Bentley Systems Joins Digital Twin Consortium as ‘Groundbreaker’
May 21, 2020
Bentley Systems Inc., a leading global provider of comprehensive software and digital twin cloud services for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, has joined the Digital Twin Consortium at the ‘Groundbreaker’ level.
Digital Twin Consortium was formed by non-profit trade association Object Management Group with Ansys, Dell, Lendlease, and Microsoft, creating a global ecosystem of users who are accelerating the digital twin market and demonstrating the value of digital twin technology. As the authority in digital twins, the consortium brings together industry, government, and academia to drive consistency in the vocabulary, architecture, security, and interoperability of digital twin technology. Digital Twin Consortium aims to influence the direction of digital twin technology development, become the focal point for digital twin thought leadership, and promote, evolve, and refine digital twin best practices and benefits.
As a groundbreaker member of the consortium, Bentley will help set de facto technical guidelines and taxonomies, publish reference frameworks, develop requirements for new standards, and share use cases to maximise the benefits of digital twins. Bentley will be working alongside other early innovators, including the US Air Force Research Laboratory and New South Wales Government, Australia.
Bentley’s collaboration with Digital Twins Consortium and its global ecosystem of digital twin users underscores its commitment to advancing an open-source platform for digital twins, which began with its release of iModel.js at its ‘Year in Infrastructure 2018 Conference’.
Adam Klatzkin, Vice President, Business Development, iTwin Services, Bentley Systems said, “No one knows what a digital twin is going to be five years from now, but it is a safe bet that it will be connected to more systems than is possible today. Users want the flexibility to change as requirements change and as new things become possible. In software terms, that means being open. It is important for organisations to take an open approach when they are selecting digital twin technologies to work with.”
“We are delighted that Bentley will bring its infrastructure industry and open-source expertise to our global ecosystem of Digital Twin Consortium members,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Digital Twin Consortium.
