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. 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 and productivity 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.

Bringing new special machinery for the pharmaceutical industry to market faster became possible for German machine builder Bausch + Ströbel with the help of digital twins. CEO Dr. Hagen Gehringer also restructured mechanic, electric, and automation teams to enable interdisciplinary development – all to significantly cut engineering times.
Thanks to a very high degree of automation and digitalization, Dulux Australia offers efficient production even in a batch size of one. For Project Director Kevin Worrell this means as little as one pallet of paint – 100 liters – can be produced for special orders or in response to market demands.
Aviation manufacturer Piper Aircraft Inc. uses Siemens industry software and the digital twin in aircraft design. As a result, Piper was able to equip their trainers with the latest electronics technology, while increasing production tenfold over an eight-year span. “I want my engineers to be innovative. To do that they need to have the best tools that are available”, says Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott.
