Qliktag Software joins with Siemens to provide MindSphere applications for IoT smart products

Qliktag Software announced Wednesday that it has joined Siemens’ MindSphere Partner Program to enable consumer product companies to elevate their products to “Smart Products” during the manufacturing process. “Smart Products” promote trust, transparency and traceability, which are essential to compete in the new digital age.

The Qliktag Platform will be integrated with the MindSphere Industrial IoT platform to provide a solution that spans from the factory floor all the way through to the consumer. 

The Qliktag Platform has been developed with a robust architecture to help enterprises address Industry 4.0 challenges with trust, consumer transparency and item traceability through developing Smart Product driven solutions.

Headquartered in Newport Beach, California, Qliktag delivers the Qliktag Platform for IoT connected smart products, a platform that raises everyday consumer products to be “Smart Products” through an internet identifier and a “digital twin” for each batch, product or serial instance. This enables connected products to send or receive information over the internet throughout its life cycle, enabling a range of smart applications and business processes from transparency, traceability, authentication, personalization, activation, and customer engagement.

MindSphere is a cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens that connects products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling businesses to harness the wealth of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) with advanced analytics. 

With this partnership, Qliktag Software will integrate its IoT smart products platform with MindSphere, using an extensive set of APIs which can be used to further integrate with business and factory floor systems to connect interaction-driven ‘tagged’ items to participate within the IoT.

“Qliktag is excited to partner with Siemens. While Industrial IoT driven by connected devices and analysis of time series data is growing, we’re also seeing IoT expand to applications for ordinary items such as consumer products that are not constantly connected but interaction driven, requiring more structured data models,” commented Dilip Daswani, CEO at Qliktag Software. “The partnership with Siemens and integration with MindSphere can enable consumer products companies to have their everyday products connected to the internet right as they come off the factory floor,” Dilip added.

“Qliktag Software is capable of delivering tremendous value to IoT-enabled Smart Products through their vertically integrated solution. With Qliktag Software as a MindSphere ecosystem partner, MindSphere customers can address operational challenges of consumer transparency, item serialization, traceability, sustainability and product safety using MindSphere,” said Florian Beil, head of MindSphere Sales and Partners, Siemens Digital Industries Software.
