In this Forbes article, Nikita Shamgunov, SingleStore co-founder & co-CEO, discusses the importance of digital twins.
While digital twins are frequently associated with industrial and heavy machinery use cases, a digital twin can be built for any business or product. Digital twins can also be found in consumer electronics and financial services.
Nikita explains that for a digital twin to work, a business must create a live mirror, or clone, of all the data that is flowing through the veins of the enterprise. The organization must consolidate that data and implement a single pane of glass across all data services, providing a complete view of the business. This, he adds, requires the business to embrace modern data management, which creates the foundation for these next-generation capabilities.
