Bentley elevates participation in digital twin consortium

By on 16 December, 2020

Bentley Systems has become a founding member of the digital twin consortium, aimed at advancing interoperability.

The move will see the firm increase its involvement and collaboration in the initiative, which comprises representatives from government, academia and industry.

Bentley will become a member of the consortium’s steering committee, contribute to the strategic roadmap, working groups and governance processes to advance discussions on interoperability, file interchange formats and other initiatives to increase uptake and utility of digital twins.

It’s a shrewd strategic move that reflects the firm’s recognition of open standards and formats as a key barrier to uptake, reflected in its iTwin activities — the software platform, developer conferences and partner programs aimed at utilising open solutions and gaining traction with the open source development community.

“We are delighted that Bentley is a founding member of Digital Twin Consortium and is also a member of our steering committee,” said Dr. Richard Soley, executive director, Digital Twin Consortium.

“The consortium looks forward to high-level guidance on digital twin technologies and continued contributions based on Bentley’s experience and knowledge of the infrastructure industry.”
