Automate business processes with the flow of information


ThingWorx Flow capabilities are suited for any use case that requires connecting ThingWorx to other enterprise systems and exchanging information between those systems.

ThingWorx Flow is simple to integrate, which dramatically reduces time and effort required to connect and interact with enterprise systems. Its visual, codeless environment enhances usability by enabling developers and business users to easily understand, modify, copy, and repurpose flows to meet evolving business needs.

ThingWorx Flow also uses intuitive design to wire data flows between connected systems, share data transparently, and define the information to be shared between connected systems.


These are tools that enable the execution of a rich set of common enterprise application capabilities in the context of ThingWorx Flow.

System-Specific Connectors

Provide users with a broad selection of out-of-the-box connectors for supported systems like Google, Salesforce and Microsoft Azure, and more.

Protocol-Based Connectors

Provide out-of-the-box connectors for systems that do not have a specific connector but support one or more protocols including SQL or HTTP.

Custom Connectors

Allow users to build a custom connector to a system using the ThingWorx Flow Connector Development Utilities. This option is good if neither system-specific nor protocol-based connectors will work. Users can create actions for custom connectors that enable support for specific use cases.
