In the evaluation, PTC has been lauded for successfully combining core PLM capabilities with its ThingWorx® IoT technology, enabling manufacturers to connect their product's operational data to the IoT platform. This allows product planning and quality teams to monitor a product's operational performance and work to improve their product's value, quality, and usability. PTC was also praised for its introduction of ThingWorx Navigate™ suite, a group of role- and task-based applications that enable stakeholders across an organization to access PLM information from multiple sources based on user-specific needs.
Windchill was also highlighted for its integration with PTC’s Vuforia® industrial augmented reality (AR) solution. Leveraging Vuforia, Windchill incorporates AR to share product designs – at full product size and in its physical context – with stakeholders to improve and accelerate the product development process.
The Quadrant SPARK Matrix evaluation examined PTC and six other vendors’ performance in the categories of technology excellence and customer impact. Performance in technology excellence was measured by several parameters, including sophistication of technology, technology application diversity, scalability, competitive differentiation, and industry impact. Customer impact was measured by factors such as addressing unmet needs, product performance, ease of deployment, and customer service excellence.
