Expanded Suite Takes Real-Time Network Modeling to New Heights
Broomfield, Colorado, USA, May 26, 2015 — In its ongoing quest to equip the global water industry with the world’s most powerful and comprehensive smart water network modeling solutions, Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide availability of its new IWLive Suite. Available for both InfoWater and InfoWorks WS, IWLive Suitefeatures two targeted, complementary and synergistic products: IWLive and DemandWatch.
A complete solution for real-time network hydraulic and water quality modeling, monitoring, forecasting and SCADA integration, IWLive equips water utilities with powerful, mission-critical tools that are both predictive and reactive. It continuously assesses water system performance and alerts operators to problems that may arise in the coming minutes, hours, or days, allowing them to quickly determine their time of onset and severity and develop reliable response strategies to minimize downstream effects. It also gives operators unprecedented decision making ability in developing real-time response strategies. They can run accurate hydraulic simulations that factor in energy costs, weather, real time or delayed SCADA telemetry, demand history, and valve and pumping control scenarios.
A powerful water demand forecasting tool, DemandWatch can continuously feed IWLive with reliable estimates of water demands under varying weather conditions. It can take into account unexpected temperature changes, especially important during unusually hot days. With continuously updated and refined water demand estimates,IWLive can then readily perform accurate simulations that reliably predict network operational performance over the next few hours or days. The results of these simulations can be used to achieve optimal operation and management of water distribution systems. Armed with this combined power, water utilities can better plan, operate and manage their water distribution systems; improve conservation measures; minimize energy consumption and carbon footprint; optimize scheduled maintenance activities; meet regulatory compliance; and enhance customer service.
“The new IWLive Suite delivers a complete smart water network management solution, providing both real-time modeling and automated demand forecasting in one package, “said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE,Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “The comprehensive nature of this bundle supports the increasingly widespread adoption of real-time network modeling technology by the waterworks industry. It also furthers Innovyze’s time-honored practice of continually adding value to its software and bringing unmatched smart network modeling capabilities, backed by unsurpassed technical support, into the mainstream. Our customers will quickly experience the real value of this integrated solution. We are proud to introduce it, knowing that it will make an immediate difference in people’s lives, our communities, and our society.”
The IWLive Suite is backed by Innovyze Implementation Services, including training and technical support, designed to help customers worldwide maximize the value of their investment in Innovyze technology. A more detailed look at individual modules can be found at www.innovyze.com.
