The need for better control of the water network
A top priority for utilities is ensuring consumer access to a high-quality and sufficient water supply. With the decrease in available water supply, utilities must be more efficient in the way they manage their water networks. Traditional SCADAs are usually leveraged to manage the whole network; however, these systems are limited to point data that does not provide the full visibility water operators need to understand the total network infrastructure. To get the full visibility to make operational decisions typically entails reliance on external departments, which is not efficient for critical situations requiring quick operator reaction time and decisions.
