Siemens and Bentley Systems decided to further strengthen their strategic alliance during their latest Alliance Board meeting. The two companies will extend their existing agreement, to develop their joint business cooperation and commercial initiatives. The initial 50 million euros investment program will therefore be doubled and taken to 100 million euros. In addition, the Siemens stake in Bentley Systems now exceeds 9%, as a result of the continuous investment of Siemens into secondary shares of Bentley's common stock.

Strategic alliance

Klaus Helmrich, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, declared: "I'm very pleased with how strong our alliance started. Now we are investing in the next collaboration level with Bentley, where for instance we will strengthen their engineering and project management tools with Siemens enterprise wide collaboration platform Teamcenter to create a full Digital Twin for the engineering and construction world."

He added: "Integrated company-wide data handling and IoT connectivity via MindSphere will enable our mutual customers to benefit from the holistic Digital Twins."

Going digital

Greg Bentley, Bentley Systems CEO, said: "In our joint investment activities with Siemens to date, we have progressed worthwhile opportunities together with virtually every Siemens business for 'going digital' in infrastructure and industrial advancement. As our new jointly offered products and cloud services now come to market, we are enthusiastically prioritizing further digital co-ventures. We have also welcomed Siemens' recurring purchases of non-voting Bentley Systems stock on the NASDAQ Private Market, which we facilitate in order to enhance liquidity, primarily for our retiring colleagues."
