On its first day, Siemens Realize Live user event highlighted its partnerships with the likes of Sony and Microsoft as it looks to showcase its strong industry position.

Siemens and Sony have partnered to bring NX Immersive Designer, including Sony’s XR head-mounted display (HMD), SRH-S1, to market later this year, announcing few further details.

The SRH-S1 will include high-quality 4K OLED Microdisplays and controllers for intuitive interaction with 3D objects.

Sony Corporation, users of Siemens NX CAD software since 2015, explained that the SRH-S1 was designed using the Siemens’ NX software it is now set to run.

Seiya Amatatsu, head of Sony’s XR Technology Development Division, detailed how his team relies on Siemens NX. “Sony succeeded in implementing NX in the fastest schedule in the world and we were able to improve our design process productivity by 25 per cent,” he said.

“Although significant advancements have been made with NX, I wanted to achieve further evolution with a product that brings innovations allowing direct editing in an immersive environment. I believed that could be realised with Siemens and as a result, the XR head-mounted display was developed that could bring innovative products to market more rapidly.”

The reassertion of its partnership with Microsoft is key factor in the company’s move to run software through Microsoft’s cloud and AI platform Azure, allowing the Siemens Xcelerator as a Service portfolio to integrate with Azure’s generative AI and Copilot features.


“Our customers have asked for Siemens to bring our industry leading industrial software to Azure,” said Siemens Digital Industries CEO Tony Hemmelgarn. “Siemens and Microsoft have been partners for more than 35 years, and we are pleased to expand this partnership so we can best enable our customers to digitally transform through our joint solutions.”

As a first step, Siemens will deliver Teamcenter X software, its scalable PLM solution, on Microsoft Azure, enabling customers to implement their mission critical solutions on their preferred cloud and AI platform.
