Sixgill Joins PTC Partner Network to Simplify Sensor Data Handling for IIoT Innovation

By Ken Briodagh July 06, 2018

Sixgill, a company specialized in sensor data services for governing IoT assets, recently announced that the company has joined the PTC Partner Network as a Technology Partner making its Sense Universal Sensor Data Services platform available on the PTC Marketplace, enabling users to simplify sensor data aggregation for ThingWorx solution development.

Sense has been validated as ThingWorx Ready, enabling ThingWorx users to leverage Sense to simplify sensor data handling and avoid data ingestion pitfalls by holistically collecting and aggregating high-volume, high-velocity, time series data generated by industrial sensors.

Sense is designed to unify highly diverse data streams from any type of sensor data and provides organizations with a backbone system that solves the complex challenges of industrial sensor data handling. Sense increases the reliability, efficiency and value of sensor-informed ThingWorx solution development.

“By helping developers get crucial first stage data collection right, we’re ensuring they, and their organizations, realize the full, long-term benefits of sensor-informed applications,” said Phil Ressler, CEO, Sixgill. “We are particularly pleased to partner with a global, IoT-focused software company of PTC’s stature to foster new IoT value creation opportunities using sensor data.”

PTC Marketplace is a digital space where partners and customers can access exciting Industrial IoT tools, market-ready solutions, and promote innovative technology.  Rather than build from scratch, organizations use the PTC Marketplace to accelerate innovation by leveraging existing market-ready solutions and tools that help unlock the value of IoT-related assets such as sensor data. 

The Sixgill Sense platform complements and enhances existing IoT systems, while enabling developers to build new sensor-informed applications to exploit data available from exploding numbers of connected assets that include people, places and things. Sense is a backbone system that automates data collection, normalizes and classifies data, identifies “exception events,” automates response and powers task-specific applications.
