Cloud apps

with global access to data

Cloud apps

MindSphere apps for production machines and plants offer advanced insights and analytics into machines and processes independent of their location. You can increase productivity, optimize machine service, and collaborate with other factories: Benefit from global data access to implement data-driven business models for OEMs and plant operators. And the best part: You don’t need to worry about performance, as the cloud infrastructure makes resources available on demand.

Edge apps

for local data processing
close to machines

Edge apps

When it comes to real-time processing of high-frequency data, the Siemens Industrial Edge system reveals its full potential. Interact with your machines, manage your whole inventory, or run complex models to monitor production and processes close to the system. As the apps run on a platform architecture close or at the machines, the data stays within your production floor.

Mobile apps

for fast reactions
and easy interaction

Mobile apps

To properly use the data, you first have to be able to access it. That’s why we’ve introduced mobile client apps that connect to a higher-level processing system, like MindSphere or Siemens Industrial Edge, allowing you to convert your smart device into a machine notification center or mobile performance monitor. Benefit from all the onboard features of your smartphone.

Data visualization

Achieve transparency on energy consumption and enjoy easy dashboarding

Performance Insight

Site-independent analysis of machine and plant performance

Performance Insight enables you to analyze and optimize the performance of machines and plants on the basis of current operating data. Define the key performance indicators and analyze the performance and availability in clearly laid out dashboards.
