I look forward to further developing the answers our customers are looking for around drive systems and how Siemens’ ‘one stop shop’ for entire drive trains can play a key role for them. Our customers face challenges around digitalisation adoption and adhering to new standards and whether for process applications or in the discrete industries, only the consistent integration into the entire production environment is the answer for future-proofed drive applications.
