Azure Digital Twins

Build next-generation IoT solutions that model entire environments in real time

Create comprehensive digital models of entire environments

Azure Digital Twins is an Internet of Things (IoT) platform that enables you to create a digital representation of real-world things, places, business processes and people. Gain insights that help you drive better products, optimise operations and costs, and create breakthrough customer experiences.

Open modelling language to create custom domain models of any connected environment using Digital Twins Definition Language

Live execution environment to bring your digital twins to life in a live graph representation

Input from IoT and business systems to connect assets, including IoT devices, using Azure IoT Hub, Logic Apps and REST APIs

Output to Time Series Insights, storage and analytics using event routes to downstream services, including Azure Synapse Analytics

Track the past and help predict the future of any connected environment

Easily model and create digital representations of connected environments with an open modelling language. Model buildings, factories, farms, energy networks, railways, stadiums – even entire cities. Bring these digital twins to life with a live execution environment, building dynamic business logic and data processing on a robust event system. Unlock actionable insights with powerful query APIs, and seamlessly integrate with Azure data, analytics and AI services.
