Siemens opens digitalisation hub in Singapore

The German electronics titan will support Singapore’s aim to become a Smart Nation.

Siemens, with the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), has established a Digitalisation Hub to advance the city-state’s Smart Nation goals.

The hub will be a base from which Siemens will develop innovations to drive Singapore’s digitalisation efforts. It will be powered by Mindsphere, Siemens’ cloud-based, open Internet of Things (IoT) operating system, which offers data analytics, connectivity capabilities, and tools for developers.

The hub will be staffed by an inter-disciplinary team of data scientists, software engineers and other specialists to develop and commercialise digital solutions for a Smart Singapore, in collaboration with customers, partners and universities. This team is expected to grow from 60 specialists to 300 by the year 2022.

“Leveraging Siemens' MindSphere operating system, this Hub will create new opportunities for businesses to tap onto the country's rich digital ecosystem to co-develop innovative digital solutions in the Industrial IoT space,” said EDB Chairman Dr. Beh Swan Gin.

To commemorate the opening of the hub, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong joined Siemens AG CEO Joe Kaeser at the company’s headquarters in Munich, Germany, to unveil a plaque. In Singapore, the hub was launched by Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry), S. Iswaran, and the CEO of Siemens Singapore, Armin Bruck.
