Delivering large data science projects remotely: lessons learnt
Doing data science working from home is challenging: here is what we have learnt...
Artesia provides specialist water sector consultancy based around data science. Their combination of extensive industry knowledge and data science skills enable them to develop leading edge solutions for leakage management, water resource planning, water conservation, demand forecasting, network and asset management, and smart metering. They have an unrivalled reputation in the UK for helping clients to solve complex problems, particularly where data analysis, statistics and mathematical modelling are required.
i2O delivers intelligent water networks to 100 water companies in 45 countries around the world to reduce water loss by providing solutions that enable clients to instrument, analyse and control water networks to reduce leakage, reduce energy consumption and improve supply.
Under the agreement, i2O will be creating modules in its iNet advanced analytics solution that leverage the software and algorithms that Artesia has developed to solve individual clients’ challenges. It will extend the reach of Artesia globally and improve the breadth, depth and effectiveness of i2O’s analytics solution.
iNet can ingest data from a wide variety of sources and is not limited to i2O hardware. That data is analysed and made available along with derived insights in graphs, tables, dashboards and maps to ensure that it is actionable. iNet reduces the time it takes to identify and diagnose network issues, makes the maintenance of assets on the network more efficient, and identifies opportunities for network optimisation. This enables water companies to reduce the number and extent of supply interruptions, leakage and bursts.
Dene Marshallsay, Director Artesia commented: “The Artesia-i2O partnership is a powerful combination. Artesia has a deep understanding of water companies’ challenges and has the data analytics expertise to solve those.”
Joel Hagan, CEO of i2O, added: “i2O has a large number of clients across the world and an enterprise-grade analytics platform with a wide range of functionality that can operate at scale, with low latency and high availability, and offering high levels of security appropriate for critical national infrastructure. We are delighted to be working with another company that has a reputation for excellence to bring the benefits of their work to a larger number of clients.”
