January 24, 2018 - Working hand in hand with 18 partner companies, Siemens AG is founding “MindSphere World”, a worldwide user organization for the cloud-based open IoT operating system MindSphere.

The organization is also designed to afford support to its individual members in developing and improving IoT solutions on the MindSphere platform and in tapping new markets in the digital economy. This will include suggestions about the requirements placed on the IoT operating system MindSphere by the industry and recommendations on setting out uniform rules for data utilization. Another role of the organization will be to promote science, research, and teaching in the MindSphere environment.

The members of the organization meet in committees to deal with issues such as  the requirements placed on MindSphere by industry, data governance concepts and the Assocation’s PR work.
