It is well known that some of the nation's water infrastructure is over 100 years old. In fact, 40 percent is over 50 years old. Effectively managing assets is key to addressing our aging infrastructure challenges. During this webcast, Eric Meliton, a leading Environmental Technologies Industry Analyst from Frost & Sullivan, will discuss leading asset management trends in the municipal water and wastewater industries.
In addition, IBM clients, including the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District and York Region, will bring real-world examples on the use of IBM Maximo Asset Management to address regulatory compliance, aging infrastructure and GIS integration. The District found spatially enabling enterprise asset management allowed the two systems to enhance one another and give a more complete picture of the asset's lifecycle than each system separately.
