Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the most excellent enterprise of them all? The one with Software AG’s new Enterprise Digital Twin framework, of course.
We have discussed the digital twin in previous blogs; it is a virtual representation of your physical assets. When applied to an enterprise, it enables it to create a digital representation mirroring the business operating model with its characteristics for the organization, processes and assets.
Built on the ARIS Process Transformation and Management platform as the foundation for the Enterprise Digital Twin Framework, enterprises can gain significant end-to-end visibility and visualization of their operations. This combination of virtual and physical worlds enables enterprises to more efficiently manage the critical interdependencies and interrelationships between people, processes and systems. This is fundamental to coping with the complex challenges associated with digital transformation.
Marc Kerremans, Research Director at Garner, said: “Program and portfolio management struggle to represent, prioritize, guide and monitor underlying business operational scenarios, and struggle to adapt their program and project plans to moving strategic and operational targets.”
By using Software AG’s Enterprise Digital Twin Framework, these enterprises can gain the transparency required across their operations to make better decisions that will result in improved business outcomes and initiatives. The ARIS-based Framework ensures that processes are tightly linked and connected across the enterprise with real-life data.
Software AG’s Enterprise Digital Twin Framework can create a virtual copy of all aspects of an enterprise, which gets richer with every operation and leads to continuous business improvements. This includes business strategy and planning; transformation empowerment; IT and IoT alignment; process mining and intelligence; customer journey management; and risk and compliance.
It leads to better handling of threats before they negatively impact the business as well as the prevention of possible downtime, the creation of new opportunities, the provision of important insights on system performance, and the simulation of future possibilities.
The Gartner report further noted: “Any digital business initiative, whether transformational or a smaller change, requires the translation of desired business outcomes and customer experience measurements into operational indicators that can be used to monitor progress toward goals, even after program or project completion.”
Software AG’s Enterprise Digital Twin Framework can be used in several use-cases, for example:
- Supply Chain Management: Providing process chain visibility that enables end-to-end process excellence potentially achieving significant cost-savings
- Quality Management: Allowing enterprises to establish global, enterprise-wide standards for Quality Management Systems (QMS) and ensure that everyone is working from the same source of information
- Risk and Compliance: Delivering full control of overall processes, compliance and risks.
Look into the digital twin mirror to see where the future of your business will take you.
