The world of manufacturing is experiencing a major transformation as digital technologies are re-shaping what is possible, from achieving new levels of operational efficiency to unlocking innovative business models.

Microsoft is uniquely positioned to facilitate the Digital Twin using Industry 4.0 Design Principles today. One of Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017, a digital twin is a virtual model of a physical thing, such as a product, process, or service. Using data captured by IOT sensors in the physical world, a digital twin can be used to simulate real world conditions, providing insights to improve operations and add value.

Watch the video to learn how Microsoft is re-defining the digital twin, bringing the power of immersive, mixed-reality capabilities to deepen and accelerate interactivity across the value network and how Microsoft can help make your digital transformation a reality.  Microsoft manufacturing experts will also set the stage for how new value networks can be created that multiply the potential for gains in operational efficiency and the development of new business models.
