This project will introduce ThingWorx Industrial Connectivity.
Following the steps in this guide, you will utilize this connectivity solution to save time and avoid the complication of modifying every remote device to natively talk to ThingWorx Foundation via Edge MicroServers, Software Development Kits, or REST API calls.
We will teach you how to connect disparate systems and devices in order to apply business intelligence and improve operations.

Things used in this guide
This guide requires both ThingWorx Foundation and Industrial Connectivity.
It assumes that you are utilizing the hosted Foundation server in combination with the downloadable Industrial Connectivity.
This guide could also be run through with the downloadable Foundation trial (as opposed to the hosted Foundation server), but some instructions could require modification.
