remainder of this year and beyond.”

FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, will be demonstrated at the annual LiveWorx19® conference, held on June 10-13 in Boston. For more information, visit
