Water’s Digital Future
The water and wastewater industry is in transition to a digital revolution that has the potential to transform the industry from innovations such as the internet of things and machine learning.
Big data is changing the face of the water industry, and the management of data-driven monitoring and control systems will increasingly infiltrate every part of the water business. Driven by continued water quality regulations and the need to improve process efficiencies and optimise system performance, there has been an increased uptake of monitoring and control systems that are able to detect changes in real-time.
In the future data-feeds and cognitive computing could govern water management and inform every decision in the municipal and industrial sectors. It is critical for every company working in the water space to understand how this reality will impact future operations and opportunities in the water industry.
