Siemens Digital Industries Software can now deliver more seamless integration and data and process orchestration across the Xcelerator™ portfolio through an expanded strategic partnership with eQ Technologic (eQ). Building on the long relationship between Siemens and eQ, Siemens’ customers can now access the eQube® Data as a Service platform to create digital threads connecting systems including Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), Internet of Things (IoT), and other Information Technology (IT), Engineering Technology (ET) and Operational Technology (OT) solutions. eQube extends the Mendix™ Data Hub, a key component of the expanded Mendix low-code platform, and can help enable industrial data and system integrations with a rich set of over 60 smart connectors developed from domain-specific knowledge drawn from over 20 years of experience.
“Siemens and eQ have leveraged eQ’s proven technology for many years to successfully help customers in multiple industries to integrate and federate data and processes across systems,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, President and CEO at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Expanding our partnership can help us build on this success and expand globally across all the industries we serve.”
Many companies have data distributed across multiple systems and generated by a variety of applications. As digital transformation is embraced as a core business strategy, these organizations are under immense pressure to gain collective insight into this distributed data and connect it virtually without replication. The eQube DaaS platform establishes a connected network of integrated data, applications and devices that puts the power of analytics in the hands of end users leading to actionable insight. This partnership can help Siemens customers improve their ability to harness information from multiple systems by establishing an integrated data environment for their digital threads, multi-application integrations, orchestration and virtualization through for-purpose industrial integrations to address specific business problems.
As a first step in the expanded partnership, Siemens will begin offering the eQube DaaS platform with over 60 smart connectors, including PLM, ERP, Asset Management, ALM, IoT, Program & Portfolio and Databases and leverage the eQ team for pre-sales, services and field support. Leveraging the eQube DaaS platform in conjunction with the Mendix low-code application development platform, users can easily access data from across systems to automate new workflows and create new deeply integrated applications and experiences. With better understanding through traceability and actionable insights of cross-system data, Siemens’ customers can reduce required resources and accelerate their transformation into digital enterprises.
“As a long-time Siemens partner, we understand the importance and challenge of connecting data and processes across the digital enterprise, including a wide range of PLM products such as Teamcenter from Siemens, ERP, ALM, MES, Asset Management, other enterprise software products and IoT,” said Dinesh Khaladkar, President and CEO, at eQ Technologic. “Extending this partnership can further help Siemens’ customers accelerate digital transformation by connecting and integrating their systems. eQube solves complex integration problems, simply, helping organizations gain actionable insights and improve collaboration.”
