Microsoft and Siemens have built a strong partnership over the years that supports digitalization, industry automation and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) as illustrated with their latest offering MindSphere on Azure.
MindSphere is the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens that connects your products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling you to harness the wealth of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) with advanced analytics.
MindSphere on Azure offers the best of both worlds —Siemens’ deep industry domain combined with the world’s fastest-growing cloud platform. Customers can not only securely and more easily connect any industrial IoT device and leverage comprehensive interoperable cloud services to quickly create powerful, scalable IIoT systems. They can also connect their applications and utilize Microsoft services (such as Power BI, Azure IoT Hub, and Azure Machine Learning) to scale and grow.
Ingo Oppelt, Microsoft global account executive and Birgit Gocht, Siemens MindSphere alliance director for Microsoft, spoke of the latest offering and partnership at SPS Drives. Watch their discussion here.
