Connect Industrial Devices and Systems | Developer Portal : ThingWorx

Guide Concept

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.
