AUTHORS: Darren Mackiewicz, Jayson Brennen – CDM Smith

ABSTRACT: In today’s technology-driven world, utility professionals are increasingly looking for tools that will help streamline the ways in which data can be collected, disseminated, and analyzed. In fact, we live in a society in which instant access to information is critical (preferably using the phone in your pocket), and using information and analytics to make more informed decisions is not a luxury - it’s a necessity. _x000D_
There are a rapidly increasing number of technology tools that can be used to support more informed decision making and performance measurement. Software tools like Esri Insights allow utilities to integrate data from multiple datasets and bring that information together into a single, visual dashboard environment that can greatly help identify trends (i.e. where water main breaks are occurring), track progress towards goals (i.e. status of a sewer system inspection program), and visualize data in real-time (i.e. energy consumption in pump stations). These tools, coupled with mobile GIS data collection and analysis tools, can prove to be valuable solutions that support more effective asset management, system operations, and performance tracking. _x000D_
During this presentation, case studies detailing the use of GIS-based business analytics dashboards for utility asset management will be presented and examples will be provided. In addition, the pros and cons of popular hardware and software solutions will be discussed. Utilities large and small can benefit from the proper use of technology and this presentation will provide a concise overview of key emerging solutions.
