"The company tells a strong story about the importance of digital twin."

Siemens was recently among the companies that Forrester invited to participate in The Forrester Wave: Industrial IoT Software Platforms, Q4 2019 evaluation. In this evaluation, Siemens’ MindSphere was cited as a Leader in Industrial IoT Software Platforms, having in the past year significantly grown its partner program and announced major new customer wins, according to Siemens.   

According to Forrester, “MindSphere builds on Siemens’ strength in industrial equipment and controllers but isn’t limited to interacting with Siemens hardware. The company continues to tell a strong story about the importance of digital twin, and MindSphere plays a key part in turning this vision into something pragmatic and implementable. MindSphere is well suited to customers with existing investments in the Siemens ecosystem but also deserves the attention of any industrial company interested in tapping Siemens’ deep domain knowledge and the experience it’s gained from its own internal digital transformation.”                                                                           

MindSphere is a secure and scalable industrial end-to-end solution, from asset connectivity to actionable business insights, that can increase productivity and efficiency across the entire enterprise, according to Siemens.

“MindSphere has continued to grow and strengthen over the past year, and we now have over 500 MindSphere partners including Microsoft, AWS, Arrow and Alibaba, which has helped fuel success in the Chinese market where we recently launched the partner program,” said Ray Kok, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Application Solutions at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “We are proud to be recognized as a Leader within the Forrester Wave report and will work to build on this momentum to continue to help our customers achieve their goals.”
