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. Unlock new business opportunities by overcoming industrial data complexities:

Create relationships between data with different naming conventions and across many systems with AI-powered contextualization services.
Evolve from vendor lock-in and built-for-purpose solutions with pre-built extractors to industry-adopted solutions and an API-first approach.
Establish trust in digital twin solutions with data quality rules, data lineage, and access controls across all OT and IT data.
Incorporate video, image, infrared, and other unstructured data sources into digital twin solution development.



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.
