Use the Power of Predictive Analytics for better Water Management

Artificial Intelligence, Business, , , ,

Invest in the Power of Predictive Analytics for better Water Management. Indeed, asking water utility companies to cut leakages remains always a delicate business case. Managing hydraulic resources still provokes much debate. In a world threatened by a severe water crisis, data analytics is playing a crucial role to monitor the industry.  

1/ How Can Data Mining Help Us to Save Water ?

Since 2012, Steps, in cooperation with international business partners, has started to elaborate predictive data analysis for governments to spot water leakages and detect anomalies in the distribution process. These business solutions are a great asset to modernize water utilities all over the world. These operations contributed to the reduction of costs and time.

The evolution of data science brought about tremendous change in the way governments and private stakeholders tackle the distribution of water. For instance, digging holes and operating in extended construction sites is costly and time-consuing. So, water utility providers turned to the predictive power of data. Steps analysts invested their expertise to collect data and work on it to elaborate predictive business reports. These documents are the key to control water management from its first phase to reaching consumers.

2/ How Do We Operate through our Data Science Strategy ?

Our strategy adopted an early leak identification solution that encompasses a variety of tasks. Thanks to this method, we worked on cutting opertaing costs and meeting water leakages in real-time. Thanks to this new data intelligence solution, we are providing better services for our clients. By this innovatory technique, we are able to prevent the customers’ outbursts over frequent water shortages and misuse of natural resources. Our project, orchestrated with the consistent assistance of our business partners, is to increase analytical capability using existing data to get early event warnings and see what we have been unable to visualise before.

3/ What Are our Steps to Take Care of your Data?

The early identification solution ensues the collection of unstructured data, the cleansing and the scientific analysis of it. These digital alerts are based around customized parameters for a quick detection of problems. Therefore , the automated monitoring of flows and pressures in the clean water distribution system allow the system to check for anomalies. Such as a sudden drop in pressure. Indeed, an increase in flow at a meter, or chain of meters, may indicate a leak will bring such events to the attention of the specialized staff. 

Applying data-based prediction is a great opportunity to preserve precious natural resources as water.

We work endlessly to use science and IT solutions to sustain development and create a better world for future generations. Our engineers are harnessing the power of predictive analytics to manage uncessary water losses and provide a better quality of services. we developed algorithms to predict unusal flow of water and potential leaks. Thanks to these operations, relevent technical teams are mobilized to fix anomalies and prevent late intervenetion in the water distribution. With the assistance of this BI solution, we are working on minimising pump usage and therefore energy consumption. For more details on our project, please visit: steps.tn

The Water Industry Embraces Data for More Efficiency

Artificial Intelligence, Business, Data, Uncategorized, , , ,

The water industry adapts data for more efficiency. In fact, the world is witnessing another crisis: water scarcity. Indeed, several conflicts over water resources are marking new headlines. This situation increases the worries of scientists. Even authors such as Steven Solomon expressed their fear in bold words. They incite the stakeholders of the water industry to take serious measures to tackle this threat.

1/ What Do Reports Say ?

Following the 2016 report from the UNEP-hosted International Resource Panel, the demand on water supply will significantly grow by 40 % in 2030. Therfore, these alarming figures will even put more pressure on water utility providers. They should invest double efforts to provide the precious water. We talk about doubling our water consumption in the last century. The increasing demand on water resources is only getting issues more complicated. Thus, the water industry should change and evolve to meet the expectations of the increasing number of customers. The organizations that manage water supplies around the world are facing critical issues.  The water scarcity is chief among them.

2/ How Can Data Analytics Save Water ?

Shortage in water supply will negatively affect food chains. It can even bring about lingering economic crises. Consequently, it will hinder economic growth. To put an end to this critical problem, water utilities companies are increasingly resorting to digital platforms and data analytics. Using data mining techniques, they can detect water leakages and improve the use of water resources. According to the latest statistics issued by the World Bank, the world loses about 25-35% of water due to leaks and bursts. The annual value of this non-revenue water (water produced and lost by utilities) is equal to $14 billion. But how can data science alter this situation?

3/ How Do We Operate ?

With the assistance of our business partners, STEPS orchestrated IT solutions to use and interpret data. Using data intelligence services, we manage the extraction and distribution of water resources to customers. Our data analysts orchestrate business insights to bring about new measures to tackle water losses. We can also predict different leaks in distinct locations. Thanks to data mining services, STEPS and its worldwide partners are working to raise awareness about water consumption. We provide data solutions to guarantee a better management of water.

4/ Does Data Science Helps to Detect Leaks?

We gather information about your business. During the next phase, we allow the technical teams to intervene on the site. By this, we can prevent water frauds and leakages. The software provided relevant data like the start time of a leak and when it was fixed, based on real-time information. This situation will bring about more focused investments based on types and frequency of problems in each zone. Data analytics , with its precise predicative analysis, is really changing the face of the water industry.

5/ Want to Profit from this Innovatory Process?

Steps has already worked with more than 167 clients over the world on reducing Non Revenue Water. Thanks to precise data analytics, we worked to detect current frauds and optimize water management. We enable business stakeholders to elaborate faster and more effective responses. Learn more about our activities on steps.tn
