Read the latest CIMdata white paper “Powering the Cloud Journey: Siemens and AWS”

By Scott Salzwedel

The expanded collaboration between Siemens and Amazon Web Services (AWS) seems to be breaking new ground by the day. New offerings… New customers… New stories of customers successfully moving operations to the cloud.

The CIMdata white paper discusses the latest details regrading why cloud computing and adopting a SaaS strategy, are the way of the future. How cloud computing and SaaS are fueling the digital transformation. Even though cloud computing and SaaS are gaining traction among a variety of industries, there are still businesses reluctant to make the move.

The paper touches on why this might be:

-Security-related issues

-The difficulty of migrating on-prem legacy applications

-Lack of IT experience/knowledge

There’s also a good discussion on how we need to move forward in a post-pandemic world.

Learn how the Siemens and AWS partnership is creating a highly productive cloud-based environment with state-of-the-art computing services, software and support. The Siemens Xcelerator open digital business platform also plays a key role here with its comprehensive digital twin, digital threads and the many SaaS offerings.

Finally, there’s a discussion on sustainability and how moving to the cloud can help companies improve their environmental footprint. So very important these days.
