Siemens (Plano, Texas) has launched its global MindSphere Partner Program to equip operational and information technology partners with tools that help them solve business and technology challenges for end customers. This is the first phase in the company’s investment in a global team to support strategic and regional partners with business development and technical resources to develop their own solutions on the MindSphere platform.

“Siemens’ open platform-as-a-service approach, combined with its enhanced partner program, provides key resources to jointly solve problems for our customers,” says Paul Albada Jelgersma, senior vice president and global head of Atos Services for Siemens’ MindSphere at Atos IoT Services.

Through the program, partners can build IoT applications and solutions on the MindSphere operating system and provide professional services to solve business problems. It is designed to address a range of device and enterprise application connectivity protocol options, industry applications and analytics. Using the company’s open platform-as-a-service (PaaS) capabilities and access to native Amazon cloud services, it connects real things to the digital world and provides industry applications and digital services to drive business success, the company says. Target partner business models for the MindSphere Partner program include system integrators, application developers, consulting and strategy partners, technology partners, connectivity partners, and hybrid OT partners.

The program has three tiers (Platinum, Gold and Silver), each with business development benefits and requirements. All partners can access business development benefits and earn influencer fees by identifying and helping close MindSphere opportunities via a deal registration tool. Gold and Platinum partners are also eligible for business development funding to drive proof-of-concept, marketing and technical activities that the company says can accelerate their businesses and investments. A MindSphere partner manager will work with these partners to define a business plan to align resources for joint success.
