Cognizant and PTC Open New Center of Excellence for Connected Solutions

What does it mean to operate an industrial company in the Digital Era?

It means the lines between physical and digital continue to blur. It means customers demand more. Just-in-time manufacturing. The ability to customize outputs in hours, even minutes. Fast, streamlined delivery. Impeccable product quality.

Today's customers have ever more demanding expectations—and they expect digital integration. You must achieve more with less. How else to control costs? Use fewer valuable resources? Lessen the impact of customization on operations? And make better business decisions faster? 

For companies that effect this transformation smoothly and safely, it's the biggest opportunity of the age. That's why Cognizant and PTC have created The Center of Things—a new Center of Excellence for companies that need to transform into a digital/physical enterprise.  It’s a space for making the new art of what’s possible—Connected Products, Connected Factories, and Connected Things.



Located in the heart of Hyderabad’s technology district, The Center of Things is a dedicated space where Cognizant and PTC bring companies to see first-hand operational, pre-built industrial solutions that can power forward their enterprise's ability to engineer smart, connected things.

The Center is a place where Cognizant's IoT and product engineers and PTC’s specialists work with a team to simulate the combined value and capability of a manufacturing, energy, high-tech or life sciences industry use case built on PTC’s technology. It showcases accelerator frameworks for creating the “art of the possible.” The configurable fabrication space allows companies to get hands-on experience to innovate: ideating, designing and prototyping concepts.


Leading in the digital economy demands more than smart, connected factories. You need integrated, end-to-end connected systems and capabilities. From understanding equipment performance and monitoring facilities to gaining visibility into operations and predicting outcomes, you need to make critical business decisions based on real-time, contextual data.

Cognizant and PTC’s combined solutions enable manufacturers to glean mean­ingful data at every touchpoint of the value chain, allowing them to seamlessly monitor and manage assests, factories and products; operate and improve business processes; and better manage data to use real-time insights.

The result? A long-term opportunity to: accelerate the design and development of connected products that deepen relationships with customers; and start your journey in building an end-to-end connected ecosystem that drives synergies at scale.
