Safe Software: Digital Twins and Their Role Within the Data Space

Digital twins are virtual models designed to accurately reflect a physical object or process. The real-world applications of this are endless - from city planning to construction and decoration, digital twins can help you visualise concepts within spaces with ease.  When it comes to processes a digital twin can represent measurements of flows that are difficult to show such as wind direction, or temperature of flows within pipes. 

What’s more, the twinned object can be outfitted with sensors and produce performance data that can be applied to the digital copy. This offers a valuable insight into how the physical object will perform in real life.  

How do digital twins relate to spatial data?

In the second episode of a three-part EM360 Podcast with Safe Software, President Don Murray speaks to Susan Walsh, Founder and MD of The Classification Guru, about:

  • Digital twins and the evolution of spatial data

  • What expertise and requirements are needed to create a digital twin

  • The potential that lies in digital twins for the future and how they can move society forward

Data is an important asset in every business and organisation but working with data can come with some challenges. FME is the data integration platform with the most comprehensive support for spatial data that turns data into insights to better serve modern customers and purposes. Building effective digital twins requires combining many different data types and is a good example of where FME shines. The FME Platform powers decisions with enterprise integration and no-code automation. Spend more time using data, and less time fighting it. Empower your business or organisation with data today.
