Atos, a global leader in digital transformation and Siemens, a global technology powerhouse, today announce that they now deliver Private Cloud options for the MindSphere Cloud-based IoT Operating System, with the ambition to further accelerate their joint business cooperation in Digital Services and Digital technologies.

  • Enhanced application performance and landscape integration – with reduced latencies between the MindSphere environment and associated enterprise applications

    More generally, MindSphere offers:

  • Support for a wide range of devices, industry-specific applications and protocols - and advanced analytics
  • Innovative development environment based on Siemens’ open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) capabilities

Dr. Jan Mrosik, Siemens AG, CEO Digital Factory Division explains: “With this solution, enterprise customers get the best of the three worlds to drive their digital transformation with us: it links the global portfolio of the leading solutions of Siemens Digital Factory with Atos IoT-driven integration, infrastructure, consulting and security services for MindSphere and Microsoft Azure Stack technology.  Thanks to the preferred service agreement with Atos, once again we intensify our collaboration and will be able to further support our customers in developing robust industrial IoT solutions on a shorter timeline across various industries.”
