IBM to set system to monitor Bangalore water supply

Bangalore, Feb 20 (IANS) Global IT major IBM’s big data and predictive analytics will create systems to monitor and manage water supply in Bangalore by the state-run Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB).

“Our intelligent operations centre-based solution, developed at our India software lab, has the GIS (geo information system) for real-time view of flow meters across the city and identify a specific flow meter,” the company said in a statement here Thursday.

As the city’s main source of water are the Cauvery and Arkavathi rivers in the Mysore region, the doubling of its population to 10 million from 5.4 million in 2000 has put the city’s water supply and distribution system to tremendous strain.
