Siemens is expanding its partnership with AWS

Siemens is expanding its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to “democratize” access to generative AI and close the skilled labor gap across industries.

Siemens CEO Roland Busch announced the project in his opening keynote speech on the opening day of CES in Las Vegas.

Under the collaboration, Siemens will integrate Amazon Bedrock, a service for building generative AI applications, into its development platform, Mendix, allowing its users to access generative AI capabilities to create new and upgrade existing software.

“Access to Amazon Bedrock’s advanced generative AI technologies will help customers accelerate digitalization and tackle skilled labor shortages,” the companies said in a statement.

“Siemens and AWS are strengthening their partnership and making it easier for businesses of all sizes and industries to build and scale generative AI applications.” 

In particular, Mendix’s expanded capabilities are intended to support users in industries such as engineering and manufacturing, logistics, insurance and banking. 

The new service will allow customers to choose the generative AI model to suit their specific use case and incorporate that model into their applications. 

The partners said this provides a more efficient and streamlined process than traditional methods, with developers typically needing to access credentials and write specialized code when integrating generative AI models into their systems.

“By integrating Amazon Bedrock into our low-code platform, we are democratizing generative AI technology and empowering everyone to create the applications customers need to become more competitive, resilient, and sustainable,” said Busch. “Making smarter applications without programming expertise accelerates innovation and helps companies to tackle skilled labor shortages.”

“Together, AWS and Siemens are empowering companies worldwide to create new capabilities, solutions, and value with generative AI,” said Adam Selipsky, AWS’s CEO. “This partnership builds on our 10-year relationship with Siemens, giving customers across all industries the flexible, customizable, secure environment they need to take advantage of new opportunities with generative AI.”
