The prize was awarded during Water Innovation Europe 2019, Water Europe’s annual conference that has taken place in Brussels (12th-13th June) with more than 200 water and energy experts. This year’s topic was “Water Meets Energy, Energy Meets Water”.
The award jury for the digital water category valued valued the GoAigua platform as an innovative solution that responds to the real needs of the market, capable of valuing water resources and promoting a sustainable model for intelligent management in cities.
An IoT & Big Data platform for overcoming data silos
GoAigua’s technological solution responds to the problem of data segregation in the water industry. Information governance and digitalization have been one of the main concerns of water services over time, remaining the management and exploitation of data from hydraulic processes a major challenge. Data silos imply that sensorized data is not integrated into the enterprise data stream, infrastructures are managed on a vendor system basis, and there is no standardized and predictable way of consuming this information.
GoAigua’s integration platform has been designed to standardise how sensorised data is acquired, stored, managed and shared throughout the organization. It seamlessly integrates information from different vendors and equipment, including IoT devices and third-party information, without changing existing software or hardware.
This award recognizes GoAigua’s commitment to digitization and its work in developing new innovative proposals. GoAigua’s solutions provide service in all stages of the integral water cycle under a common architecture. The administration panel unifies all the key information to achieve an integrated management and provide each customer with a holistic vision of the integral water cycle, setting a unique precedent in the market.
