Mendix presents Mendix for MindSphere: low code solution for industrial IoT

Mendix presents Mendix for MindSphere: low code solution for industrial IoT

Siemens has made Mendix for MindSphere available immediately. This solution must make all the advantages of Mendix available for software development for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

MindSphere is a cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens that gives developers access to open APIs, services, and all the support they need to quickly and easily build, test, and deliver MindSphere applications.

Siemens took over Mendix last year for 600 million euros. Mendix for MindSphere now offers integration between the two companies’ platforms. According to Siemens, the low code development platform should help to bring new breakthrough industrial software solutions to the market.

According to research conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Siemens in February this year, there is also a demand for 46 percent of the IoT decision makers that partners that develop vertical industrial applications can be very useful for their organization.


The integration should accelerate the time-to-value for industry investment in connected sensor technology. The Mendix platform with support for artificial intelligence and visual development model should ensure that organizations can deploy more people for the development of IoT applications.

The commitment of professional developers can be complemented by business professionals, engineers and operational employees, without requiring a great deal of programming knowledge. “By developing native MindSphere applications with Mendix’s no-code/low-code approach, we give our customers opportunities that are unsurpassed for an industrial IOT vendor,” says Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries Software.

After the takeover of Mendix, Siemens already said that it wanted to expand its efforts in the area of software possibilities for IoT with the purchase. Even then, it spoke of a combination of Mendix and MindSphere, because more and more devices and machines are becoming connected to the cloud, resulting in a need for a platform for real-time analysis of the data. With the combination of the two platforms, this has become possible.
