Tata Consultancy Services and Siemens unveil a new collaboration around Internet of Things (IoT) innovation. Focused on customers in the manufacturing, energy, building technology, healthcare and railway industries, the partnership will reportedly enable customers to benefit from new data insights and services based on MindSphere, the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens.

According to Siemens, customers will benefit from new applications for MindSphere by TCS, enabling new digital and analytical services such as predictive maintenance and energy monitoring. Siemens and TCS solutions will reportedly allow customers to explore new models that capitalize on IoT innovation and realize opportunities presented by the digital economy.

The digitalization of industry - in which digital technologies are radically reshaping entire industries - is set to create significant opportunities for businesses around the world, according to Siemens. Initially the program will be focused in the manufacturing sector, where IoT has reportedly gained significant traction due to the immense data volumes generated in the production process, enabling major innovations in system performance and connectivity.

Through this partnership, TCS will also support developments around MindConnect Nano, the cloud gateway used to connect production to cloud-based analysis of machine and production data. In addition, the new partnership will see Siemens and TCS explore implementing the MindSphere core platform, including operation and support services such as application and infrastructure management as well as analytical and testing services.
