Our customers will now benefit from worldwide coverage, which supports new business models and scalability,” said Kai Brasche, vice president, MindSphere Partner Management EMEA at Siemens.
The partnership will initially focus on Europe, starting with solutions to be rolled out in Germany and Austria.
