About the Podcast

“Complexity is not going to go away. But if you can harness complexity and use it as a competitive advantage, think about what you could accomplish.”


Tony Hemmelgarn, President & CEO of Siemens Digital Industries Software, will guide you through the linkage of the virtual world to the physical through ‘digital twinning’. Discover the importance of digital simulations and feedback loops, why challenging your customers might sometimes be the best way to secure their loyalty, and why exactly industrial companies will be the ones to watch over the next ten years. Plus, you’ll learn a little bit about computational fluid dynamics relating to airflow through protective masks and airplane cabins. (Trust us, it will all make sense.)
