Siemens Positioned as a Worldwide MES Leader in Two 2016 IDC Marketscape Assessments

  • IDC MarketScape recognizes Siemens as a leader for its MES software capability and strategy in both discrete and process manufacturing
  • MES leadership highlights another key component in Siemens Digital Enterprise Software Suite

Siemens has been positioned as a leader in two separate IDC MarketScape assessments: Worldwide Discrete Manufacturing Execution System 2016 Vendor Assessment (doc # EMEA41047916, March 2016), and Worldwide Process Manufacturing Execution System 2016 Vendor Assessment (doc # EMEA41048116, March 2016). Siemens’ rich set of MES offerings, which are part of the company’s Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) portfolio and developed by its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software business, helped position Siemens as a leader across two core metrics: Capabilities and Strategies. MES is one of the critical components of Siemens’ comprehensive digital enterprise software portfolio aimed at the digitalization of the global manufacturing industry.

“The IDC MarketScape’s positioning of Siemens’ MES leadership further reinforces our expertise in helping manufacturing companies worldwide transform their organizations into Digital Enterprises,” said René Wolf, Senior Vice President of Manufacturing Operations Management for Siemens PLM Software. “As we work with our customers to overcome challenges and seize the exciting opportunities of today’s digital world, we will continue to leverage all of our expertise and software leadership to help them innovate and create value for their customers well into the future.”

The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Discrete Manufacturing Execution System 2016 Vendor Assessment assesses the discrete MES market globally and focuses on evaluating and comparing the leading vendors operating in industries such as automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery and equipment, metal fabrication, high technology and electronics, and semiconductors. The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Process Manufacturing Execution System 2016 Vendor Assessment assesses the process MES market globally and focuses on evaluating and comparing the leading vendors operating in industries such as consumer packaged goods, chemicals, metals, and pharmaceuticals. Both of these assessments position Siemens as a leader in Capabilities and Strategies.

IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared. The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360 degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.
