How Digital Twins Improve Accuracy & Boost Uptime

How Digital Twins Improve Accuracy & Boost Uptime


Digital transformation is happening now and it's happening fast. Some companies have perhaps thought they were making great strides in digital transformation, only to encounter significant roadblocks. Some didn’t have a business driver at the executive level to prioritize digital transformation prior to March 2020. Still others are in the early stages of accepting a new digital age.

Regardless of where your company is in the process, we can all agree that the industry is rapidly changing to accommodate for our new world. Most now see digital transformation as a true need, not a “nice-to-have in the future.” To take advantage of the transition our industry is in, companies have an opportunity to develop connected, accurate, and insightful digital processes and workflows from a massive amount of information sources.

To help you take advantage of these benefits, Vertex is providing free, online, 30-minute sessions to show you can harness the power of a digital twin in your everyday workflows. See how you can change the way your teams operate.


Changing the Way We Connect Smart Factories

Cloud-based connectivity is the future of Industry 4.0. With the power of Vertex, you can make your factory a true smart factory by embedding 3D visuals anywhere on your factory floor. Join our webcast on August 19 at 12:30pm CT to see how Vertex can help you:

Access work instructions aligned to 3D visuals at your fingertips

Improve engineering decisions with quantitative data

Optimize your factory logistics to achieve higher throughputs


Changing the Way We Visualize IoT

Visualize all the sensor information you need, at any scale. Gain access to 3D visuals feeding from your IoT devices to gain a complete understanding of a product’s performance. Join our webcast on August 26 at 12:30pm CT to see how Vertex can help you visualize IoT data to:

Identify improvements and maintain parts

Diagnose problems faster

Generate revenue through identifying issues, finding replacement parts, and enabling repairs


Changing the Way We Service Products

Give service techs the ability to immediately understand products and components, fill out service reports using 3D visuals, and provide serviceability improvement. Quickly visualize current jobs and get accurate, up-to-date work instructions from any device with full fidelity.


Join our webcast on September 02 at 12:30pm CT to learn how service teams can use 3D visuals to:

Identify and order parts quickly

Verify key work instructions and guidelines

Accelerate repairs, reduce defects, and increase quality


Changing the Way We Connect With Customers

Interactively make choices and see possible sales configurations in an instant with 3D visuals. Shorten the sales cycle and give the customer a rich, 3D visual of their order. Join our final webcast on September 09 at 12:30pm CT to learn how sales teams such as our customers at Terex:

Connect with customers to understand their product requests

Select the best configuration options by visualizing them in 3D

Shorten the sales cycle and create ownership at the point of sale

I hope you will take the time to attend the 30-minute “lunch-and-learn” sessions for initiatives that are most impactful to you.  Register today.

The New Imperative of Digital Transformation

Posted By James Price, Siemens Digital Industries Software, Thursday, June 11, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, June 9, 2020


The New Imperative of Digital Transformation


All around the world, we’re working from our homes and visiting friends via teleconferences. We’re embracing telehealth, ordering online, educating our children digitally, and even enjoying museums from a menu of screens.

No longer just forecasting a digital future, we’re living it. And so, the digital transformation that was once a strategic objective is now an exigent imperative.

Businesses with a strong digital strategy in place — combined with a commitment to fast-tracking its implementation — are better positioned to succeed in this new normal. Those that lack such a readiness for digital transformation risk getting left behind.

For that reason, Realize LIVE comes at just the right time. Realize Live, the virtual edition is happening 23-24 June. You can register now for two days of online sessions including thought-leadership keynotes, user experiences, best practice and hands-on training.  Users talking to users, with many world leading companies participating. Choose from 11 experiences and over 70+ sessions, you can personalize your experience around what matters most, and its free to attend!

This digital experience is designed to ensure that you are not only early adopters of best-in-class digital transformation tools, but you are efficient and proficient in their use. You’ll learn about product innovations that can optimize your business, you’ll hear how your peers are solving problems similar to your own, and you’ll fortify the connections that will support you in adapting to a world where almost every customer touchpoint is a digital one. 

You’ll learn how to apply these and other of-the-moment insights, as you navigate your business’s path to digital transformation.

Realize LIVE is offering a digital space for change, human-centered approaches, creativity and innovation, and ultimately, digital transformation. Here are the reasons why attending Realize LIVE can stimulate how you address your business problems of tomorrow, today:


·         The pace of change has long been accelerating. But what was once swift is now an all-out sprint.

To win in such a sprint requires speed and intensity alike. Expertise is critical, of course, but so too are the agility and bravery to identify emergent opportunities and make bold choices.

At Realize LIVE, a global user community will support you in navigating those choices, while keeping a laser-focus on your desired outcomes and targeted timelines.

  • Successful transformation must be fueled by a human-centered approach.

Design thinking alone won’t ensure businesses thrive in a post-pandemic world, but it’s a wise place to start.

Customers’ preferences, processes, and pain points have in many ways been wholly upended these past few months. Once-in-a-lifetime (we hope) moments like these create fertile ground for transformations that are vast in scope and human-centric in design.

At Realize LIVE, you’ll hear from Siemens experts, customers, and partners, who will share their views on human-centric design and help you identify fresh solutions that purposefully benefit your customers for both short- and long-term goals.

  •   Putting ideas into action makes sustainable solutions possible.

Customers today expect every company to offer the hyper-personalized, ultra-efficient “Amazon experience.” This spring, such an expectation was elevated to a veritable mandate.

In your business, how can you innovate with the scale and scope to meet customers’ needs in the short-term when the associated investment means you need to see benefits for the long-term?

In short, get going. Take this moment of urgency as a push to test your ideas and experiments in the real world. Seek feedback from a forward-thinking and ultra-connected user community and learn from stumbles — yours and others’ — along the way.

  • Digital transformation is good for business — but it’s also good for the global community.

At Realize LIVE, you’ll learn about the latest products, tools, and solutions, while also benefiting from inter- and intra-industry connections and collaboration. The experience will empower you to drive your business forward during these unprecedented times.

These times, however, call for more than just driving your business forward; they call for using digital transformation for the greater good, whenever and however you can.

It’s why Siemens has made many of its solutions available without cost, in the face of COVID-19. It’s why we’ve applied the power of our ecosystem to create innovative solutions for global issues including everything from sustainability to the current crisis.  

And it’s why we’re making Realize LIVE completely free, so more attendees than ever will have the tools and solutions to fast-track their digital transformation for a post-pandemic world.

Register now for your complimentary passes.

Five Ways to Get the Most Value out of Realize LIVE, the Virtual Edition

Posted By James Price, Siemens Digital Industries Software, Wednesday, May 20, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, May 19, 2020


Five Ways to Get the Most Value out of Realize LIVE, the Virtual Edition


As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to cause disruptions around the globe, Realize LIVE 2020 is moving from Las Vegas to well, the comfort of your own device. While the novel coronavirus makes it unsafe for us to gather face-to-face, we know that you don’t want to hit pause on your professional growth or your organization’s innovation. In fact, the current state of the world makes digital transformation even more of an imperative than ever before. 
We hope the five tips below will help you achieve your knowledge and networking objectives, so you may gain the greatest possible value from your virtual experience at Realize LIVE. 

Bring the whole team. When a face-to-face event requires multi-day travel, there are understandable limits on the number of delegates each company can send. When that event moves online, the barrier to entry is much lower. That’s even more true, now that Realize LIVE is a complimentary virtual event. 

Invite your colleagues to join you at this virtual experience, so you can advance your shared business goals together and more of your organization can be well-positioned to meet the challenges of tomorrow, today. The result will be a workforce that is more effective, efficient, and innovative. 

Engage. Realize LIVE will be a virtual experience — not a webinar. That important distinction means this is a participatory experience. Re-imagining how Realize LIVE can you bring you closer to your peers from across the globe. This digital experience will allow you to pose thoughtful questions in the Q&As, participate in the moderated live chats, bring candor and curiosity to each session and, above all, a commitment to fully partake in Realize LIVE Virtual 2020. 

Don’t forget, you can engage on Twitter and LinkedIn, too. After all, a key component of Realize LIVE is the spirit of our global community it engenders. 

Step 1. Keep the hashtag #RealizeLIVE handy
Step 2. Join the conversation online. 
Step 3. Introduce yourself.
Step 4. Ask questions. 
Step 5. Share your experience. 

Realize LIVE, the Virtual Edition will enable the online back-and-forth conversations, which fuel real, global relationships. 

Network virtually. Speaking of real-world relationships, a 2019 Realize LIVE attendee said,
“The best is interacting with different people, learning how they've solved problems. It’s people down in the trenches that are actually working on the products that are discovering and solving issues.” 

Like our physical event, this virtual experience will enhance your opportunity for connection and collaboration. By participating in a networking experience, specifically designed for the virtual setting, you’ll be able to connect meaningfully with people who can inspire and advise. 

Pace yourself. The cadence of a well-designed face-to-face event ensures your eyes don’t glaze over when critical content is being delivered. 

Create a similar cadence at your desk, alternating between keynote and breakout sessions of varying lengths (you’ve got 75+ sessions coming your way across 13 tracks), moments of fun, and of course, those networking chats. The key to this virtual event is to map your own, tailored digital journey through this two-day schedule, finding innovative takeaways that will work best for you and your business goals.  

Chart the future. In the new normal that COVID-19 has created, human-centered innovation has become vital to businesses’ success across many industries. Looking ahead, it’s safe to assume this kind of rapid innovation focused on the greater good is here to stay.

The knowledge and insights you gather at Realize LIVE will not only help you understand what to expect in the wake of this crisis, it will also help you prepare for it — with the kind of expertise, agility, and humanity you’ll need to be successful. Your key-takeaways will ready you for the place where today meets tomorrow.
