MindSphere World Italia

It is called MindSphere World Italia, and it is the association born of the collaboration between 18 industrial companies, innovative startups and universities to develop the homonymous operating system. 17 partners work alongside Siemens to develop the Internet of Things.

Among these 17 partners also Crippa S.p.A.


What is MindSphere?

MindSphere is a cloud-based operating system from Siemens that transforms data from a factory, an infrastructure or a plant into information and knowledge.

The association - founded in Germany in January - arrives in Italy with the aim of promoting the MindSphere platform in Italy, Spain, France and Portugal and to provide its members with the tools to improve solutions related to the Internet of Things.

One of the main the goals of the association is to suggest the requirements for the industrial use of the platform and to define shared rules for the use of data.

"The creation of a local organization of MindSphere users in Italy and in the assigned countries represents another important step forward in the promotion of the ecosystem that surrounds the open platform for the IoT, but also a further demonstration of the strategic importance of the Italian market for Siemens in the industrial sector and the role of Siemens worldwide", explains Giuliano Busetto, president of MindSphere World Italia. "MindSphere aims to be the IoT standard for cloud applications in the industrial world and in infrastructures".

Besides Siemens and Crippa the founding partners of this new reality are Buffoli Transfer, Camozzi Digital, Engineering Computer Engineering, Famar, Polytechnic Foundation of Milan, Itcore, Jobs, Mario Frigerio spa, Miraitek, Nordmeccanica, Pama, Rittal, Grinding machines Ghiringhelli, Salmoiraghi , Sampsistemi and Zani.

"By creating a local community that includes companies from the manufacturing world and from the IT world, of all sizes and from different industrial sectors, we aim to realize and carry forward an ecosystem based on MindSphere. The wide experience and the offer of the partners of the association - assures Andrea Gozzi, secretary general of MindSphere World Italia - will open to all users in Italy, but also in France, Spain and Portugal, a completely new digitalization potential".
