The SAS open source software for streaming analysis will be included by Siemens in the MindSphere Internet of Things Platform (IoT). Analysis access is available for use by IoT cloud-based users, which can speed up the introduction of machine education and artificial intelligence in the IoT environment according to both parties. These solutions are expected to be available later this year. Siemens and SAS will collaborate to engage new and existing customers and enable almost real-time integrated IoT peripherals, beginning with streaming analysis. Companies focus on manufacturing, health care, energy suppliers and transport organizations, as well as in the field of intelligent towns.


MindSphere is Siemens ‘ open, cloud-based IoT operating system connected to the digital world by objects (‘ things ‘). The open platform as a service (PaaS) forms the basis for new business models such as preventive maintenance, management of energy data and the optimization of resources. MindSphere, therefore, forms the basis, according to Siemens, for new business models such as those for manufacturers who use their specific machine-and process knowledge, and to develop innovative customer-oriented applications, solutions, and services. For example, this enables them to monitor machines at various locations. Machine parks, for example, need to have limited downtime.
