PTC is a global provider of technology platforms and solutions that transform how companies create, operate, and service the "things" in the Internet of Things (IoT). The company's next-generation ThingWorx technology platform gives developers the tools they need to capture, analyze, and capitalize on the vast amounts of data being generated by smart, connected products and systems. The company's field-proven solutions are deployed in more than 26,000 businesses worldwide to generate a product or service advantage. PTC's award-winning CEO, considered an industry thought leader, co-authored the definitive guides to the impact of the IoT on business in the Harvard Business Review.

Microsoft Azure is a Cloud Computing platform and infrastructure created by Microsoft for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. Azure was announced in October 2008 and released on 1 February 2010 as Windows Azure, before being renamed to Microsoft Azure on 25 March 2014.

C3 IoT provides a full-stack IoT development platform (PaaS) that enables the rapid design, development, and deployment of even the largest-scale big data / IoT applications that leverage telemetry, elastic Cloud Computing, analytics, and Machine Learning to apply the power of predictive analytics to any business value chain. C3 IoT also provides a family of turn-key SaaS IoT applications including Predictive Maintenance, fraud detection, sensor network health, supply chain optimization, investment planning, and customer engagement. Customers can use pre-built C3 IoT applications, adapt those applications using the platform’s toolset, or build custom applications using C3 IoT’s Platform as a Service. Year founded: 2009

Azure supports a broad selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices. Using Azure, you can run Linux Containers with Docker integration; build apps with JavaScript, Python, .NET, PHP, Java and Node.js; build back-ends for iOS, Android and Windows devices. Azure cloud service supports the same technologies millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and Trust. It can easily be integrated with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and Encryption features — so your assets stay right where you need them.

Azure offers a comprehensive set of intelligent solutions for data warehousing, advanced analytics on big data, and real-time streaming.

Additionally, with Azure Stack, you can also bring the Azure model of application development and deployment to your datacenter. Azure hybrid cloud solutions give more IT options, with less complexity and cost. Because of this, it's one of the preferred available Cloud Computing services.

The Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced Data Science are rewriting the rules of competition. The advantage goes to organizations that can convert petabytes of freshly arrived and historical data to predictions – more quickly and more accurately than their competitors. Payoffs include better product and service design, promotion, and pricing; optimized supply chains that avoid delays and increase output; reduced churn; higher average revenue per customer; and Predictive Maintenance that avoids downtime for vehicle fleets and manufacturing systems while lowering service costs. To make sense of and act on the unprecedented volume, velocity, and variety of data in real time, companies are applying the sciences of big data, advanced analytics, Machine Learning, and Cloud Computing. Products themselves are being redesigned to accommodate connectivity and low-cost sensors, creating a market opportunity for adaptive systems, a new generation of smart applications, and a renaissance of business process reengineering. The new IT paradigm will reshape the value chain by transforming product design, marketing, manufacturing, and after-sale services. C3 IoT offers a new generation of smart, real-time applications, overcoming the development challenges that have blocked companies from realizing the potential of the Internet of Things. Proven in more than 20 enterprise-scale production environments, the C3 IoT Platform is PaaS for the design, development, deployment, and operation of next-generation IoT applications and business processes.
