Google Cloud and Siemens Energy have announced a new, multi-year collaboration to digitally transform Siemens Energy’s business infrastructure, systems and data with Google Cloud.

Under this partnership, Google Cloud will work with Siemens Energy to shift its global network of data centres into the cloud, bringing its company-wide SAP systems into a future-proof cloud environment and power sustainable Digital Transformation with the industry’s cleanest cloud.

“We searched for a partner that could not only deliver availability and scalability, but also challenge us to grow beyond our comfort zone,” said Kian Mossanen, CIO at Siemens Energy. “We knew that choosing Google Cloud would ensure more reliability and less downtime for our systems, which is critical in the energy industry. But it was also Google Cloud’s collaborative and innovative culture that made them the perfect partner, as we embark on this massive Digital Transformation.”

“The energy market is rapidly evolving as sustainability becomes a primary focus and consumer habits and global demands on the industry change,” said Adaire Fox-Martin, President, EMEA at Google Cloud. “We’re proud to support Siemens Energy’s Digital Transformation with clean cloud infrastructure, partnering to build a technology platform that will support future growth and change.”

Modernising data centres with Google Cloud

Beginning in the second half of 2021, Siemens Energy will migrate more than 2.6 petabytes of manufacturing, supply chain and sensor data, stored across its multiple data centres, to Google Cloud. Siemens Energy has laid out an ambitious timeline for the project, aiming to complete the majority of the data centre migrations within 15 months. Siemens Energy has committed to becoming climate neutral by 2030, Google Cloud will support them with a carbon neutral cloud, matched 100% with renewable energy, helping them meet the ambitious goals. Google Cloud will partner with Siemens Energy and bring industry specific innovation and expertise to help the company become a cloud-first and even more agile organisation.

Building a future-proof foundation with SAP and Google Cloud

Siemens Energy will also bring its SAP Enterprise Resource Planning Central Component (ERP ECC) and Supply Chain Management applications and data on to Google Cloud, enabling greater scale, uptime and flexibility for these business-critical systems, as well as low-latency access to SAP applications for more than 750,000 users across 84 countries.

In addition, Siemens Energy will leverage ‘RISE with SAP’ on Google Cloud, accelerating its transition to SAP S/4HANA and creating a future-proof foundation for the company’s vast SAP environments and data.
