This IDC Perspective provides our analysis of the recent 2018 Siemens Industry Analyst Conference, held in Boston, Massachusetts, the United States. With the continued adoption of 3rd Platform technology to accelerate digital transformation, Siemens continues to focus on enabling the closed loop for products and assets across the enterprise. Digital twins, 3D printing, and generative design and engineering continue to be key strategic initiatives for the company moving forward.
"Siemens' growth has been steady over the past three years, in part because the company has consistently focused on unifying its product and production teams, products, and messaging, and the market has evolved to be ready for a platform approach to design, development, and manufacturing," said Jeff Hojlo, program director, Product Innovation Strategies.
