CoDigital, has welcomed ‘digital twin’ expert, Regine Deleu.

Regine joins from Auckland Transport where she was head of digital transformation and led the creation of a digital twin of the organisation. 

An organisation digital twin is a virtual mirror image of a company or structure, which includes all processes, systems, people and live data. Combining all of this information a digital twin determines how that organisation would operate most efficiently, and simulates the impact of a decision on real outcomes of that company or structure. It is the basis for all future change management.

“Digital twin methodology is next stage enterprise architecture and will help Governments and organisations around the world use digital representation to understand how they can improve the way they work,” says Janine Doherty, CEO, CoDigital. 

“A digital twin will underpin complex change management to create efficiencies, but also to benefit people and the planet. It is a tool which will enable a ‘look into the future’ of what best practice looks like for that organisation or Government - on all levels".   

“I am so excited to welcome Regine to CoDigital as she is an absolute expert in this field,” says Doherty.

“As the world digitises at pace, and with the customer and citizen at the centre of everything, Governments and organisations need to rapidly find ways to deliver outcomes in the most efficient and effective way. A digital twin is not only a holistic and precise way to do this - it is cost effective.” 

Prior to her three years at Auckland Transport, Regine spent over six years working for the New Zealand Government collaborating across departments to lead and deliver an overarching digital framework. Regine did this to align and optimise government services while ensuring transparency and accountability, and put the welfare of citizens at the forefront of decision making. 

Regine has worked in London where she led the merger of systems and processes following a significant take over in the insurance sector and subsequently designed a cloud based global insurance platform for the merged entity, and as a senior consultant at Oracle in Ireland. 

Regine qualified in Master of Computer Science and Bachelor of Engineering, Computer Science in her home country of Belgium, and subsequently worked in the telecommunications sector during a period of significant modernisation and M&A. 

“I believe it is in the best interests of our society if investments in technology and change are cost-effective, sustainable, aligned with the organisation’s strategic goals - but most importantly underpin a values based approach to success,” says Doherty. 

“I am looking forward to working with Janine and the team at CoDigital to help our clients achieve that.”
