Architecture and technology platform

The SAP Digital Twin is based on a service-oriented cloud platform.

The technology platform comprises a collection of components running on the SAP Cloud Platform using SAP IoT Application Services. These components, and their corresponding integration architecture, are generic across asset types and business domains. Domain specific applications, such as SAP Digital Twin for Windpower, will use these resources, with the possibility of further customization towards specific clients.

The May 2017 release will be based on the following technology components:

  • SAP Cloud Platform, including SAP IoT Application Enablement Services
  • FEDEM structural analysis stream component running the Digital Twins
  • A domain / scenario specific application layer on top providing the domain specific data models and enabling the domain specific business scenarios
