Azure Digital Twins in a Nutshell

English Intermediate Internet of Things

Digital twins make it possible to simulate, analyze and test scenarios digitally, before implementing changes in the real world. There are already huge advantages in being able to digitally monitor and control physical objects near or far and at any time. It also possible to explore and experiment further on these objects by building virtual models of them. Digital twins allow engineers to work with objects in ways that would be impossible in the real world. Nowadays, Microsoft Azure offers this capability on its Internet of Things (IoT) platform with Azure Digital Twins. This technology enable spaces and individual devices to be modelled and let users develop scalable, reusable structures that can combine digital and physical data. This presentation is about Azure Digital Twins: the main business benefits and technical advantages. Presentation demonstrate the key features of technology the context of Microsoft Azure with real use cases and live demos. This talk will cover also the major functionalities where can see the benefits of Digital Twins for Azure IoT Solutions: - Device configuration management - Device provisioning - Software update - Triggering of alarms
