Singapore / Leipzig / Boston / London / Mumbai, 2017-Feb-13 - 2017-Feb-17
Now, more than ever, financing is becoming critical in transforming opportunities into reality. To stay on track with evolving technologies and to master economic and social changes, new business models are needed that integrate financing and technology.
From February 13-17, 2017, Siemens Finance Week illustrated how innovative financing solutions pave the way for new business models. At five events in Singapore (February 13), Leipzig, Germany (February 14), Boston, USA (February 15), London (February 16) and Mumbai, India (February 17), the company showed how the combination of technology and financing creates added value for various regions and industries – from infrastructure to energy production and all the way to automation and digitalization.
Siemens has released a new research paper that investigates emerging pay-for-outcomes business models. The ongoing globalization of trade continues to apply pressure to margins, compelling businesses to closely scrutinize costs and efficiency. Instead of financing enabling access to critical business equipment and technology, payments are increasingly based on predicted productivity or efficiency results.
