Digital transformation is making water utilities leaner and smarter. Sensor networks and the Internet of Things provide real-time information that helps utilities manage water loss, identify water quality issues, and more. Intelligent analytics uses data to predict water supply and consumer demand so that water managers can scientifically plan sustainable communities.
Because water data is tied to location, many utilities already use ArcGIS® to map the location of pipes, valves, pumps, meters, and other assets. Unfortunately, these agencies often don’t take advantage of ArcGIS analytic capabilities.
