IBM to Help Bangalore Track Water Distribution Systems Through Big Data

IBM-logo, ExecutivemosaicIBM has partnered with Bangalore, India’s water supply and sewerage board to develop big data and analytics systems for tracking the city’s water distribution networks, Business Standard reported Thursday.

The company formed a command dashboard that serves to monitor the flow of water in Bangalore in order to provide BWSSB a centralized view of bulk flow meter functions and volumes of transmitted water, according to the report.

PN Ravindra, BWSSB executive engineer, said the monitoring system is intended to help reduce unaccounted water supply by monitoring water flow changes in real time, the report says.

IBM India Software Lab developed the center with geo information systems for operators to examine key performance indicators such as flow rates, daily total flow, weekly average total flow, geographical location and update history, the report says.
