Just as there is a movement in the water/wastewater industry from grey to green infrastructure, there is an analogous movement to more effectively use data/IT infrastructure.
This webinar defines the concept of Smarter Water Management, i.e., routine use of data already being collected and stored in combination with analytics and visualization and what that means to the industry; the positive and mitigating effects on water scarcity, failing infrastructure, non-revenue water, sewer overflows, and water resource management; and applications across the world.
- Use water/wastewater data better for increased operational efficiency
- Realize improved operations with GIS, CMMS/EAM
- Use data more effectively to maintain infrastructure
- Move from reactive to proactive decision making
- Address challenges of an aging workforce
