Bentley Systems, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, said it has joined hands with Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, to offer a complete solution for creating and operating digital twins on behalf of industry and infrastructure asset owners.

Atos’ global experience and expertise in digital transformation together with Bentley’s infrastructure, engineering, reality modeling and asset performance software portfolio will enable the businesses to take advantage of fully-integrated and managed Digital Twins as a cloud-based service, said a statement from Bentley.

This new offering will support owner-operators meet their business key performance indicators (KPIs) through the following features and benefits:

•Full immersive visibility of assets – with up-to-date 3D models of assets via drone-enabled scans
•Real-time monitoring – to predict asset performance and avoid failures
•Performance analysis – to maximize asset availability, increase productivity, ensure optimum performance and ultimately extend life of asset in field
•Remote operation of assets – in the case of dangerous or inaccessible assets
•Operational training (for immersive VR environments)
•Supports decision-making on asset operational strategies

Markus Schaffhauser, the global business and platform solutions CTO at Atos, said: "We have been impressed at the capabilities of Bentley’s software and how well it meshes with our expertise in digital transformation, to now deliver innovative services for industrial and infrastructure asset owners."

"The Atos-Bentley partnership has gotten off to a faststart, and I am convinced that our digital twin services will be of tremendous value to owners," he noted.

CEO Greg Bentley said: "I believe that our collaboration with Atos can help owner-operators to really jump-start their ‘going digital’ ambitions, enabling and taking advantage of both immersive visualization and analytical visibility. Atos’ vast expertise in digital data integration, along with their global reach, make them the ideal partner for digital twin cloud services."

"Bentley and Atos have previously worked together on several manufacturing client projects, which brought together Atos’ expertise in system integration and data capture and analytics with Bentley’s reality modelling software," he noted.

This partnership was initiated through the Atos and Siemens Global Strategic Alliance, which maximises the combined strength of Siemens’ products and solutions with Atos’ experience and expertise in enabling IT services to support their digital transformation, notably in the field of IoT services, AI and Cybersecurity, noted Bentley.

"In 2016, Bentley Systems also entered into a strategic alliance with Siemens to enlarge their respective offerings for infrastructure and industry to the benefit of the end-customers," said Bentley.

"Since that time, Bentley and Siemens have jointly invested in the development of new solutions including for digitalization of discrete and process manufacturing, power transmission and distribution, railway engineering, and power generation," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
