The Digital Twin Consortium defines a digital twin as being a virtual representation of real-world entities and processes, synchronized at a specified frequency and fidelity. Digital twins use real-time and historical data to represent the past and present and simulate predicted futures. Additionally, digital twins are motivated by outcomes, tailored to use cases, powered by integration, built on data, guided by domain knowledge, and implemented in IT/OT systems.

The following article by Rameshwar Balangu, a Forbes Council Member, touches on all points of interest to any organization that is considering adopting a digital twin strategy within their infrastructure.

Mr. Balangu wisely states “The success of digital twins ultimately lies in the hands of the people. Therefore, it’s imperative that the C-suite is fully aligned with the concept and the implementation of the technology is purpose-led rather than guided by a data-first strategy.”
