Digital Enterprise: Intelligently linking and analyzing data for fast and confident decisions

The industrial world is facing rapidly changing challenges. Our resources are finite, and we all need to do more with less. Digitalization and automation are the game changers to meet these challenges on the way to Industry 4.0. It is essential to collect, understand and use the massive amount of data created in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The Digital Enterprise is doing exactly this by combining the real and the digital worlds. As a result, the infinite amount of data allows us to use our finite resources efficiently and with that make the industry more sustainable.

How to become a true Digital Enterprise

Digitalization and automation are the gamechangers for mastering the challenges of today and tomorrow. What else does it take? Discover how to turn your digital journey into a success story.

Combining the real and the digital worlds

Combining the real and the digital worlds makes it possible to seamlessly integrate the entire value chain from design to realization, while optimizing with a continuous flow of data. A true Digital Enterprise is able to harness the unlimited power of data by gaining valuable insights to make fast and confident decisions – and to create best-in-class products through efficient production.


In a true Digital Enterprise, there is balance between security and openness. In order to protect all the continuous, multidirectional data flows, we incorporate a multi-layered security concept at every step. At the same time, there is a seamless flow of data between stakeholders to achieve collaboration like never before.

Comprehensive Digital Twin

Working with our comprehensive Digital Twin makes it possible to integrate the entire product lifecycle – and if required – even the factory and plant lifecycle. The generated performance data captured in the physical world, enables a continuous and open loop of optimization for both the product and the production.


This comprehensive Digital Twin approach integrates all necessary components, even including a Digital Twin of the building, which you can use to optimize the performance and efficiency of your plant’s energy and physical infrastructure.

Following the Digital Threads

Digital Threads are the map for the digital journey based on specific business workflows. They digitally connect all tasks and processes of the entire lifecycles of product and production to solve the challenges. The Digital Threads provide digitalized processes and revolutionize the way products are developed, produced, and optimized. 


The Digital Enterprise enables companies of every size and sector to integrate and digitalize their business processes with the Digital Threads. Companies can start with digitalization at any step, for greenfield and brownfield plants, and based on standardized and open interfaces.

Bringing together Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT)

The Digital Enterprise brings together processes that were previously separate. It breaks down traditional silos and helps bridge the gaps between software and hardware, IT and OT, shop floor and top floor.


This offers great optimization potential – including technologies such as artificial intelligence for predictive maintenance, precise condition monitoring and improved quality.
