Siemens Teamcenter Now Available on Google Cloud

Connects people and processes across functional silos with a digital thread for innovation

Published: Wednesday, November 23, 2022 - 11:58

(Siemens: Chicago) -- Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that its Teamcenter software for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is now available on Google Cloud. This will enable customers to implement one of the world’s most widely used PLM systems more quickly, at lower total cost of ownership, and with the accessibility and scalability that today’s manufacturers demand.

Teamcenter, from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services, is a modern, adaptable PLM system that connects people and processes across functional silos with a digital thread for innovation. Teamcenter helps customers plan, develop, and deliver products while providing secure, controlled access to a company’s most sensitive intellectual property throughout the life cycle of the product, from conceptualization to end of life.

When implemented in an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) deployment model on Google Cloud, Teamcenter can help improve infrastructure performance, scale to meet project demands, and lower the total cost of ownership. Additionally, it enables customers to gain those benefits along with the speed, scale, security, and sustainability of Google Cloud. Bringing Teamcenter to the cloud enables customers to more easily break down silos to combine the realms of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), enabling the fusion of data from the real world of automation with the digital world of information and engineering technology.

“Customers of all sizes and in all industries trust Teamcenter to help them develop and make the products of the future,” says Joe Bohman, senior vice president of Lifecycle Collaboration Software at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “By bringing Teamcenter to Google Cloud, we’re enabling more organizations to speed their adoption of PLM, getting them up, running, and productive with innovative capabilities more quickly.”

“With Siemens’ Teamcenter on Google Cloud, manufacturers will be able to combine Siemens’ expertise and technical capabilities with Google Cloud’s industry-leading security, compliance, and manageability,” says Hans Thalbauer, managing director of Supply Chain and Logistics Solutions for Google Cloud. “The collaboration will enable customers to respond quickly to changing business needs and easily scale up to meet their PLM software demands.”

In addition to the advantages of easy cloud access, Siemens has extended usability with a preconfigured Teamcenter connector to Google Workspace. Docs, Sheets, and Slides users can now manage these files in Teamcenter and edit in the browser.
