FPT and Siemens partner in MindSphere IoT operating system
September 2017, News


FPT Corporation and Siemens have announced the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, upon which the two companies will collaborate in utilising and implementing MindSphere, the cloud-based, open operating system for the IoT from Siemens, for global customers of different sizes.

MindSphere is designed as an open operating system for industrial companies (e.g. machine manufacturers and plant constructors) as the basis for their own digital services, such as predictive maintenance or optimising products and production processes by using digital twins etc.

FPT Corporation‘s expertise in IoT has been trusted by a growing number of customers, from start-ups to Fortune 500s, to digitally transform the way they do business while ensuring maximum cost-saving and consistent high performance.

In the scope of the MoU, FPT and Siemens will work together to co-develop workforce and provide joint offerings to drive the digital transformation for businesses in areas where both have strong footprints, e.g. Asia Pacific (Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Korea, Australia) and Europe.

Hoang Viet Anh, CEO of FPT Software, commented: “As we are in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution, companies must transform themselves into more digital-centric entities. Our partnership with Siemens in MindSphere is a testament of FPT’s commitment to help businesses drive digital transformation. By combining FPT’s expertise in IoT enablement for various industries, with MindSphere’s vision to simplify IoT interaction and experience, we can open doors to limitless inspiring digital innovations.”

Jan Mrosik, CEO of the Digital Factory Division at Siemens added: “Through our partnership with FPT, we are further expanding the ecosystem around our IoT operating system MindSphere and with it the digital transformation across all industries. FPT’s deep knowledge in analytics, cloud technologies, engineering services and application development makes them a valuable partner for us and our customers.”
