    StudiesIn & PTC - what a match!

    StudiesIn, the end-to-end study abroad portal for Spain assisted already more than 6,000 international students in fulfilling their dream of studying abroad in Spain. StudiesIn helps international students with university selection and placements, legal procedures like visa and residence permits as well as other landing services around studying, like housing or insurance. Their mission is to create equal opportunities by empowering global talent. This desire and inspiration to support young talent derives from the academic and professional journey of the co-founder and CEO, Tom Miessen. Tom is from Germany and moved to Barcelona in 2016 to study an MBA with a specialization in Entrepreneurship at the European University in Barcelona. During his studies he joined PTC , an American software company, for an internship in business development. In an ever-changing digital technological world, PTC works together with customers and employees to help navigate and survive the competitive landscape. It does so by accelerating digital transformation across their products, operations, and workforce. PTC's mission is to give their customers and employees the “Power To Create” a better world as a team. During the internship Tom worked for PTC in their Barcelona and Munich offices. PTC provided a learning place for Tom to develop skills such as lead generation, cold calling, account management, client communication, building relationships with company stakeholders as well as internal pre-sales, sales, marketing, and partnership teams, and more. His master thesis written with PTC explored the topic of 'How the Internet of Things triggers technology companies into developing a framework to structure their partner ecosystem'. After his internship and MBA graduation, Tom joined PTC as a full-time employee in a business development role. He recounts his time at the software company in a young, dynamic, and familiar atmosphere. Working with colleagues from at least 15 different nationalities was an eye-opening experience which fostered cultural exchange and sensitivity. The working ambience at PTC empowers individual growth and implementing their employee's ideas. These facets enriched Tom’s experience at PTC and developed a unique skillset, which he later used to create the edtech company StudiesIn. In particular the multicultural environment and the emphasis on empowering others to grow have been instrumental in the success of StudiesIn. In 2023, the startup experienced its most successful year to date and has a projection of assisting thousands of international students with their study abroad dream in Spain next year. Tom’s story is an example of the journey of an international student that studied in a foreign country and went on to enter the labor market in a new environment. Networking and developing crucial skills with PTC have enabled him to eventually create his own company StudiesIn, which today creates similar opportunities to future students and young professionals. Focusing on their mission “to create equal opportunities by empowering global talent”, StudiesIn prepares its students for the academic as well as professional world in Spain and Europe. The strategic collaboration between PTC and StudiesIn provides important opportunities for international students to find internships, entry level and even senior level positions at PTC. Be sure to learn more about PTC and StudiesIn, whether you are a student looking for assistance or a professional who is passionate about empowering global talent towards making the world a better place.

    PTC Acquires pure-systems

    PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) has acquired pure-systems, a leading provider of product and software variant management solutions. Manufacturing companies use pure-systems’ pure::variants® solution to efficiently manage the different variations of software and systems engineering assets across their product configurations. PTC and pure-systems had partnered prior to the acquisition, and pure::variants is already integrated with and directly complements PTC’s Codebeamer® application lifecycle management (ALM) solution and similarly complements PTC’s Windchill® product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions. The addition of pure-systems is expected to support PTC’s leading position in the fast-growing ALM market, drive additional ALM growth, and enhance relationships with customers in regulated industries – including automotive, aerospace, and medical device manufacturers – which are increasingly prioritizing software in their product designs. “The acquisition of pure-systems adds important functionality to our ALM suite that is critical to manufacturers around the world,” said Jim Heppelmann, Chairman and CEO, PTC. “Manufacturers are increasingly turning to software to differentiate their products and to create different versions of their products to address the full range of customer needs. In particular, automakers that are investing heavily in software-defined vehicles require tightly integrated ALM and software variant management solutions to plan and deliver the different software configurations that power their range of vehicle offerings. We believe that the combination of Codebeamer and pure::variants positions PTC as one of the leading providers of software requirements, configuration, testing, and validation solutions in the market.” “The pure-systems team is thrilled to join PTC and continue supporting our manufacturing customers’ needs for software variant management solutions,” said Danilo Beuche, CEO, pure-systems. “PTC shares our focus on this critical need for companies that make complex, regulated products and on the importance of an open ecosystem approach. We are proud of what the pure-systems team has accomplished for our customers to this point, and we are excited to join PTC’s ALM group to continue to grow our position in this important market.”

    Defining Metaverse for Industrial Companies

    Over the last several months, the word "metaverse" has blown up across tech-oriented headlines, spurred in no small part by Facebook's Connect 2021 decision to rebrand as "Meta". Of course, much of the buzz has targeted the consumer (and the abstract), so many executives may be asking themselves: "What is a metaverse and what does it mean for my business?" In its simplest form the metaverse is an immersive, interactive medium where digital representations of people interact with each other and digital objects in a virtual space.  A metaverse experience can be almost entirely divorced from the physical world, allowing people from around the globe to engage with each other in fictitious environments, governed by software code rather than laws of nature.  For example, massive multiplayer video games like World of Warcraft and Fortnite represent primitive metaverses - complete with their own variety of activities, social interactions, events and even economies. WIth virtual reality (VR) technology, these and other metaverse experiences can become more immersive. Far richer metaverse instances leverage augmented reality (AR) and Internet of Things (IoT) technology to blur the lines between digital and physical experiences, with digital objects and avatars extending into physical space and vice versa.  Read more about it on our website through the link below!
