At the Hannover Fair in Germany, Siemens and Paessler strengthened their association in the industrial space with the confirmation that Paessler PRTG is an essential part of Siemens’ Lifecycle Management Suite (LMS).
Daniel Leese, product manager of the Lifecycle Management Suite at Siemens explains the role of PRTG in the Lifecycle Management Suite, “With Paessler’s PRTG, we will extend our Lifecycle Management Suite by a state-of-the-art IT/OT online monitoring solution. This allows our customers to automatically generate a Reactive Maintenance Work package.” As a result, IT and OT monitoring data and alarms from PRTG can be easily integrated into the workflows and processes of engineers and technicians.
This development builds on the partnership between Siemens and Paessler. Both companies already worked together in the past, but now they are taking their relationship to a strategic level to leverage the strengths of Siemens and PRTG in the industrial sphere.
Paessler PRTG and Siemens Industrial Automation DataCenter (IADC)
PRTG is already used with Siemens’ Industrial Automation DataCenter (IADC), which can be maintained by LMS. It monitors the various components of the IADC, displays the collected monitoring data in dashboards, and alerts system administrators of any failures. This helps to ensure the excellent performance and uninterrupted operation of the data center. Furthermore, PRTG provides LMS with transparency across IT and OT.
Helmut Binder, CEO of Paessler, highly values the ongoing trust that Siemens has shown in Paessler PRTG monitoring software. “It is an honor that a world-class company like Siemens, with its reputation for innovation and quality, has chosen our Paessler PRTG monitoring solution to complement their industrial offerings,” Helmut Binder said. “This highlights not only the versatility and reliability of our monitoring software but also the value it delivers in industrial settings.”
In recent years, Paessler has extended its monitoring focus beyond IT and into the world of OT and IIoT and is already monitoring industrial infrastructure across the world. Paessler took another step into OT by releasing Paessler PRTG OPC UA Server, a product extension that provides supervisory and control systems (like SCADA) with monitoring and alarm data from PRTG.
