This is another consolidation move helping companies offer an integrated solution for manufacturers. Siemens has entered into an agreement to acquire TESIS PLMware, a recognized leader in the integration of product lifecycle management (PLM) software with other enterprise applications.
The acquisition will further enhance Siemens’ industry software portfolio. TESIS PLMware helps customers improve IT costs and efficiency by providing a proven solution for the integration of Siemens’ Teamcenter software with the world’s leading ERP systems and other enterprise applications such as MES, CRM and SCM. TESIS PLMware will, after closing, be assigned to Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division.
