The COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges around the globe, the likes of which we have never experienced. Our employees, partners and customers are all adjusting to working in new ways, and though this is an incredibly difficult time, it has also brought out the humanity in all of us. We have been amazed by some of the innovative things the Siemens Software community has done in response to this global health crisis.
We’ve seen the expedited design and manufacturing of entirely new products.
We’ve seen the development of apps that capture and share critical health information in new ways.
Companies in our ecosystem have forged partnerships and offered expertise in new industries and applied technologies differently than ever before.
It has been nothing short of inspiring to witness and play even a small part in the worldwide effort to adapt and fight against this global threat.
It has been heartening to see the community stepping forward to offer expertise, resources and technology to help fight this battle. NVIDIA is bringing GPU, HPC and AI Expertise to the
COVID-19 high performance computing consortium
which also includes IBM, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, AMD, Google Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Microsoft. This also includes many in our academic community, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, that is
developing a $100 open source ventilator
There are far too many companies who have donated money and medical supplies to list, but we would like to make a special thanks to the government of Longquang (Chengdu, China), our partner in the Chengdu AVEV Engineering Center project, who have donated 100,000 face masks to Siemens for our employees on the front-lines.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our employees, customers and partners who are playing a role in the fight against this pandemic, especially those who are on the front lines of the crisis. As a reminder, we are offering free access to some of our platforms and online learning memberships – and so far thousands of you have taken advantage of
. We also know many of us are working outside of our normal environments, so we are working to expand access to our portfolio to our community. For more information,

Stay well – we will get through this – together.
