Eliminate data silos using low-code application development

By Justin Tuttle

Constantly-changing global markets and strict emissions reduction targets are forcing energy and utilities (E&U) businesses to become more innovative and responsive.

Despite needing smarter ways of operating, adopting innovation has not been easy as many E&U businesses have heavily invested in software tools for specific tasks and goals. Many of these tools fail to exchange information across the enterprise, creating data silos that limit event awareness throughout the lifecycle of assets and operations.     

Here’s the good news: Siemens’ low-code application development software helps your business eliminate these stifling, innovation-hampering silos. With our open-source low-code platform, non-IT workers from any department can quickly build applications to connect isolated information sources and unlock their insights.

Using a simplified visual development tool, anyone inside your E&U business can create sophisticated applications to connect isolated data sources with your capital assets. In addition to eliminating silos, you’ll empower workers across your enterprise to collaborate and quickly develop solutions for complex problems. Whether it’s for product design or process optimization, our low-code platform provides a collaborative environment for stakeholders to define requirements, incorporate feedback, manage deployments and monitor applications.
