Artificial intelligence, decentralized electrification, autonomous machines, block chain applications, and connected e-mobility — these are the five fields where next47 will operate. As a result, next47 is a central component of the Siemens strategy in the growth segments of electrification, automation, and digitalization.
The new brand next47 creates the freedom to scale companies in quick and uncomplicated ways — without the organizational restrictions of a group. Bringing innovations to market quickly, in ways that meet customers’ needs, is crucial to the success of Siemens and also of next47.
The new unit will be given the necessary independence but can nevertheless leverage the advantages Siemens offers. “We are thus uniting the world of start-ups with the world of large companies. The advantages add up. They are enhanced agility, speed, and independence, coupled with a global customer base, many years of experience, credibility, and financial strength,” says Lak Ananth, manager of the unit.
