Getting transformation right in today's competitive world is critical, and one key factor is the ability to manage and use data to achieve enterprise Strategic Objectives. A Digital Twin is often at the very heart of the metamorphosis. Every single product has definable characteristics in the real world, and the Digital Twin combines and portrays the attributes virtually. In a perfect world, the Digital Twin would capture every single attribute of a product or system and its processes. In reality, the technology is still evolving to accomplish this vision and we're not there yet. That doesn't mean manufacturers can't proceed with and derive tremendous value from a simpler virtual model.

Optimizing and streamlining server utilization through virtualization represents one particularly exciting example. We found that one of the most popular usage models for virtualization is to drive down server procurements in development, test and production environments.
