Siemens fully embeds Mendix rapid application development

One of the world’s largest manufacturing companies has announced its plan to deliver a product it believes will help customers with the cloud and IoT.

Less than a year after Siemens announced its acquisition of Mendix, the leader in low-code and no-code application development is now the primary application software for all of Siemens Cloud Solutions.

With Mendix in its core, the new Xcelerator platform will offer customers the ability to build multi-experience apps and share data on any device, from any location, on any cloud and any platform and more quickly realize the benefits of digital transformation.

It will be powered by the cloud-based open IoT Seimen’s operating system, MindSphere.

The software used

It was described in a blog how Xcelerator will use the manufacturing company’s software usually used in design, engineering, and manufacturing. It also includes a multi-experience application development platform that has been created through an expanded Mendix function.

Tony Hemmelgarn, CEO, Siemens Digital Industries Software says: “Siemens has a long history of delivering innovation by blurring the boundaries between engineering and operational domains and bringing together the virtual and real worlds. Xcelerator continues that tradition, combining our full portfolio of software that spans from electronic design automation through product lifecycle management with the Mendix platform and MindSphere for IoT.

He continued, “Unique to Xcelerator is the ability to build personalized applications that can capture feedback and performance and feed those insights back into design and manufacturing — delivering on the promise of the Digital Enterprise across the discrete and process industries,”

Combining skills

As part of the new product, the Xcelerator also integrates Siemens’s broad and deep portfolio of software for electronic and mechanical design.

It’s hoped that the new platform will enable firms to digitally transform through personalised and adaptable software solutions.

“I am also excited to be moving into the future as Siemens Digital Industries Software – a new identity that reflects our broad portfolio of digitalization software and services that are where design, engineering and manufacturing meet tomorrow.” The CEO added.
