Siemens Digital Industries Software debuts, focuses on delivering digital future of industry today

Siemens PLM Software has transformed into Siemens Digital Industries Software, reaffirming its focus on enabling digital industries and merging virtual and real worlds in software, hardware, design, and manufacturing


“Every industry we serve – from aerospace and automotive to electronic design – is transforming,” Siemens PLM Software officials in Plano, Texas, acknowledge. Siemens PLM Software, too, is undergoing a transformation, having just changed its name to Siemens Digital Industries Software.

Systems are becoming smarter, more automated, more connected, more digital, and, ultimately, more and more complex. It is, in turn, driving a dramatic increase in the complexity of how products are engineered and manufactured even as the cadence of innovation speeds up, Siemens officials say. “We believe engineering teams can best thrive in such environments with tools that blur the boundaries between physical and digital domains.”
