Siemens wanghaibin: the industrial interconnection platform may face a reshuffle

21st Century Business Herald. According to Wang Haibin, general manager of Siemens Greater China digital industry group, there may be a reshuffle of China's industrial interconnection platform in the future

at the Hannover Industrial Expo on April 2, he told that most of the current industrial Internet platforms are general-purpose platforms. If there are three or five hundred (general-purpose) platforms, it is not a good thing for users

the day before, Siemens announced in Hannover that its cloud based open industrial IOT platform mindsphere officially landed on Alibaba cloud and entered the Chinese market

the current industrial interconnection platform is entering a Warring States era of fierce competition: enterprises from different fields such as equipment manufacturing, industrial automation, industrial software, communication and information technology, which vigorously develop new materials and technologies, have launched the industrial interconnection platform at the same time, running a horse and enclosure in the market related to enterprise cloud

data show that at least 269 industrial Internet platforms have emerged in China, and nearly 20 provinces and cities across the country have introduced policies to promote enterprises to the cloud; Industrial interconnection is developing rapidly. However, there is a big gap between many domestic platforms and international giants in core competence and ecological construction

many industrial enterprises, especially large enterprises, have doubts about the use of industrial interconnection platforms. Data ownership and data security are the key, and the constantly improving industrial interconnection security system and the increasingly mature edge computing and other new technologies may dispel this concern

the platform may face a reshuffle

these contenders are all over the Hannover Industrial Expo. Industrial giants Siemens, Schneider, abb and Hollysys promoted mindsphere, ecostruxure, abbability and hiacloud platforms. Industrial software enterprises sap and PTC promoted saphana and thingworx platforms, which officially implemented the "plastic restriction order" in China, while Microsoft and Amazon from the ICT field promoted azureiotsuite and awsiot platforms

China is not willing to lag behind. In recent years, a large number of industrial interconnection platforms have emerged in China. Haier, aerospace science and industry, Sany Heavy Industry, XCMG machinery, Foxconn and other leading manufacturing enterprises have launched cosmoplat, Indics, genyun, Hanyun, beacon and other platforms respectively

Alibaba, orient Guoxin, Inspur, UFIDA, Chinatelecom and other large ICT enterprises have also built Alibaba cloud, cloudiip, Inspur cloud, UFIDA smart, CPS and other platforms based on cloud computing, big data and other technologies

behind the mushrooming platform, there is no shortage of gentle policies. In recent years, China has intensively introduced a series of industrial interconnection support policies, and nearly 20 provinces and cities including Guangdong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong and Hunan have issued policy documents to promote enterprises to the cloud

Li Haihua, deputy director of the industrial interconnection identification management center of the China Academy of information and communications, said that according to the bottom data of the Ministry of industry and information technology in the third quarter of last year, China currently has 269 industrial interconnection platforms. As it is in the early stage of development, policies are relatively inclusive, and there are many industrial segments, China's industrial interconnection shows a situation of multi-point flowering

li Qiang, senior vice president of SAP worldwide and general manager of China, pointed out that in China, a large number of companies and capital are pouring into the field of industrial interconnection. Bat, small companies and even companies with no industrial background have also stepped in. Today, at least 500 enterprises in China claim to be able to provide industrial interconnection solutions and actively develop agricultural trade between Hainan and Southeast Asian countries, and at least 5000 enterprises hold business plans to finance. However, in any country in the United States and Europe, it is estimated that no more than five companies dare to claim that they can provide complete solutions for industrial interconnection

Jan Michael mrosik, chief operating officer of Siemens digital industry group, pointed out that there are about 600 industrial IOT platforms in the world at present, and only a few may survive in the future

people will increasingly find that the value of keeping hundreds of engineers busy building the 601st platform is limited. But in an area that requires professional knowledge, making changes through artificial intelligence and big data analysis can bring great value. The platform is not the key to win in the competition of IOT, but the application. Jan Michael mrosik said

data security concerns remain to be solved

it is worth noting that enterprises of different sizes have different attitudes towards industrial Internet platforms: large enterprises are more willing to do private cloud or localized deployment, while a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises are more willing to embrace public cloud platforms

Xu Xiaolan, President of China Industrial interconnection Research Institute, believes that for small and medium-sized enterprises, industrial interconnection platforms are becoming a new type of infrastructure. They can obtain industrial design software, industrial app, industrial cloud and other services at low cost or free on the platform, which greatly reduces costs

compared with large enterprises, the sunk cost of small and medium-sized enterprises is lower: previously, the digitalization of small and medium-sized enterprises required the establishment of IT departments and the maintenance of computer rooms, which required a high threshold and high investment. Now they are no longer facing the problem of whether to invest, but the problem of whether to use. Small and medium-sized enterprises are facing a historic opportunity for the nearly transparent digital transformation of this film

for the concerns of large enterprises, she said that industrial data is the lifeline of enterprises. Massive industrial data is not only related to industrial safety, but also a valuable asset of enterprises. Therefore, industrial enterprises will be more cautious about putting data in the cloud than consuming Internet

the key to the problem is who owns the data on the industrial interconnection platform? Is it safe enough

Wang Haibin pointed out that Siemens' clear attitude is that industrial data belongs to the equipment owner. No matter what is connected, Siemens will not view these data, which is technically not allowed, because these data are locked in a specific storage space. For example, the function block of each PLC program will be encrypted, and it can only run on a specified PLC CPU. If you change the CPU, it will not run

in addition, edge computing is also becoming an alternative to dispel industrial data security concerns

Wang Haibin pointed out that in the future, cloud computing will be combined with edge computing, that is, an edge computing controller will be installed on the machine equipment, and the data on the machine can be pre calculated and pre processed on the edge side first, and then uploaded to the cloud after processing

on the one hand, edge computing can make the application run on site, with shorter transmission path and real-time data processing; On the other hand, it also increases the autonomy of equipment enterprises. Enterprises can put their core industrial data and know-how on the spot, so as to ensure information security
