Siemens to Host MindSphere on AWS Platform
Siemens is all set to host its cloud-based IoT (Internet of Things) operating system, MindSphere, for the first time on AWS (Amazon Web Services). This helps in developing IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) solutions within a short period of time to customers across several industries, majorly to the defense, aerospace, energy, and utilities.
Mindsphere possesses a range of devices and enterprise applications that connect protocol options, analytics, industry applications and development environment. It further helps to utilize open PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) capabilities with access to AWS cloud services. With the help of these capabilities, the system also connects real stuff with the digital world along with providing digital services and industry applications. The open PaaS of the system allows a partner ecosystem in developing and delivering new applications. Siemens, however, is more focused on business-related solutions to help driving closed-loop innovation by deploying digital twins for production, products, and performance.
MindSphere gives companies, irrespective of its size and industry, the opportunity to participate in digital transformation. Siemens, with its valuable partners, has developed priceless MindSphere applications through rich APIs (Application Programming Applications). It also delivers digital services after collaborating with AWS. MindSphere, with the assistance of all these collaborations, offers a holistic set of IoT services and solutions fulfilling the needs of its customers and providing opportunities in building and operating digital services across MindSphere on the platform of AWS. However, access to the latest version of MindSphere will be available for Siemens' partners from 2018.
