You Are Not Alone
When designing infrastructure, all competent organizations keep an eye on future-proofing. A brand-new highway system could quickly become an unending debilitating expense if the bridges are substandard and need frequent repairs. Emerging technology is key to creating intelligent, sustainable designs that can endure future uncertainty and provide cost-effective services for many decades to come.
Frost & Sullivan, a growth strategy consulting and research firm, recently released their study “An Open Platform for Infrastructure Digital Twins,” where they share findings from the state of the market to strategic gains being realized.
The study notes that “the success of digital twins will be heavily influenced by the level of engagement from infrastructure organizations and asset owner-operators, and the creation of a robust ecosystem of technology developers serving the infrastructure community.”
Of course, intelligent, sustainable infrastructure is still a significant expense. Though advancing technology can take your investments as far as possible in the long term, the up-front cost and effort needed to incorporate new workflows can be intimidating, especially to stakeholders who might object to trying something new and relatively unproven.
