Siemens Launches Siemens Xcelerator in Canada

Siemens Canada partners with Dexterra Group to harness power of digital technologies

To unlock the value of digitalization at speed and scale for its Canadian customers, Siemens has launched its global open digital business platform, Siemens Xcelerator, in Toronto at Collision Conference 2023. The platform accelerates digital transformation and value creation for customers of all sizes in industry, buildings, grids and mobility and includes an evolving marketplace to facilitate interactions and transactions between customers, partners and developers.

Siemens Xcelerator makes digital transformation easier, faster and scalable by offering a curated portfolio of internet of things (IoT) enabled hardware, software and digital services from across Siemens and certified third parties, that follow key design principles of Interoperability, flexibility, openness and as-a-service. Siemens Xcelerator brings together a growing ecosystem of partners, including Dexterra Group, one of Canada’s premiere facilities and operations management leaders.

“Siemens Xcelerator makes it easier for customers to navigate the digital transformation, faster and at-scale. Combining the real and digital worlds with a growing network of partners enables cooperation, collaboration, and co-creation – and that’s the spark where new ideas and business models happen,” explains Peter Koerte, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Strategy Officer of Siemens AG.

Siemens and Dexterra Group are exploring the capabilities and applications of digital solutions within the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio as they build upon an existing technology partnership.

In one instance, they will utilize Building X, a fully cloud-based, open software, smart building suite with AI enabled applications, strong connectivity and built-in cybersecurity.

Building X takes the complexity out of digitalization and breaks down data silos across domains such as energy management, security and building maintenance. The platform will enable Dexterra to analyze end-to-end data from across its portfolio of built environments and services to make intelligent decisions about their buildings, assets and workforce. Building X applications have been designed to support high-performance, safe and sustainable buildings with the intent to decrease operating costs, increase building efficiency and meet net-zero goals.

We’re excited to be collaborating with Siemens and we recognize the tremendous value that can be unlocked by continuing to invest in forward-looking, scalable technology that helps us find new ways to enhance asset performance and achieve goals we set with our clients Mark Becker, CEO, Dexterra Group.

Building X operates in various environments, including production and manufacturing sites and commercial buildings. Customers can use Building X as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application, on a subscription basis, or opt for an end-to-end offering of building services.

“Digital solutions are a key enabler to countering current challenges like climate change, resource scarcity and rising costs,” said Faisal Kazi, CEO, Siemens Canada. “We’re honoured to be working with a valued and innovative partner in Dexterra, and to be deploying future-proof, digital solutions that increase efficiency and performance while decreasing OPEX. Importantly these technologies contribute to ensuring a secure and comfortable environment for customers, property owners and occupants.”
