New Book Provides Detailed Guide to Building Real-World Solutions with Azure Digital Twins

Introducing Building Industrial Digital Twins: Design, develop, and deploy digital twin solutions for real-world industries using Azure Digital Twins by Pieter van Schalkwyk and Shyam Varan Nath 

Dallas, TX, November 2, 2021 – Digital twin technology enables organizations to create digital representations of physical entities such as assets, systems, and processes throughout their life cycle. It improves asset performance, utilization, and safe operations and reduces manufacturing, operational, and maintenance costs. 

 In Building Industrial Digital Twins, industry veterans Pieter van Schalkwyk and Shyam Varan Nath, introduce readers to the concept of digital twins and set them on a path to develop a digital twin strategy to positively influence business outcomes in their organization. 

The book provides detailed guidance on how to use the Microsoft Azure Digital Twins platform for a digital twin development and deployment along with sample code files available on Github.  By the end of this book, readers will have developed the skills to build and deploy a digital twin prototype, to demonstrate, assess, and monitor their assets at specific stages in the asset life cycle.
