Project Concept

This project will introduce the ThingWorx Data Model.

Following the steps in this guide, you will consider data interactions based on the user needs, specific user requirements that might need to be covered, in addition to considering modularity, reusability and future updates.

We will teach you how to think about a properly-constructed foundation, which will allow your application to be scalable, flexible, and more secure.
