Siemens’ Teamcenter achieves AWS Industrial Software Competency

  • Teamcenter software receives AWS Industrial Software Competency status after rigorous AWS technical validation
  • Teamcenter is the digital thread that ties together digital twins through the ideation, realization, and utilization stages of the innovation lifecycle, forming the backbone of the digital enterprise 
  • Using Teamcenter in the cloud provides the benefits of a digital enterprise strategy to a much broader set of companies than ever before

Announced today at AWS Transformation Day in Munich, Siemens has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Industrial Software Competency status for the Teamcenter® portfolio. Achieving the AWS Industrial Software Competency highlights Siemens as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member and a leading industry expert, working closely with AWS and delivering effective solutions. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise. To receive this designation, APN Partners must undergo rigorous AWS technical validation related to industry-specific technology, as well as an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their solutions.

“Siemens PLM Software went through an extensive evaluation for the AWS Industrial Software Competency designation, and we are excited to be one of the first PLM vendors selected,” said Joe Bohman, senior vice president of Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software. “Our ability to deliver Teamcenter on the cloud allows our customers to deploy more quickly with a lower cost of ownership, and scale as their business grows. Achieving AWS Industrial Software Competency status is a confirmation of the value of Teamcenter on the cloud, and it will give customers greater confidence in choosing Teamcenter.”

With Teamcenter, companies can deliver increasingly complex products to market while maximizing productivity and streamlining global operations. Acting as the digital thread that connects many data sources, Teamcenter helps companies digitalize information to closely simulate their products and processes -- improving global collaboration throughout the enterprise, and driving innovative products to market faster. Using Teamcenter on the cloud helps customers lower their cost of product lifecycle management (PLM) ownership by simplifying deployments, eliminating large upfront infrastructure costs, and improving enterprise access to PLM data and processes. By enabling true digital twins of not only the product, but also the production environments and real-time product performance, customers large and small can be empowered to make product and manufacturing information universally accessible and useful for their business. 

"Upfront deployment costs and delayed time-to-value are traditional barriers to PLM implementations,” said Stan Przbylinski, vice president at CIMdata. “CIMdata research indicates that cloud PLM deployments can reduce time-to-value by minimizing these barriers, allowing organizations to more quickly benefit from PLM solutions."   

Siemens PLM Software’s suite of integrated software and hardware solutions seamlessly integrate and digitalize entire value chains. Product lifecycle management (PLM), manufacturing operations management (MOM), and totally integrated automation (TIA) are delivered using the Teamcenter data model, and connected to MindSphere, the cloud-based, open Internet of Things (IoT) operating system which also achieved AWS Industrial Software Competency status.
