Siemens Strengthens Security and Enhances Productivity Using AWS

Global technology company Siemens modernized its security infrastructure on AWS and achieved a centralized dashboard of security findings from across the company. Its previous system required the security team to gather data manually from various sources, which made it difficult to respond to issues quickly. The company migrated to a suite of AWS services, including AWS Security Hub, integrating them with its existing security tools. As a result, it implemented automatic notifications, enhanced productivity, and strengthened its overall security posture while improving communication.

Siemens Case Study

AWS Berlin Summit 2019
Safer Railways Through Better Data Analytics
Siemens uses AWS to deliver its Railigent application to rail operators. The application collects data from live trains and helps operators make data-driven decisions to ensure the safety and efficiency of their rail networks. To enable this, Siemens developers needed to access and manage data efficiently across multiple business silos. Because data was not stored consistently across the organization, preparing datasets could take months, and costs were unacceptably high. In this video, Yvonne Quacken, head of digital services research and development at Siemens, explains why the company uses AWS and how the company built an environment for Railigent using AWS.

Siemens Power and Gas Case Study

Siemens Power and Gas Use Matillion ETL for Redshift from AWS Marketplace to Speed Data Analytics
Siemens Power and Gas division was looking for ways to accelerate its data-analytics and customer-digitalization projects. After choosing Amazon Redshift, it wanted to build out the solution with best-in-class software. A search through AWS Marketplace led Siemens to run a free trial of Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift, which took less than one hour to try, buy and implement within their existing AWS environments. Siemens Power and Gas continues to use AWS Marketplace to find, try, and buy software that sets up in minutes and can shave weeks off of project timelines through the ease of implementing software and shortened procurement cycle.
