Presentation Two:

Topic: Scaling a digital twin pilot to unlock value

Summary: Recognizing the growing importance of connected data and integrated digital workflows, the value that can be unlocked via the application of digital twins cannot be understated. Spatially enabled Digital Twins will provide the framework for smart decision-making and enabling transformation, becoming the digital workbench for the organisations and councils into the future.

From a technical perspective, partnering with existing key players in the market to develop a “best practice” approach improves certainty, speed of delivery has a built-in support model and ensures a future-ready outcome.

In this session, we will be discussing lessons learnt from digital twin pilot projects. What is working, what isn’t, how to get a tangible return on investment, and how to address the challenge of scaling pilot workflows up to be applied to an enterprise-level solution that can be applied to many assets.
