Digitalization & The Internet of Things

As the world becomes increasingly connected, digitalization – using digital technologies to transform business operations – is a key differentiator that will enable companies to remain competitive. Digitalization promises lower costs, improved production quality, flexibility and efficiency, shorter response time to customer requests and market demands, and also opens up new and innovative business opportunities. The digital enterprise is already a reality, and companies are pursuing its benefits and opportunities through digital transformation, which requires seamless integration of big data along the value chain. Initiatives like Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) are being driven by billions of intelligent devices generating massive volumes of data. Turning this data into value is a critical success factor.

What is MindSphere?

MindSphere is Siemens’ cloud-based, open IoT operating system that connects real things to the digital world, and enables powerful industry applications and digital services to drive business success. MindSphere’s open Platform as a Service (PaaS) enables a rich partner ecosystem to develop and deliver new applications.

Digitization, and the transformation of IoT data to productive business results, are core drivers of MindSphere. Valuable industry based applications built on MindSphere deliver measurable results and enable digital services that are based on best practice solutions. In addition, companies can leverage MindSphere to close the loop through product ideation, realization and utilization to seamlessly integrate operational data throughout the value chain – not only driving operational efficiency, but also comparing simulation and test results with real-world observations.

As part of a complete digitalization strategy, MindSphere enables new ways to solve problems and enables companies to consider innovative new business models.
