Do you manage data?Or does data manage you?

Every second across energy, water, transportation, telecommunications and security, the Internet of Things produces staggering amounts of information. But what does it tell us, and where does it all go? It’s time for solutions that put you back in control.

Digital Infrastructure Unleashed

“Help us understand and implement a digital water program.”

The ask came from a water utility client that for years had amassed a tidal wave of data from electronic meters, system monitoring equipment and other technologies.

Built in the 1950s, the client’s treatment plant was becoming costlier to operate – and capital to fund upgrades was limited. With rising pressure for speed and efficiency across their organization, data capture alone wasn't enough. Their team needed technology that not just collected that data, but empowered better decision making, investment planning, efficiency and sustainability.

To move from data harvesting toward data science, our client tapped ASSET360™, Black & Veatch’s data analytics tool, and soon the platform began receiving actionable intelligence across plant operations. Real-time process calculations saved valuable time by replacing cumbersome spreadsheets. Remote monitoring by Black & Veatch process engineers provided added confidence and support for their decision-making processes. Initial results were so compelling, ASSET360 was later extended to include two additional wastewater treatment plants and two water treatment plants.
