Global water technology company Xylem will showcase its portfolio of “decision intelligence” tools which harness the power of digital technologies to transform utility economics and operations at next week’s Global Leakage Summit in London.
Xylem said that as global water challenges intensify, new approaches are needed to create a step change improvement in water system performance. This new approach leverages the importance of data to inform better system-level choices while understanding and considering future outcomes for operations, maintenance and capital planning.
The solutions scan, predict, recommend and prioritize actions and help utilities make progress on the problems that matter most to the communities they serve:
- water accessibility
- environmental sustainability
Pedro Pina, Regional Director, Europe, at Xylem commented:
“Decision intelligence solutions use information to support dramatically better capital and operational decision-making, save money, reduce risk, protect the environment, and improve revenue recovery, driving real value for utilities and their customers.
“ It’s still early days, but more and more utilities around the world are harnessing data to deliver unprecedented value to their communities. Ultimately, our approach supports our clients’ commitment to public service – solving problems at scale using best-in-class technology – and affording us the opportunity of a lifetime to ‘solve water’ in communities around the world.”
Launched In 2018, Xylem’s Advanced Infrastructure Analytics platform focused on leveraging digital technologies to help transform the economics of managing water and solve critical water challenges.
The platform brings together a portfolio of advanced technologies to help customers better understand the state of their network infrastructure through condition assessments, identify and prioritize problem areas early in the cycle, and allocate resources accordingly to improve their return on investment and extend the life of their assets. The leading-edge digital solutions are driving compelling water, energy and cost efficiencies.
The presentation by Andrew Welsh, General Manager, Water Utilities, at Xylem at the Summit will look at how collecting data enables utility managers to make intelligent decisions, which in turn helps to manage risks and investments.
