Maximize the Potential with Digitalization

Siemens Innovation Day - May 27, 2019 in Mumbai

Siemens Innovation Day showcases innovative solutions that create sustainable value for businesses and societies. It is an event for dialogue around output-driven, market-oriented technological and business innovations.

Focusing on digitalization, Innovation Day 2019 addresses topics of vital importance for India – including Smart Urban Infrastructure, Digital Enterprise, Connected Mobility, Future of Energy, Artificial Intelligence and more.

Siemens experts from Digital Industries, Smart Infrastructure, Gas and Power, Mobility, Corporate Technology and Next47 will share the latest innovations, industry trends, and demonstrate how Siemens solutions create value for customers and society.

The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Roland Busch, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG.

Smart Infrastructure for the Urban Environment

The quality of urban infrastructure is central to quality of life in cities. The way urban centers are planned, built and managed has never been more critical to economic and social development.

India’s growing economy and rising urban population require resilient infrastructure that is capable of supporting this growth sustainably. Nearly a third of the population currently lives in urban centers, and there are already more than 50 cities with over a million inhabitants.


In the areas of energy, transportation and buildings, the demand for modern and sustainable infrastructure is growing rapidly across cities in India. Digitalization is the key for making urban areas better places to live. Siemens’ innovative solutions ensure the reliable and energy-efficient operation of buildings. They also enable intelligent, networked and distributed energy systems as well as smart mobility networks.

Digital Enterprise – Thinking Industry Further

Shorter time to market, higher efficiency and more flexible production are just some of the many advantages of digitalizing the value chain.

The digital future offers new perspectives for improving your competitiveness through Digital Enterprise. You can analyze the readiness of your production units for an end-to-end transformation. Using Digital Enterprise, you can also identify action fields for process and production improvements on a previously-intangible problem with Closed Loop Analytics.

Siemens’ broad digitalization portfolio and strategy focus on bringing innovation to industries, both process and discrete. These innovative solutions for the entire value chain ensure asset integrity and asset reliability, safety and regulatory compliance. You can maximize operational efficiency, achieve the safest and cleanest operation, and create a comprehensive digital twin.

Shaping Connected Mobility

As demand for mobility rises relentlessly, concepts that make transport more efficient are urgently needed.

The number of registered vehicles in India has increased about 150% over the last decade. More than eight billion annual passenger trips are made on about 68,000 kilometers of rail network. Meanwhile, India’s metro rail network is expected to double in size over the next six years.

With the ever-increasing need for mobility, solutions are needed that can tackle the challenges arising from increasing traffic volumes, congestion, poor air quality and less productive economies. With long-standing transport expertise and IT know-how, Siemens offers a full range of intelligent mobility solutions that increase the availability of existing infrastructure, optimize capacity and improve passenger experience.

Tomorrow’s mobility infrastructure is electrified, automated and digitalized. Siemens can draw on rich transport experience and in-depth expertise to add intelligence, creating smart solutions that allow mobility providers to react swiftly to, and even anticipate, any given situation.

The Future of Energy

India’s energy demand is growing faster than the global average. Innovative technologies will help meet the country’s energy needs sustainably.

In the energy system of tomorrow, a much higher share of energy will come from renewable sources. Networks will be characterized by fluctuating feed-in volumes and increasingly decentralized production at smaller power plants. Along with hardware improvements along the energy conversion chain, digitalization will be key to running a stable and sustainable energy system.

With innovative technologies, products and solutions, Siemens is helping to close the gaps in energy supply and make power generation, transmission and distribution smarter. Working with its customers, Siemens analyzes their requirements for energy systems and develops tailored solutions that address specific challenges and goals.
