Partnering to do Well, Partnering to do Good

PTC LiveWorx 2018 Event Brief

By: Daniel R. Matlis, President

Partnership was the key theme at LiveWorx 2018. At the event, PTC showcased five major partnerships to highlight the need to embrace Digital Transformation as it navigates the ever-increasing rate of change:

  • ANSYS partnership to augment simulation and modeling
  • Microsoft partnership to augment mixed reality and cloud
  • Rockwell partnership to align smart factory
  • SYSMEX to support improved patient outcomes through IoMT
  • Boston Children’s Hospital to do good for children on the Autistic spectrum

Under the leadership of Jim Heppelmann, PTC President and CEO, the company is shifting its culture to be PTC = Prepared To Change.  Heppelmann described PTC’s own transformation, shifting from perpetual licensing to a subscription business model as well as moving its global headquarters from Needham to the Boston Seaport.

Are Spreadsheet Wizards Doing Data Alchemy to Transform Your Data into Intelligence?

Bigfinite Brings a SaaS Platform that Uses Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to Capture Data in the Cloud via IoT Technologies

By: Daniel R. Matlis, President

Life-Science companies are obsessed with hording documents.  These documents are filled with meaningless data.

Axendia research shows that 85% of companies surveyed rely on document driven processes.

Much of these meaningless data are unstructured, untagged and untapped.  Data are spread across countless repositories. They are saved in PDF documents and spreadsheets, in portals, share drives and email systems, in ERP, QMS, LIMS, MES, and PLM in process control systems and historians, etc.

However, data, even Big Data, on their own are not enough.  What is needed is intelligence.  Intelligence can be applied to answering scientific questions about product or process changes and the potential impact to both the product and the patient.

Unfortunately, many Life Science companies are suffer from DRIPPPP_INATU_CLP_WaterDroplet_B

DATA

RICH

INTELLIGENCE

POOR

Data Alchemy is NOT the Fix for DRIP

Until recently, the challenge has been the ability to turn these vast amounts of meaningless data into actionable intelligence, while supporting compliance with regulatory requirements.

Magician PalladiumHistorically, transforming meaningless data into actionable intelligence required hordes of spreadsheet wizards performing data alchemy. Data alchemists would hoard, compile, purify, distill, and perfect vast amounts of meaningless data and turn it into quasi-actionable intelligence.  Often working with months old data, the job of a data alchemist is tedious, resource intensive and often non-reproducible.

What if you could throw your data into a qualified data lake and use every technology buzzword to transform it into actionable intelligence?

Can Big Data, AI, ML, Cloud and IoT Fix the DRIP?
