The Cloud and the Digital Twin

CENIT-KEONYS expects that by 2025, around 50% of new licences sold by the group will be Cloud-based. Collaborative innovation proves to be the real driver of the growth and competitiveness. Cost reduction, quality and innovation are the main challenges the industrial chain, from OEMs to suppliers of all sizes and in all sectors. The promise of the Cloud: cheaper, more agile and secure hosting services is intruding considerably into the industrial sphere. Now Industry is seizing those digital opportunities to design, simulate and plan its production online and collaboratively with its community; a tremendous advantage to imagine and create the products and services of the future.  The Innovation Day will be an opportunity to give you more information on the different Cloud solutions.

The industry has always evolved to reinvent itself and address the new challenges of its time. I am personally convinced that the digital twin will be a key contributor to a sustainable innovation. The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform provides the Industry sector with a “digital twin” of its activity to optimize the innovation strategy of the companies. Combining simulation and data, the digital twin reproduces the real system it models. It makes it possible to anticipate the product life cycle stages and to plan the activities of the whole production chain. “A factory’s “digital twin” means virtually designed products, but also manufacturing processes and production management in digital mode, linked to real-time data. Housing a “digital twin” on the Cloud means it can be accessed anytime, anywhere, and connected to an extended ecosystem. It is a way for companies to easily integrate entire value chains to make them more productive, agile and in line with new societal paradigms. Don’t hesitate to exchange on this topic with our teams.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon.
