SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — ioTium, the first commercially deployed Software-Defined Converged Infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced that the Company has joined Siemens’ MindSphere Partner Program as a Gold Partner. The MindSphere Partner Program is Siemens’ partner program for Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) solution and technology providers. As a Gold Partner, ioTium can work to accelerate the adoption of Industry 4.0 in industrial enterprises leveraging MindSphere.
ioTium’s vision for Software-Defined Converged Infrastructure solutions for IIoT is based on the learning that both flexibility and simplicity are equally important in approaching Industry 4.0. Organizations must combine elements of security, network, and edge computing in a multi-tenanted, scalable and open way to realize their deployment.
“ioTium is capable of delivering tremendous value to industrial enterprises through its Software-Defined Converged Infrastructure solutions for IIoT along with rapid, scalable deployment of MindSphere,” said Paul Kaeley, senior vice president, global partner ecosystem at Siemens PLM Software. “Together we can help joint customers rapidly realize the benefits of Industrial IoT with MindSphere, and create a completely closed loop decision environment for continuous optimization and improvement.”
MindSphere is the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens that connects products, plants, systems and machines, enabling businesses to harness the wealth of data generated by the IoT with advanced analytics. The ioTium Software-Defined Converged Infrastructure solution for IIoT is the fabric that connects legacy brownfield industrial assets to MindSphere. ioTium solutions are designed to enable industrial enterprises to rapidly and reliably move data from brownfield industrial assets to the cloud without the need for costly additional IT staff. Joint ioTium and MindSphere customers may also gain rapid return on investment from predictive analytics, preventative maintenance and machine learning.
“We have built our business on a unique understanding of the security, scalability and reliability needs of mission-critical industrial organizations embracing Industry 4.0,” said Ron Victor, Founder and CEO of ioTium. “Siemens has an extraordinary vision for the future of Industrial IoT, and ioTium is pleased to partner with them to help make their vision a reality for our joint customers.”
As a MindSphere Gold Partner, ioTium has technical staff trained by Siemens through the MindSphere technical curriculum, multiple MindSphere applications under development and a joint go-to-market agreement to assist customers in achieving substantial business value through IoT and MindSphere.
