Siemens MindSphere on Microsoft Azure Private Cloud goes live
in Singapore MindSphere Application Center
- Solution allows deployment of industrial IoT applications in secure and private cloud infrastructure
- Users can optimize efficiency, availability and performance effectiveness of assets and processes
- Build modern apps with flexibility and control
Siemens and Microsoft are jointly bringing the offering of Siemens’ MindSphere on Azure Stack, a cloud-based, open Internet of Things (IoT) operating system, to customers in Singapore. This solution allows customers to deploy industrial IoT applications in a secure, managed private cloud infrastructure.
MindSphere connects products, systems, machines, and whole factories, enabling customers to harness the wealth of IOT data with advanced analytics. Microsoft Azure Stack brings the agility and innovation of cloud computing to on-premise, so organizations can build modern apps across their environment with the flexibility and control they need.
MindSphere on Azure offers the best of both worlds —Siemens’ leadership in Industry 4.0 combined with Microsoft’s fast-growing cloud platform. Now the two companies jointly bring this offering to Singapore, to help customers here to optimize efficiency, availability, performance effectiveness of their assets and processes.
Microsoft and Siemens have built a strong partnership over the years to bring leading innovations to customers that support digitalization and Industrial Internet of Things.
Steffen D. Endler, Head of Siemens IoT Digital Consulting in ASEAN notes, “We’re seeing high interest and adoption of private cloud across a number of sectors including manufacturing, utilities, critical infrastructure and healthcare. This makes perfect sense, as these sectors have some of the most stringent regulatory requirements and typically also some legacy systems. These customers, whose data cannot leave the borders of the country or even of the premises, but who nevertheless want to benefit from a proven IoT platform and want to utilize existing cloud-based IOT applications can deploy this with such an innovative solution.”
Siemens IoT Digital Consulting offers customers a one-stop contact for getting help with their digital transformation. From getting the IoT strategy right, to designing and developing the right prototypes that are able to scale all the way to an effective roll-out and transformation strategy, the newly established Singapore-based consulting unit supports its clients in Asia-Pacific to drive concrete business outcomes from the implementation of IoT in Cloud and on-premise or on the Edge across geographies.
Customers are invited to work with the Siemens’ MindSphere Application Center in Singapore to sharpen and validate their IoT ideas with the help of the Private Cloud MindSphere solution.
