Azure Digital Twins

Model and interact with the real world

Build next-generation IoT (Internet of Things) solutions using Azure Digital Twins to model the relationships and interactions among people, places, and devices. This spatial intelligence platform includes predefined and extensible twin object models to build virtual representations of the physical world and contextually aware solutions specific to your industry.

Build contextually-aware IoT solutions

Azure Digital Twins is a platform that provides organizations with the foundation they need to create the next generation of IoT solutions. Throughout our journey in IoT, we’ve learned that many digital transformation stories can be simplified by having context about the physical world prior to connecting devices. With Azure Digital Twins organizations can do just that; build repeatable, scalable experiences that correlate data from digital sources and the physical world. This video describes how Azure Digital Twins enables a comprehensive digital model of the relationships and interactions between people, places, and devices that can be applied to any physical environment.

Build digital twin solutions that better serve people’s needs

Virtually replicate the physical world by modeling the relationships between people, places, and devices in a spatial intelligence graph. Create uniquely relevant experiences by correlating data across the digital and physical worlds. Discover opportunities to improve consumer experiences, create new efficiencies, and improve the spaces in which people live, work, and play.

Accelerate and simplify the creation of digital twin solutions

Azure Digital Twins offers predefined data schema that are aligned to a solution’s domain-specific needs and that can accelerate and simplify its creation. Save on development costs and quickly deploy your solution. Make your space smarter—whether it’s a hospital, a stadium, a factory, or the electrical grid that connects them.

Automate actions in a physical space

Query data in the context of a space rather than from disparate sensors. Define and execute functions that generate notifications or events to specific endpoints within a space based on telemetry messages from a variety of devices and sensors. These powerful capabilities improve efficiency and conditions for the people who use the spaces.

Modernize and scale your business with confidence

Build digital twin solutions that scale and replicate across multiple tenants. Built-in support for multitenancy and nested tenancy helps secure your customers’ data. Access and identity management features such as role-based access control and Azure Active Directory further highlight our commitment to security, data privacy, and compliance.
