Siemens Digital Industries Software and SAS announced a new partnership that will help companies create new IoT analytics for edge and cloud-enabled solutions by applying SAS and open source streaming analytics through Siemens’ MindSphere. Users will gain access to SAS advanced and predictive analytics in MindSphere, which can help accelerate the adoption of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) in Internet of Things (IoT) environments. Increasing productivity and reducing operational risk through predictive and prescriptive maintenance and optimized asset performance management are just some of the ways these new solutions can reportedly benefit customers.
Siemens and SAS will collaborate to engage with new and existing customers and, beginning with streaming analytics, enable near-real-time embedded AI for IoT devices at the edge. The partners expect the solutions to be generally available later this year.
By intuitively applying AI and operationalizing its potential at scale, the partnership can drive an end-to-end solution framework for customers. Companies currently using both SAS and MindSphere will be able to port and deploy previously developed SAS models natively into MindSphere while new users will gain access to analytics capabilities.
