Vendor Report: Siemens
Siemens is one of the largest companies in the world. Siemens IT Solutions and Services (SIS), responsible for IT-products and services, is one of the different segments [Siemens refers to these as “sectors”] of the company group. The established IAM and GRC products from Siemens are also allocated to this segment.
Biometric solutions, smartcards, card management and public key infrastructures are part of the product range for IT security, in addition to IAM core solutions. SIS focuses more and more on the integration of horizontal solutions portfolios such ERP, CRM and vertical solution portfolios (EU Service Directive, PLM, healthcare, physical access control…) beyond just the products themselves. Hence, integrated IAM applications are also available. Such a range of solutions is not available from practically any other provider in the IAM and GRC market and thus could increasingly become a competitive advantage for SIS.
As pointed out by Kuppinger Cole several times, Siemens is one of the most underestimated providers in the IAM market – despite growing customer numbers, consistent product development, a high degree of innovative ability, especially for access management, and the affiliation with an economically strong company with an international infrastructure.
We assume that Siemens will be able to improve its visibility and positioning in the market place over the next year and will increasingly become more successful via vertical market offers. We especially recommend including Siemens in evaluation processes for the so called business cases.

When dealing with consumers and customers directly the most important asset for any forward-thinking organisation is the data provided and collected for these new type of identities.

On one hand the consumer wants to benefit from the organisation as a contract partner for goods or services.
