Tomorrow’s solutions for today’s water industry
The rate of technological change in the water management and infrastructure industry is rapid.
When TechnologyOne hosted the inaugural Water Hack at the OzWater conference in 2017, it was apparent that advances in the way water assets are managed would create challenges for people who work in the sector, as well as customers.
Jonathon McKeown, Chief Executive of the Australian Water Association, described the Water Hack as a way to “get creative minds thinking collectively to solve some really big issues”.
TechnologyOne engaged around 30 industry innovators in the brainstorming activity, including Anne-Elise Charles from Jacobs, who said she was excited about the possibilities new technology would bring in the future of the water industry.
“I feel like the water industry is something that’s kind of been a little bit on the back foot of the technology revolution, but I think with the number of people that are really keen for that to happen—it’s going to happen soon,” she said.
“I think it will change the way people interact with water and the way they appreciate water as well.”
The outcome of the Water Hack was the development of an ‘invisible utility’ concept, where service providers deliver streamlined, optimised and personalised customer experience that renders processes and complications ‘invisible’ to the customer.
