Turn operational data into insights for real-time decision making

Put the power of digital innovation in the hands of all your experts—in R&D, product, engineering, central or plant floor operations, supply chain, and aftermarket services—with an operational digital twin powered by Cognite Data Fusion®.

Cognite's business impact

Cognite Data Fusion® turns disparate data sources into an operational digital twin that's usable by all domains and scalable across your enterprise. The digital twin makes operations more predictable, sustainable, and resilient. 

Asset performance

5-10% increase in Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and asset utilization

Product quality

5-10% fewer production deviations


15-20% reduction in energy consumption

Time to market

10-25X faster time to deploy solutions into live production use

Trusted by leaders in manufacturing

Evolve from planned to predictive maintenance

“State detection ML models in Cognite Data Fusion give us an early warning when there's something abnormal in the milling process so that we can respond quickly and ensure that the product quality is not affected.“

- Marit Torp, Process Engineer, Elkem Carbon Solutions

Growth powered by Industrial DataOps

“From day one after we went live, the data became much more accessible and manageable for the team, and we have saved a lot of time when doing analyses. Our engineers are enabled.“

- Håvard Knappskog, Automation Architect, Arbaflame

Boosting production, maintenance, and product quality

“We have managed to increase utilization by more than 20% - and that means more than NOK 50 million a year - with Cognite Data Fusion.“

- Rolf Thu, Head of IT Solutions and Partnerships at Aarbakke

Breaking down data silos to unlock valuable insights

“While we see great value for one individual plant, we managed to create a view across all our global assets, enabling a holistic view across the supply chain. We can drill down to sub-second data on individual equipment.“

- Ole Thoresen, Director of Digitalization and Improvements at Aker BioMarine


Bring to market data-driven maintenance services with certified quality

“Our maintenance optimization services provide our customers improved asset reliability, availability, and a potential to reduce OPEX by ≈ 25%.“

- Martin Hemmer, Specialist Engineer at MHWirth



Operational Digital Twin

The operational digital twin provides the foundation to build tailored solutions across domains. Cognite helps scale solutions, reduce time to value and establish trust in solutions by automating creating relationships across siloed data. Cognite’s unique AI-powered contextualization services provide the foundation to make data self-service for use in tools and applications your teams already know.

Process and production optimization

Cognite Data Fusion® offers a managed, automated, and intelligent way to collect and contextualize industrial IT, ET, and OT data. With solutions that integrate R&D, process, and plant engineering and operations, you can anticipate, identify, and correct critical-to-quality (CTQ) parameters before they affect the bottom line. 

  • Shift left, get it right the first time: Predict process outcomes and get your products to the market faster with hybrid AI models that combine physics and data science. 
  • Sustainability by design: Design your products and processes by taking emissions, energy, and resource consumption into account from the start.
  • Traceability: Track your products and materials through your value network and eliminate inefficiencies with a digital representation of the physical product life cycle.
  • Recipe optimization: Produce golden batches and reduce costly, time-consuming pilots with real-time insights from contextualized data, physics-based simulations, and quality inspection tools.
