Fujitsu Australia and Iota, the commercialisation arm of South East Water, have entered a strategic agreement for ongoing product development and implementation of the Lentic platform, an enterprise IoT solution for the water utility sector.
Built from the ground up with water domain knowledge at its core, Lentic empowers water authorities to accelerate their digital transformation journey. By streamlining data across the enterprise, it leverages insights to help predict and prevent water leaks, reduces water service costs and improves water conservation. In addition to maintaining, supporting and optimising the Lentic platform, Fujitsu will also be involved in co-creating a roadmap for this innovative enterprise IoT platform to rapidly scale.
Dan Sullivan, CEO, Iota, said, “We are thrilled to work with Fujitsu to accelerate the sector’s digital transformation journey. Fujitsu’s choice to work with Lentic is a show of faith in the product and the collective teams behind it.”
Dave Lennon, Head of Industry – Public Sector at Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “Smart technology can help protect one of our most precious resources – water, and support water utility companies to deliver better, more sustainable, and cost-effective services.”
“Iota is a leader in developing new technologies and innovation in the water sector. Driven by our purpose to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation, we’re proud to play an important part in supporting the growth of this water wise IoT solution to create a positive impact on the environment and society.”
“By working with Iota and leveraging Fujitsu’s network, we aim to position Lentic as a world-leading water IoT platform and deliver this solution to other utilities to better serve their customers, maximise their operational excellence, safeguard their assets, and conserve natural resources.”
Iota is working with existing customers including South East Water, a large Queensland council and a water authority in Victoria to provide services, such as improving customer insights into water consumption and minimising water leaks. This strategic agreement between Fujitsu and Iota will further accelerate the development and commercialisation of Lentic to help utilities and councils plan for future sustainable water management and deliver sustainable infrastructure to the wider communities.
