Reimagine Your Digital Estates

Empower Teams, Stakeholders, and the Supply Chain

Gain the visibility and insight needed to improve decision-making and business outcomes

Make Data Accessible and Actionable

Connect physical and virtual worlds to better plan, design, construct, and operate digital estates.

Connect, Combine, and Manage Enterprise Data

Connect, combine, and manage data—regardless of source, format, scale, or complexity—including point clouds, reality and BIM models, and operational data from business systems and IoT-connected devices. Provide spatial context and visibility of critical operational assets, proposed developments, and active projects in real time to deliver the insight needed by different stakeholders to digitize business-critical workflows.

Digitize Workflows

Visually immerse teams through a single, spatial view of operational assets, proposed developments, and active projects. Explore relationships between real-world objects, monitor progress on projects, minimize the time that personnel spend in dangerous or hostile locations through remote inspections, and/or optimize operational scenarios without impacting on the performance of in-service assets.

Gain Insight and Improve Decisions

Inspect, analyze, and report on multidiscipline data across the lifetime of assets. Save teams and stakeholders the time and effort finding and validating information, gaining the visibility and insight needed to improve their planning, design, delivery, and operational performance decisions.

We are helping to create a better life for citizens using knowledge-based discussions and making decisions based on that data.

  • Cities
  • Reimagine Cities with Digital Twins

    Collaborate with asset and building owners, government agencies, developers, and members of the public. Efficiently plan and visualize at city or district scale; optimize transportation and pedestrian mobility; develop resilience strategies; manage public works projects; and support a better quality of life for citizens.

    Digitally Advance Cities, Districts, and Regions

    Unify and integrate data regardless of source, format, or complexity. Start with data that you already own, adding more as demand or capacity dictates—including geospatial data, reality models, and 2D and 3D CAD and BIM information, as well as big data from IoT-connected devices.

    Collaborate and Effectively Gather Feedback

    Collaborate with asset and building owners, government agencies, developers, and members of the public. Conduct global or local project overviews with teams and stakeholders—publishing to the web, mobile devices, or desktops to capture comments and feedback that inform decision-making.

    Improve Decisions and Outcomes

    Improve communication, engagement, and decisions for city planning, urban development, and city operations. Create and use smart dashboards and project portals; integrate live information from IoT-connected sensors, feeding data into 3D maps or project views; and view attributes and metadata within objects and components.

  • Campus
  • Digitize Corporate and Educational Campuses

    Collaborate with campus stakeholders, government agencies, developers, and the public. Efficiently plan and visualize at campus-scale; optimize crowd and transportation mobility; develop resilience strategies; manage civil works projects; and support a better on-campus experience.

    Bridge Data Silos

    Create a living digital twin from existing engineering, spatial, and enterprise data, including CAD, BIM, and reality models, geospatial information, and operational data from IoT-connected devices.

    Improve Data Visibility

    Create, visualize, and analyze different planning and operational scenarios through a 3D digital twin, increasing visibility and providing the insight needed to optimize decisions.

    Create Smarter Spaces

    Reconsider traditional approaches to urban planning, use of space, and mobility, modeling and simulating the relationships between people, places, buildings, and devices.

    Virtual Campus

    A fully integrated virtual model allows facility managers to visualize accurate locations of work orders, increase response time, and improve performance for more efficient asset maintenance and campus management.

    “Siemensstadt 2.0, hasn’t been started in the pandemic. It started long before with the plan to conserve the area where Siemens was born, where we have huge and traditional buildings, factories, research and development locations, and headquarters to open it up for the city and also for partners. So, it’s like a campus, and it’s the first time a campus project of that size is in one digital thread along the whole lifecycle of design, construction, and maintenance.”
