MindSphere is Siemens’ industrial IoT as a service solution that enables you to collect, analyze and visualize machine data and discover actionable insights. It takes the analysis and insight development to a new level with the closed-loop digital twin, analytics at the edge, streaming analytics, and low-code development.
MindSphere brings the entire digital twin concept full circle. With the ability to collect live performance data during production and product use, users achieve a closed-loop digital twin that allows them to immediately update simulations and apply near-real time data to operations to improve production rates and product quality. As a hybrid cloud and edge solution, data can be continuously streamed, processed and analyzed at the edge for critical decision-making, or sent to the cloud for more robust analysis and storage. Uniquely, MindSphere offers scalable solutions, allowing companies to get started quickly while tailoring their IoT projects to their specific business needs by using ready-made applications, or by building or enhancing their own applications.
