Siemens Updates Teamcenter Certification for Microsoft Azure
MUNICH, Germany, Mar 15, 2018 – Siemens announces today the updated certification of the Teamcenter portfolio for Microsoft Azure. Continuing to build upon their cloud computing strategy, Siemens moves Teamcenter beyond traditional product lifecycle management (PLM) offerings by diversifying its cloud partner base and expanding its delivery methods, resulting in less costly and more flexible customer deployments. Through the Microsoft Azure certification, Siemens’ PLM customers can realize a lower cost of PLM ownership, with more flexibility in deployment options.
As software, hardware, services, policies, and security requirements continue to evolve, updated certifications can help companies confirm that evolving technologies continue to work together. Siemens’ longstanding collaboration with Microsoft is one aspect that helps customers understand the technology supplied by both companies can help them reach their innovation and product delivery goals.
“Offering Siemens Teamcenter on Microsoft Azure gives customers much more flexibility and affordability when it comes to PLM deployments,” Çağlayan Arkan, general manager, Worldwide Manufacturing and Resources, Microsoft Corp.
“Azure allows for more flexibility in deploying and maintaining Teamcenter, while lowering the cost of PLM ownership with reduced IT resource and infrastructure requirements.”
As more enterprises embrace the cloud for PLM, Siemens is helping support and enable those customers to achieve their goals of lower cost of ownership, ease of deployment, and faster time to value. With Teamcenter Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) on Microsoft Azure, customers can spend less on infrastructure, get up and running more quickly, and potentially reach greater returns on their PLM investment.
“Teamcenter already helps our customers develop their own market-leading products. Now, with the updated certification of Teamcenter on Microsoft Azure, our customers can deploy PLM more quickly, with lower infrastructure cost, and scale it whenever the business need arises,” said Joe Bohman, senior vice president of Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software.
