The term “digital twin” is apt and descriptive; it refers to a digital representation (or “twin”) of a thing, person, system or process. But while the name itself is simple and straightforward, what can be accomplished with digital twins is anything but.

Industries ranging from finance to retail to healthcare—and every sector in between, including government—are finding creative, innovative uses for digital twins. Advances in the technology are or may soon be improving patient outcomes and customer experiences and helping organizations streamline processes, cut costs and more. Below, 18 members of Forbes Technology Council explain ways digital twins can be leveraged in multiple industries to support human workers and the people they serve.

1. Delivering Real-Time Insights And Controls

In the post-enterprise resource planning era, organizations are able to instrument their entire operations with digital twins in real time without having to rearchitect systems and data. Using data mesh, app fabrics and composable apps, tech leaders are able to deliver real-time insights and controls that orchestrate artificial technology and automation for unprecedented performance, awareness and agility. – Jim Barrett, Edge Total Intelligence
