Strategic agreement to develop sustainable water management
Fujitsu Australia and Iota, the commercialisation arm of South East Water, have announced a strategic agreement for ongoing product development and implementation of the Lentic platform, an enterprise IoT solution for the water utility sector.
Lentic is designed to empower water authorities to accelerate their digital transformation journey. It leverages insights from data across the enterprise to help predict and prevent water leaks, reduce water service costs and improve water conservation. Fujitsu will be involved in co-creating a roadmap for this enterprise IoT platform to rapidly scale, in addition to maintaining, supporting and optimising the Lentic platform.
Dan Sullivan, CEO, Iota, said, “We are thrilled to work with Fujitsu to accelerate the sector’s digital transformation journey. Fujitsu’s choice to work with Lentic is a show of faith in the product and the collective teams behind it.”
Dave Lennon, Head of Industry – Public Sector, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “Smart technology can help protect one of our most precious resources — water, and support water utility companies to deliver better, more sustainable and cost-effective services.
“Iota is a leader in developing new technologies and innovation in the water sector. Driven by our purpose to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation, we’re proud to play an important part in supporting the growth of this waterwise IoT solution to create a positive impact on the environment and society.
“By working with Iota and leveraging Fujitsu’s network, we aim to position Lentic as a world-leading water IoT platform and deliver this solution to other utilities to better serve their customers, maximise their operational excellence, safeguard their assets and conserve natural resources.”
Iota is working with existing customers, including South East Water, a large Queensland council and a water authority in Victoria, to provide services such as improving customer insights into water consumption and minimising water leaks.
Fujitsu and Iota’s strategic agreement will further accelerate the development and commercialisation of Lentic to help utilities and councils plan for future sustainable water management and deliver sustainable infrastructure to the wider communities.
