Intelligently linking and analyzing data with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)The industrial world is facing rapidly changing challenges. Our resources are finite, and we all need to do more with less. Digitalization and automation are the game changers to meet these challenges. It is essential to collect, understand and use the massive amount of data created in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The Digital Enterprise is doing exactly this by combining the real and the digital worlds. As a result, the infinite amount of data allows us to use our finite resources efficiently and with that make the industry more sustainable.
Make confident decisions
Combining the real and digital worlds becomes possible with our comprehensive Digital Twin approach. It enables integration of the entire product lifecycle with the factory and plant lifecycle, along with performance data. The result is a continuous loop of optimization, both for the product and the production.
The Digital Twin’s powerful combination of multi-physical simulations with data analytics in a fully virtual environment, the Digital Twin creates new insights. By examining "what if" scenarios and predicting future performance with the Digital Twin, you’re able to make confident decisions.
Combining the real and the digital worlds
Combining the real and the digital worlds makes it possible to seamlessly integrate the entire value chain from design to realization, while optimizing with a continuous flow of data. A true Digital Enterprise is able to harness the unlimited power of data by gaining valuable insights to make fast and confident decisions – and to create best-in-class products through efficient production.
In a true Digital Enterprise, there is balance between security and openness. In order to protect all the continuous, multidirectional data flows, we incorporate a multi-layered security concept at every step. At the same time, there is a seamless flow of data between stakeholders to achieve collaboration like never before.
Comprehensive Digital Twin
Working with our comprehensive Digital Twin makes it possible to integrate the entire product lifecycle – and if required – even the factory and plant lifecycle. The generated performance data captured in the physical world, enables a continuous and open loop of optimization for both the product and the production.
This comprehensive Digital Twin approach integrates all necessary components, even including a Digital Twin of the building, which you can use to optimize the performance and efficiency of your plant’s energy and physical infrastructure.
Following the Digital Threads
Digital Threads are the map for the digital journey based on specific business workflows. They digitally connect all tasks and processes of the entire lifecycles of product and production to solve the challenges. The Digital Threads provide digitalized processes and revolutionize the way products are developed, produced, and optimized.
The Digital Enterprise enables companies of every size and sector to integrate and digitalize their business processes with the Digital Threads. Companies can start with digitalization at any step, for greenfield and brownfield plants, and based on standardized and open interfaces.
Bringing together Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT)
The Digital Enterprise brings together processes that were previously separate. It breaks down traditional silos and helps bridge the gaps between software and hardware, IT and OT, shop floor and top floor.
This offers great optimization potential – including technologies such as artificial intelligence for predictive maintenance, precise condition monitoring and improved quality.

Information on COVID-19 for our customers and partners
Siemens is continuously monitoring all aspects of the Covid-19 situation and taking measures to protect its employees whilst still continuing to support customers.
MindSphere, the cloud-based, open Internet of Things (IoT) operating systemMindSphere is the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens that connects your products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling you to harness the wealth of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) with advanced analytics.
At Expo2020 Dubai, a new cloud-based app will support Expo 2020 Dubai in becoming a blueprint for future and has already connected part of the site’s infrastructure to the Internet of Things. The app is designed to digitally optimize Expo 2020 Dubai, enhancing the visitor experience and reducing energy and water use. Initially operating across two domains – environmental monitoring and irrigation – the app will collect, monitor, correlate and analyze data from the site, and visualize it to allow real-time monitoring and control of infrastructure from static and mobile devices.
