Let’s be honest, nobody exactly loves their electricity supplier. The service is impersonal, prices skew high and estimated billing is an antiquated practice in an age when we’re producing vast amounts of data. Sure, energy companies have done much to earn their bad reputations, but it’s also true that the system they’re dealing with has not evolved in principle since London’s Edison Electric Light Station first whirred into action in 1882: power gets pumped from a central point to a large number of users, with delayed feedback about how much is being used or when. It’s expensive, it’s inefficient and it’s fragile.

Our perception of smart “Things” needs to be “people-ified,” if you will.

PTC is making a big bet on the IoT opportunity. It wants to be in the forefront of helping organizations create smart products and services, systems and operations.

It also means quickly responding to changing customer and market requirements.
