Siemens NX Wins 2022 SaaS Award 

By Julianne Bass

We are proud to announce that Siemens NX has been declared the winner of the Best SaaS Product for Engineering Management, PLM or CAD this week in the international SaaS Awards program. 

Bob Haubrock, Senior VP of Product Engineering Software said: “It is an incredible honor to be a winner in the international SaaS Awards, where competition was topmost this year.”

“Siemens stood out at SaaS Awards 2022 because Siemens’ NX system offers seamless interoperability between on-premise desktop CAD software and cloud-native CAD software, resulting in less friction in the engineering workspace. A well-deserved win for Siemens”

said Lead Judge, Annabelle Whittall

The Siemens NX SaaS Strategy

­The Siemens NX submission highlighted the focus and dedication we have had on its transition to a SaaS strategy.

We specifically emphasized how the Siemens NX transition reflects a comprehensive strategy for providing SaaS solutions for product design that combines desktop software available on the cloud as well as on-premises, with complementary cloud native software that is backed by a common and secure data management backbone.

This strategy shows a pathway where robust and comprehensive CAD software business logic can be delivered via cloud SaaS solutions. This provides a significant benefit to product design teams as they can immediately reap the benefits of a mature CAD solution along with the value of cloud and SaaS.

This contrasts with other solutions in the market where adopting CAD on the cloud requires compromising on CAD functionality and seamless data interoperability.

Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams, said: “Siemens NX is a worthy winner of the SaaS Awards, offering something that truly stood out in an incredibly competitive category. Every year, we take pride in assessing the compelling solutions and performance of our candidates. The evolution and progress of submissions goes only one way: up. Every edition of this business software ‘Oscars’ sees progressively exciting innovations as we face the increasing challenges and changes of the modern world.”

Hundreds of organizations entered the SaaS Awards, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. You can view the full shortlist here:
