The heart of every manufacturing organization is its shop floor. That’s where their data is generated; that’s where their data is captured; that’s where their data is put to work. To get the most mileage out of that data, manufacturers are increasingly investing in edge computing.
Safest, Fastest, Cheapest
Edge computing relies on network devices with local computing and storage capabilities that can securely transmit data between local networks and the cloud. Edge computing is essential for manufacturers striving to connect their informational technology systems with the operational technology systems.
Mendix on Edge is a new product designed to provide the safest, fastest, and most affordable way for manufacturers to build shop floor applications. With Mendix on Edge, you can build applications 10x faster with 70% fewer resources. And it provides the maximum level of security over those applications and the devices they run on.
Bringing IT and OT Together
Mendix on Edge combines the app development capabilities of our industry-leading low-code development platform with the management and execution of Siemens Industrial Edge. It opens the door to building apps that deliver a seamless user experience from IT to OT. IT teams can easily develop OT use cases and vice versa.
By bringing people with the relevant domain knowledge closer to the development process, Mendix on Edge not only boosts the market relevance of your applications, it reduces the complexity of building them. One early adopter of Mendix on Edge lowered their application development time from eight months to six weeks.
Developing with Mendix on Edge can also expand the capabilities of your applications. Schuler, a manufacturer of sheet metal processing equipment, is creating Siemens Industrial Edge apps that allow its customers to connect and monitor their equipment over the cloud.
The Buzz from SPS
Siemens announced Mendix on Edge at SPS 2023 to great excitement. Existing Siemens Industrial Edge users were eager to see how the new Mendix templates would free up their resources. And startup companies were curious as to how they could leverage the Mendix partner ecosystem to accelerate their market launches.
If you weren’t able to attend the Mendix on Edge launch at SPS 2023, we’ll be talking more about it at AWS re:Invent 2023. Come chat about Mendix on Edge with our experts at the Mendix and Siemens booths.
