Siemens AG makes it easier for employees to collaborate securely

Business Situation

Siemens is a powerhouse in delivering innovative, forward-thinking solutions around electrification, automation and digitalization. Recognizing that employees want to use the same level of technology at the office as they do at home, Siemens launched a workplace transformation to bring the company into a new digital era. Because of the size and complexity of the global transformation, it turned to its trusted partner Avanade to replicate the success of previous joint programs.

“We believe, enabling employees to use these AI topics will be a key changer in the future to make our employees more productive, which will also result in a positive impact on our business.”

Thomas Müller-Lynch Global Microsoft 365 Implementation Program Lead, Siemens


In deploying the full suite of Microsoft 365, Avanade supported Siemens in redefining its workplace as a creator of sustainable value while transforming its culture, technology and experiences to increase cost efficiency, productivity and growth. To ensure everyone benefited from a secure modern workstation, Avanade migrated approximately 380,000 users in over 2,800 locations across 108 countries, giving them the tools needed to work with state-of-the-art technologies in real time.

The way of working first changed with the introduction of Yammer and Planner. This evolved again when Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint were added, giving employees version control on shared documents, which fostered improved information exchange and communication.


Siemens now has an efficient, highly responsive and secure evergreen workplace platform. As the digital backbone of the company, this modern workplace helps to drive business growth and profitability through digitalization, including faster time to market, analytics, end-to-end services and efficient IT delivery. Additionally, one source for all makes it is easier for employees to securely collaborate and make better business decisions.
