A digital twin is a virtual representation of a real-world object or system. Such a digital carbon copy gives developers many interesting opportunities. For instance, they can test their software, and they can run all kind of simulations and what-if scenarios on the digital twin long before the physical system is available. This way they can drastically reduce development time and boost first time right deployment.
Digital twinning is applicable in many sectors, from manufacturing and maintenance, to automotive and even healthcare. But the promising concept also scores very high on the Gartner hype cycle; it is right on the peak of inflated expectations, while successful use cases are still low in number.
