Digital twin technology is the virtual replicas of physical devices that data scientists and IT professionals can use to run simulations before the actual devices are built and deployed. They are also changing technologies such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and analytics.
This concept appears for the confluence of the physical and virtual world where every industrial product will get a dynamic digital representation. The Internet of Things (IoT) has become cost-effective to implement. It is so imperative to business.
Thomas Kaiser, SAP Senior Vice President of IoT said,
“Digital twins are becoming a business imperative, covering the entire lifecycle of an asset or process and forming the foundation for connected products and services. Companies that fail to respond will be left behind.”
