PTC and Rockwell Automation combine technologies to accelerate customers’ digital transformation initiatives.

Digital transformation, which uses new technology to spur innovation and creativity, has become imperative for manufacturers facing shifting customer expectations, uncertain global trade and cost pressures, and workforce shortages. Despite the many competitive advantages it can provide, less than 10% of industrial companies describe their own digital transformation efforts as a real success, according to LNS Research. Those who are successful have an expansive, company-wide scope and are deploying solutions that tackle broader challenges, such as understanding true performance across facilities with different environments and systems or minimizing unplanned downtime across their organizations.

“Manufacturers today require a new way to approach pressing challenges. That’s why our combined Rockwell Automation and PTC solutions bring together transformational technologies and drive true business outcomes,” said John Genovesi, senior vice president, Enterprise Accounts and Software, Rockwell Automation.

Since becoming strategic partners last year, the two companies have aligned resources, delivered the Factory Talk Innovation Suite, powered by PTC, and won new business in a variety of countries and industries.

“Our collaboration with Rockwell Automation enables industrial enterprises to overcome challenges and gain traction with their digital operations initiatives,” said Howard Heppelmann, general manager, connected operations solutions, PTC. “We are excited to continue offering solutions that streamline the convergence of digital, physical and human elements – all of which are key to helping our customers digitally transform.”
