MindSphere – the Industrial Internet of Things solutionMindSphere is the cloud-based, open IIoT operating system from Siemens that connects your products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling you to harness the wealth of data generated by the Industrial IoT. MindSphere transforms this data into productive business results using powerful industrial applications with advanced analytics.
Australian MindSphere University LaunchIn the first-of-its-kind university and industry MindSphere partnership, Siemens and Swinburne University of Technology have joined forces, launching Australia’s first MindSphere demonstration and application centre in the University’s Factory of the Future. The launch acts as an extension of the $135 million PLM software grant by Siemens to Swinburne in 2017.
MindSphere already has over one million connected devices and systems worldwide and the demonstration and application centre will act to further highlight the potential of this IIoT system to transform data into usable information.
In his opening remarks at the launch, Siemens Australia CEO, Jeff Connolly commented:
“Data is being described as the oil of the 21st century. 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years and 5.5 million new ‘things’ get connected every day. However, the value is in being able to refine that crude data and turning it into usable business information. This requires sophisticated platforms that simplify and enable the process. It also requires skilled people coming through the system — which is what this facility and the partnership is all about.”
