Last May, the Big Data Analytics Europe event took place in Amsterdam where our client Vitens presented the project we are currently working on. Anchormen was present at the event, together with our partner MapR.
Vitens is the largest drinking water company in The Netherlands, delivering 350 million m³ top quality drinking water annually to 5.6 million people and companies. The 9.000 kilometer long pipeline network in the province of Friesland has been equipped with sensors to improve the monitoring and management of this water supply network. It’s Vitens ambition to create a data-driven water supply system using innovate sensor technology and open data and models. By using smart data analysis, Vitens plans to reduce energy consumption, improve the water quality and detect interruptions real time while keeping customers better informed.
