Siemens PLM Software Name Change

In a comment to my previous post titled “The Diminishing Significance Of PLM” mentioning Siemens PLM Software replacing “PLM” with “Industry” in its name, Brad Holtz wrote:

“Until Siemens actually goes public with a name change, any reference to a potential change, particularly when you aren’t giving the actual name, seem more confusing than helpful. My opinion.”

SYCODE is a Siemens partner and according to our agreement if either party changes its name or constitution, the other party needs to be notified. I received a letter from Siemens a few months ago regarding the name change.

Anyways this is public information already and no big secret. Take a look at this link. This is a UK government web site showing Siemens PLM software, which was formerly Unigraphics Solutions Limited, changed its name to Siemens Industry Software Limited on 1st April 2010. I’m sure you can find equivalent web site listings for US and other countries.

    To clarify, there was NO name change.

    Siemens PLM Software is the name of the company.

    There is, however, a new entity, Siemens Industry Software, which is a consolidation of the software sales teams for Siemens. From their press release at… :

    “Siemens also announced it is consolidating the respective sales channels for product lifecycle management (from Siemens PLM Software), manufacturing execution systems (from Industrial Automation Systems) and plant lifecycle management (from the former Comos Industry Solutions) at the country level under the legal entity name of Siemens Industry Software”

  • Brad, maybe you didn't click the link in the post or read the text in the image. At least in the UK there was a change in name. Siemens Industry Software is not a new entity as the records indicate. Anyways, I am seeking a clarification from Siemens on this.
