Paper Topic: Big Data, Data handling & Visualisation
Presenter Name: Mr Alan Cunningham
Company/Organisation: Servelec Technologies

Paper Information :

Servelec Technologies, the leading provider of business optimisation solutions in the UK water industry, has successfully delivered a number of trials of its pioneering FlowSure software to UK water companies. Trials will be described that have demonstrated that annual six figure net savings can be realised by use of the software. More than a simple leakage detection system, FlowSure is self-learning anomaly detection software that helps to identify and predict emerging network events to enable companies to prevent rather than respond to major events. Avoiding network leakage serves to reduce costs of contact handling and regulatory penalties as well as leading to improved customer service levels. The software uses an Artificial Neural Network to analyse data of scalable size and complexity in a simple user flexible tool that provides geospatial visualisation of events and alarms. It can be combined with other tools such as Asset Management and Network control as an integrated solution to provide a holistic approach to optimisation of the water system thus avoiding or mitigating the effects of leakage, bursts and blockages.
