Siemens internet of things plugs into Hana cloud

Simatic ‘Connector Box’ extends Siemens cloud for industry offering.

Siemens has announced an addition to its Siemens cloud for industry (SC4I) that is to underpin new internet of things business models. The new kit is a ‘connector box,’ a Simatic IPC-based gateway that transmits machine and system data securely into the SC4I platform that is built on top of SAP’s Hana cloud. The device connects machines and systems to the cloud via a manufacturer and protocol-independent connector.

SC4I supports the development of web services-based applications in an ‘open’ eco-system. Current examples include a fleet manager and a visual data analyzer. The functionality will also be integrated into other products in Siemens’ portfolio of digital factory and industrial communications solutions.
