Siemens MindSphere Partner

Siemens Corporation’s MindSphere is a cloud-based operating system. MindSphere utilizes the cloud infrastructure to satisfy a company’s requirements to optimally use large volumes of data created by the Internet of Things.

MindSphere provides a budget-friendly, scalable platform as a service (PaaS) solution for app development. The software, created as an open OS for the IoT, enables manufacturers to enhance their performance by recording and analyzing massive amounts of performance data.

MindSphere provides a stable platform for Siemens and third-party supplier programs and services such as predictive maintenance and resource management. Users can deploy MindSphere as a platform to incorporate their own apps and services.

MindSphere’s Industrial Benefits

To create its unique platform, MindSphere employs a variety of cloud delivery strategies. Let’s now dive a little bit deeper and explore the benefits of MindSphere for all industries.

Accurate Monitoring

MindSphere is a pre-packaged solution customizable to your client’s needs. MindSphere helps businesses boost their asset health and performance by providing valuable insights enabling them to take proper corrective measures, solve problems, etc.

Predictive Analysis

The capacity to undertake comprehensive root-cause analysis to uncover the underlying sources of production issues is among its main industrial benefits.

Effective Digitization

Designing and developing digital twins is an effective strategy for gaining insight into a company’s operations. This MidSphere service streamlines the development of IoT apps to strengthen an organization’s digitalization strategy and utilize intellectual property.


Siemens has not stifled innovation, nor has it prohibited others from using such a platform. MindSphere also provides a complete development toolkit, allowing users to create third-party apps perfectly compatible with MindSphere and its connected applications.

MindSphere’s open cloud, open IoT platform serves as the foundation for a sophisticated IoT OS that includes data analytics and connection capabilities and tools for developers, apps, and services. 

Benefits of Deploying Siemens MindSphere

Siemens provides a cheaper version of MindSphere named MindAccess IoT Value Plan that includes basic apps for asset access, installation, monitoring, and administration for novice businesses as far as industrial IoT.

By linking assets and building database systems for asset evaluation, the Asset Manager function allows firms to model the complete mechanism of an industrial operation. Plus, the “smart templating” features allow MindSphere to configure an entire batch of assets.

In addition, users can rely on the Fleet Manager function to monitor, organize, visualize, and receive alerts. Businesses can utilize these tools to find particular assets and performance details, monitor critical metrics, and establish rules that generate alerts when certain conditions are fulfilled.

The MindAccess IoT Value Plan also includes advanced features, such as the ability to form groups, grant permissions and designate roles. Moreover, the package contains a smart data usage monitoring program able to adapt its performance consistent with existing capacity.

The MindSphere platform (where several companies sell add-on apps), is a great place to seek and find additional features.

MindConnect, one of MindSphere’s most popular products, provides companies a wide range of options for linking multiple machines, facilities, and global distribution fleets. MindConnect Nano is a plug-and-play solution that receives input from an industrial asset and sends it to MindSphere while ensuring its security.

MindConnect includes a number of connectivity tools, such as the MindConnect IoT2040 or MindConnect Nano, which gathers data from assets and delivers it to MindSphere. The MindConnect Nano provides a better data transfer capability.

In addition to previous add-ons, there’s MindConnect IoT. This is a protocol-agnostic integration component enabling almost any vendor with an IoT-ready device to connect to MindSphere. The MindConnect API also helps companies organize connectivity agents for their particular purposes.

The whole point of MindSphere is to enable maximal interconnection whereby the vast majority of data may be transmitted without interruption. Siemens has made this a reality by utilizing open-source standards and interfaces, enabling data collection from sources such as Simatic PLCs, Modbus RTUs, and other sources simple.

Businesses can create subscription-based apps based on MindSphere and offer them to clients directly or through the MindSphere marketplace. companies can determine their own price and billing strategy.

In line with MindSphere’s partnership program, these businesses can gain rewards and tools for participating in the company’s development program. Developers have access to the MindAccess DevOps Plan to create apps locally using any coding app or language and then transfer them to the cloud. The open-source platform is utilized to develop and deliver applications.

Last year, Siemens acquired the low-code app development solution, Mendix, for $730 million, which made IoT app design much simpler. Now, months after the takeover, Mendix has been seamlessly integrated into MindSphere, allowing users with minimal coding skills to develop applications for the platform.

Mendix’s system includes a visual drag-and-drop feature, along with collaboration tools and an artificial intelligence platform for development recommendations.

In addition to Mendix, the MindApps Fleet Manager is provided for functions like predictive maintenance, energy data processing, and other similar tasks. These applications allow users to connect, manage, and adjust the settings of industrial assets. Engineers can also utilize Visual Analyzer to assess the impact of specified data on production volume and quality.

Siemens is developing a variety of applications to assist companies with a range of issues such as resource utilization and continuous real-time monitoring, among other things.

With the MindConnect Integration feature, Siemens hopes to make it simple for businesses to centralize their data in MindSphere. Companies can use MindConnect Integration on-site and in the cloud to transfer data from a wide range of systems such as enterprise resource planning, production monitoring, data control and acquisition into MindSphere.

This is because MindSphere supports many protocols and adapters on-site and on the cloud. The solution consists of ready-made integration settings and a graphical interface for transferring data values into MindSphere to facilitate integration.

“We are a Lube manufacturing Company and we have implemented SAP Business One with the help of IMTS team. It has benefitted us in a lot of ways. Before implementations we were unable to get sales data, purchase data from various depots we have around the India, due to ERP system, now we are getting all the data and can access it from anywhere on the click of a button. I would like to thank IMTS for their extended support and implementation of SAP in our organization.”
