Siemens opens Digitalization Hub in Singapore

On July 11th, Siemens inaugurated a Digitalization Hub in Singapore at parallel events: at Siemens’ headquarters in Munich Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, and the President of Siemens AG, Joe Kaeser, unveiled a plaque in Munich to mark the Hub’s opening, while Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry), S. Iswaran, opened the Hub in Singapore with the CEO of Siemens Singapore, Armin Bruck.
At this Hub, Siemens will develop innovations for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrie 4.0 in collaboration with its customers in Southeast Asia. Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the Hub will also complement the country’s efforts to become a Smart Nation, because Siemens will be using its IoT operating system MindSphere – to drive digitalization in Singapore.
“Siemens will be key partner to help prepare Singapore for the new digital economy. Piloting MindSphere as the IoT operating system, Singapore has a unique opportunity to become the leading fully integrated urban ecosystem on the globe. To help achieve this, we’re setting up our largest fully-integrated Digitalization Hub in Singapore. We are bringing together experts from all our businesses, leveraging our leading industry know-how to optimize energy management, modernize infrastructure and transform industries,” said Joe Kaeser.
As part of the Digitalization Hub, Siemens will cooperate with customers, partners and universities to develop new digital applications.
To mark the launch of the Digitalization Hub, three collaboration agreements were signed with Singapore organizations.
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) will partner with Siemens to create and showcase data-driven innovations for urban infrastructure.
SP Group will collaborate with Siemens to build a next-generation energy management software platform for SP’s 24/7 control centers.
Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited and Siemens signed a partnership agreement for co-creating and proactively marketing innovative digital use cases in the field of transport, including roads, harbors, airports and mass transit. The focus is on applications and solutions for connectivity, cybersecurity, data convergence, analytics and contextualization. These applications will use MindSphere to enable expansion into further market segments.
With its Smart Nation initiative, the Singapore government aims to create a digitally networked environment that will enhance the quality of life throughout the country. Focused on five fields – transport, household and environment, productivity, healthcare and aging, and the public services sector – the initiative will provide Singapore with one of the most advanced urban development projects in the world.
