Working together to advance digitalization – to the benefit of all
Working hand in hand with 18 partner companies, Siemens AG is founding “MindSphere World”, a worldwide user organization for the cloud-based open IoT operating system MindSphere. Its aim is to expand the global reach of the ecosystem based on MindSphere. The organization is also designed to afford support to its individual members in developing and improving IoT solutions on the MindSphere platform and in tapping new markets in the digital economy. This will include suggestions about the requirements placed on the IoT operating system MindSphere by the industry and recommendations on setting out uniform rules for data utilization. Another role of the organization will be to promote science, research, and teaching in the MindSphere environment.
We are pleased to welcome Balluff GmbH to MindSphere World as a new member. The fourth-generation family-run manufacturer of innovative sensor, identification and network solutions operates worldwide and has its headquarters in Neuhausen on the Filder near Stuttgart. Digitalization is a major focus of its strategic orientation, as evidenced not only by the company’s latest acquisitions but also its joining of MindSphere World.
EOS GmbH, the world leader in technology for additive manufacturing with metals and plastics, is a perfect fit with the MindSphere World community thanks to its solutions for the digital factory of tomorrow. Now that it has joined the user organization, we can now collectively explore the opportunities and possibilities that digitalization offers to the future of industry.
The third new member to join our organization is Haas Schleifmaschinen GmbH. Its highly precise and economical grinding machines are used in the modern manufacturing operations of nearly all metalworking industries around the world. Industrie 4.0 and digitalization are also hot topics in the world of grinding machines because they can ensure a key role for this equipment in the production chain of the future. As a member of MindSphere World, Haas Schleifmaschinen GmbH has now established an ideal basis for this.
