The new Siemens MindSphere IoT platform could put the Internet of Things within reach of many more companies
The open, cloud-based system offers customers a way to capture and leverage the data in their machinery. It’s designed to make the IoT connection simple and inexpensive. MindSphere’s initial applications, Visual Analyzer and Fleet Manager, connect industrial systems to the cloud for tracking and analysis. The company also advises clients on how to make the most of the system. This includes using its functions to pursue new business opportunities. Siemens has announced that it soon will allow outside developers to create apps for MindSphere.
