Their partnership is meant to exceed the industrial IoT market expectations for robust solutions in the region, and to bring T-Systems’ connectivity solutions from its NarrowBand-IoT to the German industry, as well as ultimately offering technology to better enable the development of 5G, cloud, edge computing technology and enhance industrial operations and processes.
Adel Al-Saleh, CEO of T-Systems stated: “We partner to drive and shape the digitalization of the German Industry. The new solutions comprising technologies such as 5G, cloud and edge computing will enhance industrial operations and processes”.
Siemens’ cloud-based IoT operating system MindSphere, along with its shop floor automation offerings and deep expertise in vertical industrial digitalisation, is expected to contribute to full automation—from enterprise architecture design to system implementation.
“T-Systems and Siemens [have] cooperated,” said Jan Mrosik, chief operating officer of Siemens Digital Industries, “to enable German businesses to drive industrial digitalisation and accelerate the development and deployment of industrial IoT solutions.”
All in all, the T-Systems-Siemens partnership reflects both companies’ interests in proving leaders in Information Technology, telecommunications, and operational technology.
