DNV GL’s digital asset ecosystem

Your trusted partner


Are you up for the paradigm shift?


Inspired by a broader view SOFTWARE 03

THE PARADIGM SHIFT Past success is no guarantee of future success. Solutions of the future must be based on a broader view and a vision of better ways of working, combined with the knowledge of how to make them happen. This includes everything from developing algorithms and coding to the massive shifts necessary to lay the foundation for new solutions for businesses and for people. Since 1864, DNV GL has enabled organizations to advance the safety and sustainability of their businesses. Over the last five decades we have also gained a solid position as a trusted third party software vendor, solving technical and operational challenges related to industrial assets. We are proud of our list of achievements, including research, development, best practice recommendations, implementations and partnerships with our customers.

Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning opens up opportunities that previously were unthinkable. Domain knowledge and expertise together form the necessary foundation to realize the new possibilities. With our customers we are building the competence and understanding that will be the basis of new business models and digital work processes. I encourage you to read more in the following pages about our digital asset ecosystems, the next step toward this paradigm shift.

Our value proposition is strong, and is the basis of further growth. Simultaneously, the way that we deliver value is changing. We are now seeing a clear paradigm shift that is brought on by advances in information technology, relying on totally new networks and new ways of working. Cloud solutions offer limitless computing power and storage capacity. The additional power made available through the

YOUR CHALLENGES ARE OUR CHALLENGES The businesses we work with are confronted with many challenges: increasing complexity, fluctuating market conditions, sharper competition, steadily stricter regulations and growing stakeholder demands. We take on these challenges. Disruptive technologies are bringing immense changes to the decision-making processes. Changes are evident in numerous ways, including in how businesses communicate, both internally and externally. This affects the basic structure of our workplaces and how decisions are made.

in productivity and efficiency of which we are just starting to see the contours.

Companies can increase innovation by breaking down the silos within their own organizations. Relationships with customers and other stakeholders have become extremely dynamic. Businesses are always ‘on’ in the communication loop, and keeping close dialogues with customers is essential. Decisions are made in real time, step by step.

The changing face of risk Risk has historically been evaluated upfront during design stages and at intermittent intervals during operations: a static snapshot that can be archived for months or years.

Data complexity We are seeing an exponential increase in the amount of data on which important decisions are based. The sheer volume of this data, its complexity, fluid nature and the difficulty in extracting the truly significant pieces of data, will be a growing task. Using the information in the most productive way, in other words becoming data smart, will bring gains

Companies that fail to see that a new direction is needed and keep following conventional wisdom in their industries will not be competitive in the long run.

We are steadily gaining insight that makes us leaner and more able to bring risk levels into day-to-day decision-making – combining insights and data from several sources and applications that have previously been seen as distinct and separate domains. This brings a more dynamic environment into play, giving us an opportunity to optimize operations and manage risk from leveraged real-time information, providing a holistic view.

Risk management and safety Digital excellence will lead to many new opportunities, but there is also a new set of risks to consider. The number of entry points to IT infrastructure and asset sensor instrumentation and communication is growing exponentially, leading to many more vulnerabilities. ‘Drowning’ in high volume, real-time data is another risk. If you are not equipped to make use of it, it can have a negative effect on performance. Combined with domain expertise, our solutions are the basis of smart risk management and safer operations. Your team will ultimately be positioned to make better decisions based on efficient and accurate data analytics. With timely preventive barriers, you will be able to avert unsafe conditions that have potentially severe consequences. Our risk management and safety solutions cover areas such as: ■■ Security of supply ■■ Compliance ■■ Safer operations ■■ Asset and system reliability ■■ Quality, health, safety and environment (QHSE)

DNV GL’s DIGITAL ASSET ECOSYSTEM Our digital asset ecosystem offers a completely new generation of advanced predictive analytics. The integration of asset analytics applications enables reuse of data between different types of analyses and provides the foundation of a more collaborative, effective and innovative way of working with models in real time. This seamless platform for collaboration is a network of interconnecting and interacting data, software and hardware relating to a system or asset. As a data custodian, the ecosystem collects, cleans, aligns and quality assures data. The data may come from many sources, e.g. asset databases, structural analyses, inspection and environmental data, as well as from connected equipment and sensors (the Internet of Things). The input may also come from unstructured data sources, including social and news media streams, email, reports and documents. With the digital asset ecosystem you will have the most up-to-date information to optimize performance and deliver business results. Central to the ecosystem is the digital twin, which is a virtual image of your asset that brings experts together on one platform. This provides powerful insight and analytics that help you make better decisions.

DIGITAL TWIN In today’s tough business environment in assetintensive industries such as shipping, oil and gas and energy, companies are looking at innovations that drive efficiency and reduce costs while effectively managing operational risk and safety. The use of predictive analytics can support compliance, help reduce unscheduled downtimes, improve efficiency and lower environmental impact.

Simultaneously, the challenges of managing and using the growing amounts of data for analytics are rapidly increasing. Poor information management is often a hidden cost, accounting for up to a fifth of operational budgets, while a single unscheduled downtime can cost millions of dollars per day. At a time when margins are low, this can make or break the operational viability of an asset. Data smart Data smart asset solutions are a key to improved business performance and risk management. Central to our next-generation offering, and supporting an ecosystem of asset-centric engineering applications, is the concept of a cloud-based digital twin. Our digital twin is a virtual image of an asset, maintained throughout the lifecycle and easily accessible at any time. Combined with advanced analytical tools and machine learning, the digital twin will provide a platform that changes the traditional way of how we look at the analysis of asset condition and performance. Experts working together The digital twin is a seamless platform that will enhance information management and collaboration, where the experts can work together, providing powerful analysis, insight and diagnostics that minimize risk. How the digital twin will bring experts together: ■■ Anytime, anywhere access to a common view of the asset via a cloud based platform ■■ Updated throughout the lifecycle with real-time information ■■ Providing Information integrity by breaking data silos ■■ Early insight into potential conflicts enhances efficiency The digital twin is a central part of our digital asset ecosystem and will enable a new generation of advanced predictive analytics.
