As water utilities and companies work towards the digital transformation of distribution and collection systems, new technologies can help provide insights and improve inefficiencies. Innovyze’s software solutions enable water and wastewater utilities to monitor, analyze, and optimize their operations using the power and convenience of the cloud.
Innovyze and Smart Water Magazine are organizing a webinar next Wednesday, July 14 on how utilities can leverage data to streamline the analysis of water distribution systems. We speak with Nathan Gerdts, product manager of water distribution solutions at Innovyze, to learn about it in greater detail.
Question: Innovyze is hosting a webinar entitled “How the City of Scottsdale Leveraged Sensor Data to Streamline Water Distribution System Analytics with Innovyze's New Cloud Platform”, scheduled to take place on July 14th. What is the purpose of this event?
Answer: The purpose of this event is for utilities and consultants to learn how Innovyze’s new cloud platform, Info360, can help bridge the gap between live data and operations with long-term term planning and engineering. As an online, enterprise platform, Info360 is purpose built for field crews, operations, engineers, and management so that utilities can transform to a holistic smart city maximizing data collection and expertise to provide the highest level of service possible.
Q: Who will be the speakers participating in the webinar, and what will be the key topics discussed?
A: John Crochet, Regional Sales Manager for southwestern states of the US, will present on the Info360 platform infrastructure as a whole, and it’s first 3 applications: Info360 Insight for operational analytics, Info360 Asset for asset management, and Emagin for treatment optimization.
Nathan Gerdts will then focus on how Info360 Insight is able to take sensor and data analytics to greater level by leveraging system-wide hydraulic behavior driven by models. Key use cases for water distribution will be presented, including water loss reporting, pump efficiency, and pipe break impact assessments.

Q: Can you give us a brief introduction to the technology solutions that will be discussed, and how can they help water utilities?
A: Info360 Insight unifies water utility data in the cloud, applying sophisticated analytics, modeling, and alerting tools to make operational information more accessible, reliable, and actionable.
By leveraging high-performance cloud computing, broad data access, and hydraulic model integration, Info360 Insight brings real-time awareness to operational performance and highlights key utility performance indicators like non-revenue water, pump efficiency, and mission critical alerts.
Q: Who should attend the webinar, and what will the audience be able to learn?
A: This webinar is for any division of water utilities: from operations, to engineering and planning, to management. As an online platform, any member of a water utility can focus on the analytics and data that is important to them. In this webinar, each department will learn how they can leverage data collected on their distribution system for tracking and planning system performance.
