Through the partnership, the technology companies will embed SAS and open source streaming analytics into Siemens’ IoT operating system Mindsphere.
The new solution will provide a comprehensive, open-compatible AI framework for the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
This will help meet growing demands for IoT analytics with AI and machine learning capabilities.
These solutions aim to increase productivity and reduce operational risk through predictive and prescriptive maintenance as well as optimised asset performance management, for example.
“SAS is a recognised world leader in advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. We are excited to leverage their analytics in MindSphere,” said Stephen Bashada, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Siemens MindSphere.
“The combination of Siemens’ deep industrial domain knowledge with SAS’ deep analytics knowledge is a powerful step forward for IoT.”
The solutions are expected to be available later this year and will benefit customers working in a range of industries including manufacturing, healthcare, energy, smart cities and automotive.
Peter Pugh-Jones, Head of Technology at SAS, added: “Siemens remains unmatched when it comes to revolutionising operational assets, software and processes. Siemens is committed to digitising the world’s industries and provides a unique platform for IoT to realise its full potential through AI.
“This partnership can accelerate adoption of the transformative value of IoT for our customers.”
