Streamline IIoT development with Eclipse and ThingWorx | Developer Portal : ThingWorx

With our ThingWorx enterprise-ready technology platform, developers are building and deploying smart, connected solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Through use of extensions created by an ecosystem of partners and developers, the ThingWorx platform provides the building blocks you can use to deliver new services or applications. The ThingWorx Eclipse Plugin acts as the structural backbone of these extensions, freeing you up to focus purely on feature development. Learn how to quickly and easily enable ThingWorx to utilize custom 3rd party APIs and make the ThingWorx Platform work for you.
