Examples of projects ••Early flood monitoring system in the Chicago area ••Cathodic protection monitoring for PEI in Israel ••Fuel tank monitoring in Afghanistan Technologies & products ommyx provides a flexible, real time water management system for remote monitoring and analysis of data. The ommyx platform consists of a remote unit that interfaces with any sensor, a communication device that sends that data registered by the sensor via wireless network and a management SaaS application that collects the data, analyzes it and presents it in an easy to understand, friendly way. The system is also capable of sending processed information via the web in the form of online, e-mail and SMS alerts. The ommyx management system (OMS) is a comprehensive SaaS package. It is a powerful web-based application that efficiently processes and analyzes data. The application consists of the main program and measuring instrument modules, as well as a built-in database and a flexible and user-friendly report generator. The OMS gathers information received from multiple sensors and devices, analyzes the data, and delivers the information to decision makers and on-site staff members via cell phones, PDAs, hand- held devices, SMS and e-mail, as well as by direct web-access from any device. At the other end of the system is the omni 247 remote unit an embedded hardware assembly with multiple and flexible communication capabilities, that comes as a stand-alone unit that connects to any sensor already on site, or with a sensor integrated into the unit, depending on the customers’ needs. Put together, the OMS and omni 247 provide a highly flexible, extremely cost effective end-to-end solution for organizations looking to instate or upgrade a supervisory control and data acquisition system with decision support system components. SCADA and DSS systems are generally considered high-end expensive solutions, and are therefore not widely prevalent among the large market segment of small size water utilities, municipalities and water and wastewater service providers. ommyx is turning these critical systems into an affordable option for these segments. 19Back to Index

  22. 22. Company profile TaKaDu is the global leader in Water Network Monitoring, providing a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for water utilities. TaKaDu’s solution detects, classifies, alerts and provides real-time insight on leaks, bursts, network breaches, faulty meters and other inefficiencies. The solution is based on complex statistical and mathematical algorithms which analyze online data from existing meters within the network (flow, pressure, etc) in conjunction with external data (weather, holidays, etc). TaKaDu’s patented technology is easy to deploy, requiring no network changes, no additional devices and no capital expenditure. The service is in commercial use by leading water utilities worldwide, served through a global network of partners and resellers. The TaKaDu team is comprised of top-notch scientists with vast data analytics experience, alongside seasoned executives from global software leaders. TaKaDu is a founding member of SWAN (Smart Water Networks forum). The company is the winner of many industry awards, including the prestigious Technology Pioneer 2011 award from the World Economic Forum. Year of establishment: January 2009 No. of employees: 35 Background of the company Based in Israel, TaKaDu was founded by Amir Peleg, an experienced high-tech entrepreneur and a top-notch team of Computer Science and Math Ph.Ds, as well as software market veterans. Prior to founding TaKaDu, Amir’s previous company, YaData, was acquired by Microsoft in 2008. Solution General Description TaKaDu’s solution takes SCADA readings (flow, pressure, quality and other measurements) and GIS data about the water network, cleans them of “noise” and constructs a model of how the water network behaves, adjusting for the day of the week, hour, seasonality and operations and maintenance activity. It then monitors the network to detect anomalies based on that model and alerts when they happen. This lets water utilities “see” the network and detect leaks and other anomalies before they become much larger operational issues. ••The solution requires no network changes and uses existing historical and real-time online data ••Leaks are detected before they become bursts, since the solution is sensitive to relatively small changes ••Alerts are also provided when sensors, meters and operations malfunction ••The solution can monitor “blind spots” where sector or DMA water balance methods cannot work ••The solution is provided as a Software-as-a-Service: no installation or IT support is required. After the data is securely passed to TaKaDu, TaKaDu presents water utility staff with web-based reports showing water network behaviour and alerts upon anomalies or leaks. TaKaDu’s monitoring service is used by utilities worldwide, from Australia to Latin America, providing real alerts about leaks, bursts and other issues, such as faulty meters and network configuration problems. Solution Benefits and Value TaKaDu’s unique approach helps monitor the network’s “blind spots” more effectively, control water loss, find more leak events and identify many small leaks before they become large. TaKaDu’s ability to find faulty meters is in and of itself a major benefit. Most importantly, TaKaDu’s system doesn’t require any physical network or equipment investment on the utility side. Benefits include the ability to: ••Reduce and mitigate the need to replace network infrastructure ••Save water lost to network issues through leaks and bursts ••Save energy and other inputs wasted by producing water that is then lost to network inefficiencies ••Prevent “Network Events”, e.g. energy wasted without water loss in pressure zone boundary breaches ••Reduce dependence on new water sources, as current sources will be more effectively utilized. Even with well-established active leakage control practices, TaKaDu is proven increase water networks’ efficiency through detection ofmany network events, water loss events and other issues, often without prior notification by existing monitoring methods.
