Siemens Selects Tangent Works to Democratize IoT Data Analytics for MindSphere


Reading time ( words)

Siemens Digital Industries Software announces a partnership with Tangent Works to deliver simple-to-use artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to get more value from IoT data. The new AI for Everybody solution integrates the power of Tangent Works InstantML technology into MindSphere®, the industrial IoT as a service solution from Siemens, to enable users to instantly leverage IoT data collected by MindSphere to generate new insights without the need for complex model training and management.

Many organizations still struggle to scale their digital transformation projects and leverage IoT data using advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies. Machine learning offers tremendous opportunities for industrial applications. However, it often requires deep knowledge about advanced statistics and how it’s applied in industrial use cases, as well as the scarce and expensive resource of data science experts.

“We are witnessing massive investments into digital and AI as companies get ready for post Covid-19 operations. Already before the pandemic, our research showed that a shortage of digital talent, especially in IT and data science, was the biggest challenge for companies looking to realize IoT, Industry 4.0 and AI initiatives,” said Knud Lasse Lueth, CEO at IoT Analytics. “This challenge will only get worse in the coming years and most firms will simply not find the experts that can build the machine learning models and integrate them into everyday operations. Companies that cannot find or afford these highly specialized digital employees will turn to low-code software tools to empower non-technical employees, or ‘citizen developers’.” 

Using Tangent Works’ InstantML as an embedded component in MindSphere gives industrial users the ability to very quickly add AI capabilities to their MindSphere applications and solutions. With this approach, the IoT data stored in MindSphere can be instantly leveraged to generate actionable insights and prescriptive tools, enabling important industry use cases such as predictive maintenance, performance optimization, quality management and energy management.

“We always believed in the potential of our InstantML technology for industrial data,” said Henk De Metsenaere, co-founder of Tangent Works. “Now that Siemens, the true market leader in this space, has teamed up with Tangent Works this potential can be unlocked. The combination of Siemens’ MindSphere with Tangent Works’ InstantML technology will change the way industrial data will be used to the benefit of many of Siemens’ clients.” 

“With the AI for Everybody solution, and with the integration of Tangent Works’ InstantML technology, customers and partners can now more quickly and easily extend the capabilities of MindSphere to better turn data into real and actionable insights and value,” said Raymond Kok, Senior Vice President of Cloud Application Solutions at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “With the ability to use AI/ML to generate hyper-automated predictive analytics, even citizen data scientists can leverage data and achieve immediate insights, at scale. This ultimately reduces complexity and puts the power of IoT data in the hands of the user.”

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
