HP, Siemens PLM form deal to accelerate PLM adoption

HP and Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division, have formed a global agreement allowing the companies to accelerate client adoption of software and services that reduce the time needed to implement PLM projects.

The agreement was announced at Hannover Fair, the world’s leading trade show for industrial automation.

The companies announced their collaboration with Malaysian automobile manufacturer Proton Holdings Berhad (Proton) in support of Proton’s globalisation plan.

As PLM projects become more sophisticated, a growing number of companies require a single prime contractor to take full responsibility of the deployment and financial transaction, Siemens PLM claims.

The agreement expands the existing relationship between Siemens PLM Software and HP, enabling clients to source PLM software products, hardware and services directly from HP, thereby freeing up resources to focus on the core business.

“More than ever, manufacturers must align their product development efforts more closely with their business strategy,” said Joe Barkai, program director, IDC Manufacturing Insights.

“This means teaming with global partners who can combine the PLM technology and business process expertise to get the job done.”
