announced a new collaboration designed to make it simpler and quicker for

and sales designed to collaboratively meet fast-growing market demand.

the cloud, and the creation of applications for visualization and management of
that same data.

work with the best partners for customer specific development,” said Per
Simonsen, CEO, Telenor Connexion. “By working with ThingWorx, we are leveraging
the ThingWorx® industry-leading application development platform to drive

ThingWorx offers an
innovative platform for rapidly developing and deploying applications that
realize the opportunity and value presented by the Internet of Things economy.
