ColdLight Named to Philadelphia 100 for Sixth Consecutive Year


PTC (Nasdaq:PTC), a global provider of technology platforms and enterprise solutions to create, operate and service smart and connected products, today announced ColdLight is ranked #10 on The Philadelphia 100 list of the fastest growing companies in the region for 2015.

PTC acquired ColdLight, a visionary in machine learning and predictive analytics, in May 2015.

“The Philadelphia region is full of innovative, successful companies that are serving the community through consistent growth,” said Ryan Caplan, president and general manager, ColdLight, a PTC Business. “For ColdLight to be a Philly 100 winner for six consecutive years it validates the team, the technology and the services that are helping our customers. We are honored to once again be part of the prestigious Philadelphia 100 list for 2015.”

The Internet of Things unleashes a massive opportunity for organizations and solution developers to build intelligent application and systems to mine information out of raw data. To do this, a new generation of big data analytics tools is needed. The Neuron® technology from ColdLight enables developers to integrate automated advanced and predictive analytic capabilities into the applications and solutions they create without having to be a data scientist, expert in complex mathematics or a machine-learning expert. When Neuron is combined with the PTC ThingWorx® IoT platform, solution developers gain a powerful set of integrated capabilities that allow them to rapidly create holistic solutions for their IoT environments. These solutions can quickly be developed to tackle many challenges within the IoT world – such as predictive maintenance and manufacturing optimization.
