Capgemini delivers smart water meter deployment and management through SaaS platform

Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has announced the launch of an off-the-shelf software-as-a-service (SaaS) product, that manages the entire smart metering lifecycle.

Capgemini’s new ‘Smart Water Services Platform’ is based on the company’s Smart Energy Services (SES) platform, leveraging best practices developed over the last 10 years working alongside the world’s leading utilities in the smart metering field.

Capgemini’s Smart Water Services Platform is capable of managing the entire radio water metering lifecycle from programme planning, meter rollout and operations right through to maintenance enabling an efficient analysis of water consumption. As the platform is delivered as a SaaS solution the pricing is based on usage, utilities will benefit from rapid and low-cost set up and a reduction in total cost of ownership compared to a classic on-premise solution.

Gilles Taldu, Head of New Business Models, Capgemini comments: “Technology that can help tackle one of the biggest challenges on the world’s sustainability agenda today – water scarcity – represents both significant progress against a global problem, and an important future revenue stream for utilities. Our new SaaS solution is a cost effective, scalable way for utilities everywhere to analyse water usage in real time, and introduce more efficient processes when it comes to consumption.”

Capgemini’s Smart Water Services Platform is meter manufacturer agnostic and its open architecture will integrate with any radio data collection solution, meter data management system, or ERP system including SAP and Oracle. Capgemini also offers turnkey services with the platform at the heart of the system offering enhanced integration with existing infrastructure.
