Atos delivers first applications for Siemens MindSphere IoT operating system

Six Atos Codex mobile apps now available for MindSphere to manage manufacturing production processes and improve plant efficiency

Paris, Munich, 8 March 2017

Atos, a leader in digital transformation, is the first partner to deliver mobile applications for MindSphere, the open, cloud-based IoT (Internet of Things) operating system from Siemens. These applications enable manufacturers to access and analyze production data via their mobile devices, enabling them to efficiently manage production, resolve conflict and optimize resources to improve plant productivity. The first six MindSphere applications from Atos include the Manufacturing Sustainability App and the Production Confirmation App.

The apps integrate the production data with that from the various management systems, such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). Using Big Data Analytics, the apps enable users to receive role-specific and position-specific data about the current and future status of production. With these apps users are able to respond to and manage emerging problems in the production process in a timely manner, streamlining production processes. These Atos apps will be available to end-users in MindSphere version 2.0.

"Our IoT operating system MindSphere coupled with these new applications create concrete added value for customers," says Dr. Ralf Wagner, COO MindSphere at Siemens. "We are delighted that Atos is committed to this open ecosystem and is creating specific solutions on this basis."

“Atos is one of the first partners of MindSphere. We bring integration, infrastructure, consulting and security services as well as expertise in the development of ready-to-use applications, in order to seamlessly connect MindSphere customers with their existing IT systems” said Philippe Miltin, senior vice president of Manufacturing, Retail and Transportation, Atos. "Our objective is to provide more applications over the coming year."
