Innovyze Debuts Smart Water Utility Solutions to Harness the Power of Analytics-Centric Asset Management for Improved Water Management Decisions

Comprehensive Geocentric Business Analytics and System Dynamics Portfolio Enhances Operational and Capital Planning Efficiencies for Improved Infrastructure Monitoring and Management

 

Broomfield, Colorado USA, September 6, 2011 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today unveiled its first portfolio of GIS-centric analytics and system dynamics tools for intelligent business decision making. By combining powerful analytics software with advanced asset performance modeling and optimization technologies, the new strategic Analytics Centric Asset Management (ACAM) product suite provides water utilities worldwide with a comprehensive geocentric solution for data collection and management, water security, network simulation, real-time forecasting, day-to-day operations, renewal planning, and decision analysis. The suite also strongly complements the data and critical functions of maintenance planning technologies like Cityworks (Azteca Systems, Sandy, UT) for a complete enterprise asset management system.

“The Innovyze analytics-centric asset management solution suite is truly revolutionary and by far the best investment for any water utility looking to optimize its enterprise asset management program,” said Gregory M. Baird, a leading enterprise asset management expert. “This is the ultimate GIS-centric decision support tool for water infrastructure management. By seamlessly combining all security, operations and planning phases of the modeling workflow process within the powerful ArcGIS environment, ACAM delivers the advanced functionality water utilities need to help strengthen and optimize their hydraulic infrastructures and keep them operating efficiently well into the future. This solution is for utilities who take their water stewardship seriously. It will revolutionize water asset management for years to come.”

Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA), the world’s leading GIS software, the Innovyze ACAM suite addresses water utilities of all sizes, using geospatial data and sophisticated modeling tools to find problem areas in the water system, solve infrastructure issues, enhance security, and optimize performance. Its advanced business analytics applications address every facet of water utility infrastructure management, operation, and protection — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Uses include helping water utilities more effectively manage their energy consumption, improve overall operations and reduce greenhouse gas emissions; managing sensor location placement, systematic flushing, leakage and pressure zones, vulnerability and valve criticality assessment; and conducting prioritized risk- and condition-based capital investment planning. High-performing system dynamics enable users to predict steady and transient flow, pressure and water quality conditions throughout the distribution system under multiple scenarios.

Together, these tools enable water utilities to effectively listen and speak to their assets, gaining a deep understanding of their conditions, needs and performance. These unprecedented capabilities immeasurably facilitate faster, better-informed decision making, and support more reliable and efficient asset management and business planning at maximum cost savings. They can also help utilities reduce their water infrastructure vulnerability and enhance their ability to prepare for and respond to natural disasters and emergencies, and bond more closely with their customers. With minimal effort, users can quickly simulate and analyze various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, and determine the most cost-effective physical and operational improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance while improving community relations.

“Our customers are transforming the world around us for the greater good,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE, President and Chief Operating Officer of Innovyze. “Our strategic Analytics-Centric Asset Management product suite helps water utilities of all sizes simulate reality, giving them access to the world’s most comprehensive business analytics and system dynamics geocentric tools. Armed with these tools, they have new unprecedented power to effectively plan, manage, design, protect, sustain, and operate highly efficient, reliable and better-performing water infrastructure systems that promote the well-being and advancement of people everywhere. What’s more, they can attain these achievements while staying competitive and improving ROI. We are proud to bring this powerful new solution set to market, knowing that it will make an immediate difference in people’s lives, our communities, and our society.”
