Plan is to accelerate enterprises’ digital transformation through real-time 3D technology.

Capgemini and Unity, a platform for creating and growing real-time 3D (RT3D) content, have announced an expansion of their strategic alliance that will see Capgemini take on Unity’s Digital Twin Professional Services arm. Per the agreement, Unity’s Digital Twin Professional Services team will join and embed within Capgemini, forming a large pool of Unity enterprise developers.

The transaction will accelerate the iteration and implementation of the RT3D visualization software for the industrial application of digital twins. It will allow end users to envision, understand, and interact with physical systems - a key enabler for intelligent industry. The deal is expected to close in the second quarter of 2024.


Unity’s Digital Twin Professional Services team has worked with many companies over the past 5 years to develop real-time 3D solutions to drive business results. This agreement will extend the reach and scale of Unity’s software through Capgemini, allowing more organizations to expand the boundaries of this technology through the acceleration, adoption, and application of RT3D to build and scale immersive experiences, the companies report.

“Unity’s real-time 3D technology is the unequivocal industry standard for visualization across platforms and devices,” says William Rozé, CEO of Capgemini Engineering and Group Executive Board member. “This new agreement with Unity will allow Capgemini to embed 3D visualization software capabilities into our end-to-end business transformation services, to help clients realize the immediate and longer-term benefits of intelligent industry.”

“Unity has reached a point in its growth where the opportunity for us in the enterprise market has outpaced our ability to scale fast enough to meet client demand,” explains Jim Whitehurst, CEO, Unity. “With its scale and breadth of services – from design and engineering to business transformation and data expertise, Capgemini is well placed to unleash the full potential of Unity technology for enterprise clients across industries with specific use cases.”


As part of this agreement Capgemini plans to scale a range of sector-specific solutions that are currently in high demand. Particularly relevant for automotive, consumer products & retail, energy & utilities, aerospace & defense, healthcare & life sciences, and industrial products/manufacturing, tailored offerings are expected to include:

  • Simulation: A digital representation of an asset, facility or product that emulates its real-world counterpart through advanced modeling to provide real-time insights and simulate future scenarios.
  • Human Machine Interfaces: Interactive experiences for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), meters (gauge clusters), and additional screens.
  • Immersive Training: Engaging training experiences in interactive 3D or augmented or virtual reality (AR and VR) to enable better knowledge transfer and safer workplaces.
