ThingWorx announced availability of Version 4.0 of the ThingWorx Platform. This new version introduces capabilities that further reduce the cost, time, and risk associated with building machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications in markets ranging from manufacturing, energy, and food to medical devices, smart cities, smart grid, agriculture, and transportation, the company says.
Version 4.0 introduces the ThingWorx Composer, a unified HTML5-based development environment for building and deploying applications. With Composer, developers, IT specialists, and business analysts can model the connectivity, data storage, collaboration, business logic, and security required for connecting smart "things," and then use these elements to create interactive applications without writing code using the ThingWorx drag-and-drop Mashup Builder.
Other new features include integrated, context-aware search; device browsing for automatically adding edge devices to ThingWorx; an enhanced extensibility toolkit; new connectivity extensions to provide integration to M2M and industrial protocols such as MQTT, OData, OPC, Modbus, Zigbee/ZWave, and others; and project team development features.
