How does the new SAP and SIEMENS partnership affect your current solutions?
When strong partnerships occur, the strengths and talents from both companies emerge to deliver more impactful, comprehensive, and complementary software solutions to each user base.
The new SAP and SIEMENS alliance will leverage the strength of each to accelerate and deliver more business value, portfolio management, product lifecycle, supply chain, and asset lifecycle management across the entire product development chain.
SAP will sell SIEMENS Teamcenter and SIEMENS will sell SAP’s Intelligent Asset Management.
As such, each company aims to create a common goal of building a true digital thread to integrate not only system models, but also product simulations. The digital thread provides real-time business information, the integration of virtual models and feedback, and data across the entire lifecycle, ultimately improving business performance.
Both industry leaders seek to solve the challenges of data interoperability and system interface with their service offerings. SAP will offer Teamcenter software for product lifecycle collaboration and data management. SIEMENS will offer SAP’s Intelligent Asset Management and SAP Project and Portfolio management solutions.
Ultimately, SAP will begin to phase out PLM and resell SIEMENS Teamcenter. This may lead your engineering teams, including product design teams, service managers, production operations, and more, to question how this will affect business models, respective offerings, and business processes. Further, how will this impact your core foundational engineering processes, product design, and product data management?
