Session Overview

Esri and Bluefield Research published a report on how GIS is supporting the digital transformation of water, wastewater, and stormwater organizations. 

The global water industry continues to face longstanding infrastructural challenges. Existing infrastructure is aging, outdated, and deficient. Leaky pipes contribute to global non-revenue water rates reaching an estimated 30% to 35%. Overloaded wastewater collection systems contribute to major problems with sewer overflows and pollution. Changing financial and workforce conditions, rapid technological advances, and evolving regulatory regimes are all shifting the landscape underneath utility managers’ feet, requiring agility, resilience, and resourcefulness at every turn.

In this webinar, we will discuss how GIS is uniquely suited to enable utilities to optimize operations, improve network management, and make better decisions. GIS serves as the foundation for this digital transformation. The webinar will also share the report's findings and innovative customer examples on leveraging data-driven insights and coordinated operations so that you can learn from them to meet your goals.

Key Points

  • Understand how GIS improves water asset management, network connectivity, integration to other sources of data and enables information access across the organization from the office to the field. 
  • Learn how digital transformation in utilities can support coordinated operations, network management, and data integration.  
  • Explore innovative digital water technologies, such as IoT integration and cloud-based solutions, to discover how they can enhance water resource management and resilience.  

Intended Audience

This webinar is for all Water Utilities and Public Works managers, executives, and GIS professionals in utilities, local and provincial governments.
