A recent press release reports, “Siemens Digital Industries Software and SAS announced a new partnership today that will help companies create new IoT edge and cloud-enabled solutions by applying SAS and open source streaming analytics through Siemens’ MindSphere. Users will gain access to industry-leading SAS advanced and predictive analytics in MindSphere, which can accelerate the adoption of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) in Internet of Things (IoT) environments. Increasing productivity and reducing operational risk through powerful predictive and prescriptive maintenance and optimized asset performance management are just some of the ways these new solutions can benefit customers working in a range of industries including manufacturing, healthcare, energy & utilities, smart cities, transportation and automotive.”
The release continues, “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. ‘SAS is a recognized world-leader in advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. We are excited to leverage their analytics in MindSphere,’ said Stephen Bashada, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Siemens MindSphere. ‘The combination of Siemens’ deep industrial domain knowledge with SAS’ deep analytics knowledge is a powerful step forward for IoT.’ By intuitively applying AI and operationalizing its potential at scale, the partnership can drive a world class 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 powerful analytics capabilities.”
