The IoT Enterprise Deployment Center’s goal is to create and share knowledge around the best practices for architecting, designing, and deploying successful, enterprise-scale Thingworx IoT Solutions.
To accomplish this goal, the EDC team takes a “real world” approach, using simulated IoT assets and users to benchmark the capabilities of different Thingworx deployment configurations. First, each implementation is pushed to its limit in an effort to establish real-world baselines, metrics which can be used to help customers determine which architecture choices will work for their custom needs. Then, each implementation is pushed beyond its limits, providing useful insight into where and why things fail, and illuminating potential implementation changes which could push the boundaries further.
Through the simulations testing to come, the EDC will be publishing the resulting benchmarks for all to see! These benchmarks will include details on implementation goals and performance metrics for different stages of deployment. Additionally, best-practice articles which illustrate how to deploy the different architectural components (those referenced within the benchmarks) will also be posted, highlighting the optimal approach to integrating everything into the Thingworx platform.
Stay tuned to see more about just how versatile the ThingWorx Platform can be! We look forward to discussing these findings as they are published right here on the PTC Community.
