Siemens Digital Industries is a leading innovator in automation and digitalization. Our mission is to consult and support customers from the discrete and process industries in their digital transformation. We continually expand our Digital Enterprise portfolio to include cutting-edge technologies and offer industry-specific end-to-end solutions for companies of all sizes.
Flexibilization of production processes
The advancing digitalization, in tandem with the increasing flexibilization of production processes, provides new opportunities and choices for industrial companies all across the globe – enabling them to address more and more differentiated customer needs and reduce their time to market. Digitalization also optimizes the use of resources such as energy, water, and wastewater, which simultaneously increases environmental efficiency. Digital transformation paves the way for still more innovation, new services and even entirely new, data-based business models. We support our customers in unlocking the full potential of digitalization for their company: as a partner providing leading technologies for the automation and digitalization of the discrete and process industries.
The Digital Enterprise portfolio is at the core of our offer. It provides companies of all sizes with the right products, along with consistent solutions and services for the integration and digitalization of the entire value chain. Optimized for the requirements of specific industries, our Digital Enterprise enables customers to reduce their product development times while at the same time increasing the flexibility, productivity and environmental efficiency of their production processes.
As an innovation leader, we think ahead to the next level of digital transformation – and integrate cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, edge computing, industrial 5G, autonomous handling systems, blockchain and additive manufacturing into our Digital Enterprise portfolio. This is how we drive the convergence of information technology and operation technology and enable the smart usage of data.
Thanks to MindSphere, our cloud-based, open IoT operating system, companies can now interconnect their products, plants, systems and machines – and analyze the data created on the Internet of Things to deliver targeted optimizations. Furthermore, they can develop digital services and innovative new business models focusing for example on predictive maintenance or pay per use.
But one thing is certain: Digitalization and interconnectivity require cyber security – the one is not possible without the other. We are convinced that industrial security is of highest priority for successful digitalization, and we therefore regard this as a key focus when designing innovative products, solutions and services.
Siemens Digital Industries, with its headquarters in Nuremberg, Germany, has a workforce of around 78,000 employees worldwide.
