Siemens and TCS announce partnership for IoT innovation

June 8, 2017 - Tata Consultancy Services, a global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, and Siemens announced a collaboration around Internet of Things (IoT) innovation. Focused on customers in the manufacturing, energy, building technology, healthcare and railway industries the partnership is intended to enable customers to benefit from new data insights and services based on MindSphere, the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens.

Siemens and TCS solutions will enable customers to explore models that capitalize on IoT innovation and realize the 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 of all shapes and sizes around the world. Initially the program will be focused in the manufacturing sector, where IoT has already gained significant traction due to the immense data volumes generated in the production process, enabling innovations in system performance and connectivity.

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

Drawing on TCS’ experience, the company will offer MindSphere applications as well as digital and analytical services that can reduce downtime, maintenance related costs and energy consumption, while increasing the lifetime of their machinery.

This collaboration will see TCS apply its breadth and depth of expertise across technology areas such as automation, IoT and connectivity with a focus on execution for brown field implementations in varied environments.
