Atos and Bentley Systems Announce Strategic Partnership to Create Digital Twins for Owner-operators of Industrial and Infrastructure Assets

 

Paris, London — 15 October 2018, Year in Infrastructure Conference

Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, and Bentley Systems, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced a strategic partnership through which they will offer a complete solution to create and operate Digital Twins on behalf of industry and infrastructure asset owners.

Atos’ global experience and expertise in digital transformation together with Bentley’s infrastructure, engineering, reality modelling and asset performance software portfolio will enable businesses to take advantage of fully-integrated and managed Digital Twins as a Cloud-based service.

This new offering will support owner-operators meet their business KPIs through the following features and benefits:

  • Full immersive visibility of assets – with up-to-date 3D models of assets via drone-enabled scans,
  • Real-time monitoring - to predict asset performance and avoid failures,
  • Performance analysis - to maximise asset availability, increase productivity, ensure optimum performance and ultimately extend life of asset in field
  • Remote operation of assets – in the case of dangerous or inaccessible assets
  • Operational training (for immersive VR environments)
  • Supports decision-making on asset operational strategies

Markus Schaffhauser, Atos Global Business and Platform Solutions CTO, said, “We have been impressed at the capabilities of Bentley’s software and how well it meshes with our expertise in digital transformation, to now deliver innovative services for industrial and infrastructure asset owners. The Atos-Bentley partnership has gotten off to a fast start, and I am convinced that our digital twin services will be of tremendous value to owners.”

CEO of Bentley Systems, Greg Bentley, said, “I believe that our collaboration with Atos can help owner-operators to really jump-start their ‘going digital’ ambitions, enabling and taking advantage of both immersive visualization and analytical visibility. Atos’ vast expertise in digital data integration, along with their global reach, make them the ideal partner for digital twin cloud services.”

Bentley and Atos have previously worked together on several manufacturing client projects, which brought together Atos’ expertise in system integration and data capture and analytics with Bentley’s reality modelling software.

This partnership was initiated through the Atos and Siemens Global Strategic Alliance, which maximizes the combined strength of Siemens’ products and solutions with Atos’ experience and expertise in enabling IT services to support their digital transformation, notably in the field of IoT services, Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity. In 2016, Bentley Systems also entered into a Strategic Alliance with Siemens to enlarge their respective offerings for infrastructure and industry to the benefit of the end-customers. Since that time, Bentley and Siemens have jointly invested in the development of new solutions including for digitalization of discrete and process manufacturing, power transmission and distribution, railway engineering, and power generation.
