FPT + Siemens for MindSphere Internet of Things (IoT) Operating System



The Internet of Things (IoT) as an emerging technology is at the core of numerous innovations, R&D and improved processes in our ever-connected data-driven era.

The momentum is on an exciting curve. The recent one involves FPT Corporation and Siemens AG through the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, upon which the two companies will collaborate in utilizing and implementing MindSphere, the cloud-based open IoT operating system from Siemens, for global customers of different sizes. 

For those who are unfamiliar, MindSphere is designed as an open operating system for industrial companies (e.g. machine manufacturers and plant constructors) as the basis for their own digital services, such as predictive maintenance or optimizing products and production processes by using digital twins etc. MindSphere is currently running on SAP HANA cloud platform, with plan in the nearest future to expand to other infrastructures like AWS and Azure.
