SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 4, 2015) - Glassbeam, Inc., the machine data analytics company, today announced that its collaboration with ThingWorx, a PTC business, has facilitated signing up a new customer along with several other prospects in the pipeline.

It enables customers to reduce the time, cost, and risk required to build innovative applications for smart, connected products. Glassbeam's proven IoT analytics as a service provides advanced machine learning and real-time analytics, taking in and analyzing data collected and stored inside the ThingWorx platform. Together these two solutions allow customers to reduce costs, increase revenues, and accelerate product time to market while improving customer satisfaction and retention.
VytronUS, one of the foremost clinical stage medical device companies, has selected the ThingWorx and Glassbeam solutions to collect and analyze machine data information from its systems.
"Machine connectivity and analytics is an important design element at VytronUS," said Danielo Piazza, Director of Engineering, VytronUS. "Having a well-integrated end-to-end solution for meeting this goal from ThingWorx and Glassbeam will make our job much easier in the future. It will greatly enhance our ability to get timely, accurate and insightful analytics from our machines in the installed base."
"Customers need the ability to derive new intelligence from data, and we're building out our certified partner marketplace to meet that need," commented Chris Kuntz, Vice President of Ecosystem Programs, ThingWorx, a PTC business.

Now, with the addition of VytronUS as a customer and active prospect discussions, we're excited about the possibilities created by this collaboration."
