IDC TechScape: Worldwide Digital Twins, 2019

By: Jeffrey HojloProgram Director, Product Innovation Strategies, Christopher HolmesManaging Director - IDC Insights Asia Pacific


This IDC study focuses on the transformational, incremental, and opportunistic technologies necessary for successful digital twin implementation and operation. While there are multiple existing enterprise technologies available within organizations today that are necessary to support digital twins, this study focuses on the new, digital technologies that make digital twins essential entities that support enterprisewide processes, including design, development, supply chain, manufacturing, service, and customer experience.

"The value of digital twins lies in flexible data visualization. That is, the complex data model that is a digital twin should be synchronous and secure, enabling different domains across the organization to view the level of information and knowledge they want to see, whether that is a lightweight model or a detailed, complex view. Digital twins have been in use within manufacturing engineering and R&D workgroups for years — the difference today is, due to 3rd Platform technology, these flexible models can be deployed across the value chain of the digitally transformed organization as a decision support enabler," said Jeff Hojlo, program director, Product Innovation Strategies.
