New Start for free features and benefits

Now with Start for Free, partners, developers, and end users can deliver MindSphere experiences faster than ever to their customers and demonstrate real business value.

Industrial Connectivity

Explore MindSphere by connecting assets and upload data to MindSphere!

Users can now use MindConnect hardwares, as Nano or IoT 2040, the MindConnect Lib to create own connectivity agent, or MindConnect Software Agent to allow customers to transform their own devices into connect gateway to connect to industrial assets to MindSphere. 

Deploy apps to customers

Allow app operators to deploy their apps to free tenants on demand!

Partners can deploy their own apps or solutions to their customer's Start for free tenants as required via developer or operator cockpit. As the app owner, partners decide to which customers, when and for how long the app will be available for free.

Free to Full Experience

Seamless land and expand experience for partner's Start for free users!

Partners and customers can now transform their Start for free tenants into full access, paid accounts. Users can further extend their accounts on demand by purchasing the app, solution or service provided by the partner.

Partner Tracking Strings

Receive your customer registrations for Start for free directly!

Partners can now promote Start for free directly to their customers using their own unique "promotion tracking strings". Registrations completed using a tracking string are routed back directly to the respective partner that can help the  customers to implement their own use cases, identify and generate real business benefits with MindSphere.
