Success through data
CloudConnect enables you to transfer valid data from the field level to the cloud. Combined with other information and its evaluation, CloudConnect opens up completely new possibilities:
- Better product quality thanks to a big-data analysis of all relevant parameters
- Automatic process optimization thanks to the evaluation of movement data and the turnover rate of mobile assets
- Preventive maintenance – the evaluation of key machine and robot metrics to increase availability
With CloudConnect, you benefit from groundbreaking IIoT applications, regardless of the type of plant that you operate.
CloudConnect uses the open Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol. This established standard allows data to be transferred to MindSphere, the IoT operating system from Siemens, and to all common cloud platforms, including Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Oracle IoT, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Turn data into added value
Data is transmitted to the cloud where it can be analyzed in combination with information from other systems – from big data to artificial intelligence.
Predictive analysis of the relevant data identifies the need for maintenance at an early stage so that it can be properly integrated into processes.
Evaluation of all quality-related parameters helps identify new connections between values measured on the field level and achievable product quality.
A cloud-based analysis of capacity utilization ensures that all production resources are optimally used.
The basis for data analysis is the collection of information that is relevant and as complete as possible.
CloudConnect is the key to exploiting the benefits of digitalization in industry.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
