Siemens and smart data specialist SAS have announced their entry into a new partnership, which will help companies in a range of sectors to create new cloud-enabled solutions based on AI and the Internet of Things (IoT).
According to a statement, the joint-venture will provide users with access to SAS’ advanced and predictive analytics through the Siemens MindSphere platform, supporting the adoption of next-generation technologies such as machine learning (ML).
MindSphere is an open IoT operating system which digitally connects physical assets and facilitates a number of technological innovations, including digital twins and powerful industry applications.

By leveraging predictive and prescriptive maintenance, as well as solutions for optimized asset performance management, customers from industries such as manufacturing, energy and the transportation sector can increase productivity and reduce operational risks.
It has also been revealed that companies currently using both SAS and MindSphere will be able to port and deploy previously developed SAS models into MindSphere.
Stephen Bashada, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Siemens MindSphere, said: “SAS is a recognized world-leader in advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. We are excited to leverage their analytics in MindSphere.
“The combination of Siemens’ deep industrial domain knowledge with SAS’ deep analytics knowledge is a powerful step forward for IoT.”
Jason Mann, Vice President of SAS’ IoT Division, also commented: “Siemens’ pedigree in innovative operational assets, software and processes is unmatched.
“Their commitment to digitizing the world’s industries provides a unique platform for IoT to realize its full potential through AI. Our partnership can accelerate adopting the transformative value of IoT for our customers.”
