PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced that it has been positioned in the Visionaries quadrant by independent industry analyst firm Gartner in its Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms1. According to the report, PTC placed highest for its ability to execute for the second consecutive year.
Gartner defines the market for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms as “a set of integrated software capabilities to improve asset management decision making and operational visibility and control for plants, infrastructure and equipment within asset-intensive industries and environments.”
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms is comprised of two axes – ‘ability to execute’ and ‘completeness of vision.’ Gartner’s ‘ability to execute’ evaluation criteria encompasses the robustness of the product or service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness and track record, marketing execution, customer experience, and operations.
“We are pleased to once again be named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms,” said Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC. “We believe that being positioned as the highest in ability to execute for the second year in a row underscores our commitment to IIoT and continues our trajectory toward being recognized as the definitive market leader.”
