Itron links with OSIsoft to boost water utility data management

Itron is working with US software company OSIsoft to deliver a real-time data analytics solutions for water utilities in a bid to boost management of the distribution network.

The companies are working together to enable data sharing between their solutions by integrating OSIsoft’s PI System, a real-time infrastructure for streaming data and events, with Itron Analytics, an analytics application.

OSIsoft’s PI System collects data from more than 400 disparate data systems and sources, including SCADA and other operational systems.

The integration will enable utilities to take data collected from multiple sources that are not traditionally tied together – such as advanced metering infrastructure with bulk water meter consumption data – and analyse it within Itron Analytics to create actionable information.

Itron customers can store consumption data from Itron’s AMI solution within the PI System, allowing them to distribute data across the enterprise and make process improvements across utility departments.
