Capgemini Group and Microsoft collaborate to offer cloud-native digital twin solution to help organizations rethink their operations

This secure, highly scalable platform will leverage best-in-class architecture and technological components from the Azure suite to help transform an organisation’s operations and maintenance efficiency, enabling intelligent industry and driving sustainable business value.

Paris, October 12, 2022 – Capgemini Group today announced that it is collaborating with Microsoft to deliver a first-of-its kind, cloud-native, serverless Azure-based digital twin platform, called ReflectIoD. This secure, highly scalable platform will leverage best-in-class architecture and technological components from the Azure suite to help transform an organisation’s operations and maintenance efficiency, enabling intelligent industry and driving sustainable business value. It will also enable enterprises to meet the ever-growing needs of standardized brownfields management[1] throughout their life cycle and across ecosystems.

In an organisation’s life cycle, enormous amounts of data are produced by different assets in a variety of formats and by different actors. These are also often hosted in different IT silos. It is therefore difficult for industrial players to quickly access the right data and have a 360° view of their assets to optimise operations, maintenance and asset availability. ReflectIoD addresses this problem by federating data from multiple systems and formats, such as 1D to 3D, Point cloud[2], Geographical information, OT and IoT data[3], and more[4], into a unique referential – the asset digital twin. It is built on an evolutive data model which can be customised for different industries or organisations, leveraging Azure Digital Twins and Azure IoT, while also offering value added services to improve operations and maintenance. This holistic view of the assets enables data-centric collaboration and alignment between teams across multiple geographies, improves overall-decision making and enables the creation of new services.

Jean-Pierre Petit, Digital Manufacturing and Supply Chain Group Offer Leader at Capgemini said, “Incremental use-cases and a data-driven approach are key to successfully deploying digital twins in the field. Scalable and configurable by design, the deployment of this new platform will make it possible to drive sustainable business value for organisations by delivering shorter turnaround times, breaking down silos within an organisation and improving operational efficiency. Together with Microsoft’s cloud expertise, we’re confident in enabling organisations to rethink their operations and shape the manufacturing and business ecosystem of tomorrow.

Our collaboration with Capgemini offers a seamless opportunity for operators to capture and derive more value from data created across the full asset lifecycle. By leveraging cloud services and the power of digital twins, manufacturers can move from systems of record to systems of reality, driving unique and accelerated competitive advantage at scale,” said Çağlayan Arkan, Vice President, Global Strategy and Sales Lead, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Microsoft.
