Bluefield Research believes digital innovation will continue to transform the water industry in 2018. The research company has outlined in Water Online the eight major water industry trends predicted in 2018. One trend is that asset management will become a key focus:
“Within the smart water sector, asset management has emerged as the key battleground, where players from across the utility operating spectrum are extending their offerings to incorporate asset centric products and services. From multiple angles (leak detection, pressure management, workflow management), solutions providers are looking to operationalize historic data in asset-centric decision making. Municipal water utilities have never had such a wide commercial offering of solutions to improve how they plan, monitor, and manage their critical water infrastructure.”
Matchpoint is equipped to meet the forthcoming demands and needs of stakeholders as the water industry continues to evolve to mirror the digital era.
