Siemens and Softdel shared a joint statement today announcing a new partnership. Softdel’s globally recognized EdificeEdge IoT gateway platform solution has joined the thriving Siemens Connect Ecosystem – a network that brings together experts in software development, IT, cybersecurity, remote and digital services, and business intelligence.
Softdel’s EdificeEdge IoT gateway platform (part of its ConvergenceSuite) connects to a vast array of IoT devices and sensors ranging from temperature, humidity, air quality, fire & smoke, lighting in building areas and at the same time seamlessly integrates with Siemens’ platforms, including its building management system Desigo CC. The EdificeEdge IoT Gateway platform, built on a new modern microservices architecture is ideal for integrating siloed wireless IoT sensor systems in smart buildings and connecting them to the Siemens’ BMS and related platforms. Containerization technology at the edge makes it possible to go beyond data aggregation and run computer-intensive applications enabling tomorrow’s AI-enabled digital buildings.
“Through our ConvergenceSuite of products and solutions, we are bringing the power of ‘Edge’ to smart buildings enabling a shift towards truly optimized, self-diagnosed, and energy-efficient buildings,” says Sachin Deshmukh, Managing Director, Softdel. “Our EdificeEdge platform integrates perfectly within Siemens’ platform ecosystem including Desigo CC. Our partnership with Siemens is a significant step towards driving our vision of connecting devices, enterprises, and people. We look forward to jointly delivering exceptional value to our customers as part of their transformational journey around smart buildings and infrastructure.”
Sunil K Dalal, Founder, and Chairman of Softdel adds “IoT technology bears the potential of providing unprecedented insights to numerous aspects of today’s buildings. With ever-increasing connected devices installed in smart buildings, there is an ongoing need for seamless integration to offer real-time actionable insights. EdificeEdge is a significant milestone in our two-decade journey of providing innovative solutions to the global building automation industry. Our partnership with Siemens is a step in the right direction to continue our efforts to bring exceptional value to our customers.”
The Siemens Connect Ecosystem pulls together the tools, processes, training, and support necessary for third-party solution providers to successfully create solutions that integrate seamlessly with Siemens’ platforms, including its Desigo CC Building Management System, the APOGEE Automation System, and related platforms.
“As world events and the rapid evolution of technology are pushing the boundaries of smart buildings, a thriving partner ecosystem is extremely critical to innovate quickly, deliver value to customers, and enter new markets much faster,” says Rene Herrera, Head of Ecosystem and Development at Siemens Smart Infrastructure USA. “While it is extremely difficult for any one company to deliver a solution that solves customers’ specific challenges, our Siemens Connect partners and domain expertise across industries allow us to co-innovate at a pace that exceeds customer needs and expectations.”
