SDA offers its own connectivity service that can be installed on existing IoT Gateways on the edge to enable connectivity to devices (e.g., PLCs) from the SDA solution. SDA services such as IDEaaS and automated deployment (see below) use this connectivity service.
Automation engineering development environments (e.g., Siemens TIA Portal) can be streamed in the browser incl. access to the PLC and integrated project versioning. Customers need to bring their own license (BYOL model).
