Digital transformation specialist, Capgemini, is to enter into an alliance partnership with Autodesk, to deploy a new cloud-enabled digital twin platform
The new Building Information Modelling (BIM) platform, ReflectIoD, for building and infrastructure operators integrates 1D to 3D, point cloud, geographical information, and Internet of Things (IoT) data.
Capgemini’s solutions, particularly for the AEC sector, leverage model intelligence, digital workflows and powerful data insights to shape smart factories and assets, comfortable and secure buildings, and data-enabled infrastructure towards an efficient, sustainable and livable future.
Supported by Capgemini and Autodesk’s expertise, ReflectIOD will provide operators with consistent services from handover to operations, including design reviews in operations, progressive handover and commissioning, support for real-time diagnosis and inspections, IoT alerting to prevent fluctuations, remote assistance and asset revamping.
Jean-Pierre Petit, director of Digital Manufacturing at Capgemini said: “The essence of a digital twin is data-centric collaborations. Capgemini’s agreement with Autodesk will provide BIM operators with a unique cloud-enabled and secured digital twin platform. This collaboration gathers a unique set of digital transformation skills and technologies.”
The digital twin platform integrates Autodesk Forge APIs and geographical information systems, as well as Capgemini integration services and platforms.
It can be configured according to industry and project specific requirements and is adaptable to change following agile and incremental implementation.
Nicolas Mangon, vice president AEC Strategy & Marketing at Autodesk, added: “Autodesk is committed to enabling the value of BIM for the entire building lifecycle, from design through operations.
“Our partnership with Capgemini offers an exciting opportunity for operators to capture and derive more value from digital data created during design, construction, and operations to more efficiently manage their portfolios.”
