Bernd Gross Interview for IoT Now Magazine

Bernd Gross Interviewed for IoT Now.

Pre-packed solutions accelerate IoT adoption.

Bernd Gross, SVP of Software AG's new IoT & Cloud business unit, was interviewed for IoT Now magazine, on how Cumulocity IoT allows enterprises to focus on their core competence


Bernd Gross, tells IoT Now that, the market is moving decisively towards an informed understanding of the potential of IoT solutions. Therefore, we start to see solid and strategic investment in the Internet of Things.

We are in front of very complex projects because of their strategic nature, but also because of their size and their sophistication. For example, we are working on projects involving more than 100,000 machines. And, the project does not only aim to monitor these machines, but to run sophisticated activities such as predictive maintenance of those machines. Bear in mind, 100,000 machines is just the beginning. The project is moving towards a global roll-out, which will involve a larger number of machines.

Cumulocity IoT allows enterprises to focus on their core competence

At Cumulocity we have a strong commitment to innovating our platform and actively invest in updating existing services and offering new ones. Consequently, we believe that Cumulocity offers a very reliable, scalable, and innovative platform.

We offer capabilities that are not often seen in the market place. One to highlight is our true multi-tenant architecture. In some cases, multi-tenancy is used to describe multi-user access to platforms which present an intuitive UI to users and for multi-user management. However, this is just part of a multi-tenant architecture.

Cumulocity offers multi-client architecture at database level. The data can be stored by customers completely separated at the database level. This ensures a strong level of data security. This aspect is becoming especially relevant in the Industrial Internet, in which the data volumes are growing continuously and in diverse ways.

Following this, Cumulocity also offers a very flexible and expandable data sharing concept. This is important in the Industrial Internet because applications require interactions between a variety of partners and stakeholders as in the case of the supply chain.

MindSphere is Siemens’ cloud-based, open IoT operating system that connects real things to the digital world, and enables powerful industry applications and digitalservices to drive business success.

MindSphere’s open Platform as a Service (PaaS) enables a rich partner ecosystem to develop and deliver new applications providing a basis for new business models, such as in the fields of preventive maintenance, energy data management or resource optimization. The open access of the operating system is particularly important here, such as the use of open interfaces (APIs) to produce OEM and customer specific apps as well as open standards for connectivity such as OPC UA. MindSphere thus forms the basis for new business models, for example for machine manufacturers. Siemens MindApps provide the basic functions for machine manufacturers to enter the digital world. Machine manufacturers can use these basic functions to apply their specific and comprehensive machine and process knowledge to developing and marketing innovative customized applications, solutions and services for their customers. This allows them, for example, to monitor machines scattered throughout the world, or whole machine fleets, and to reduce their downtime.

Software AG and Siemens AG’s technology will provide comprehensive market- leading capabilities enabling users to acquire and comprehensive analyze raw data produced by plants, machines, systems and products even more easily. For this, Software AG application and device management technology enables both centralized networking of devices as well as cloud-based management, providing scalable and flexible management for a network of millions of end devices, also in the area of edge analytics in the future. Software AG application connectivity technology integrates a variety of different business applications (e.g., SaaS, Big Data, IoT, client-, partner- or shop-floor applications) along the entire value chain.

MindSphere is part of Siemens’ comprehensive Digital Enterprise Suite solution. Companies that are designing, developing, and manufacturing products using the Digital Enterprise Suite for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) and Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) are building products, like laptops, computers, televisions, cars, trucks, planes, heavy equipment, fitness devices, white goods, etc. Siemens envisions these products being connected to MindSphere so their data can be collected and analyzed in MindSphere applications and connected back to the complete Digital Twin to drive innovation. With this platform, the company enables smooth collaboration for all stakeholders along the entire industrial value chain, from individual product design to the delivery of associated services.
