Kinex role-based applications are designed to unify data from enterprise systems and the sensored physical world, and deliver user information and insight in context to enable users to improve decision making and performance. The Kinex applications, built on the ThingWorx® Industrial IoT platform, will enable users to change how products are designed, manufactured, serviced, and experienced.”
