Digital Twins have changed the way water professionals (engineers, plant operators, asset managers, utility executives) approach infrastructure management. Those involved in digital transformation initiatives are no strangers to the benefits the Digital Twins can provide. In fact, Innovyze has been in the business of facilitating utility adoption of water Digital Twins for nearly 40 years.
The reason for Digital Twin use is certainly validated. Having live virtual representations of physical infrastructure assets provides an indispensable benefit for engineers, operators, and managers. Hydraulic models, reporting dashboards, and near-real-time data access has tightened the seams between the planning, engineering, and operation of water-intensive infrastructure networks and plants.
