Towards Digital Utility Conference
8-9 September, 2015 – Melbourne Arts Centre
Now in its third year, the event is all about increasing awareness of emerging industry trends, embracing innovations and maintaining understanding of rapidly evolving technologies in the utility sector.
A wide range of speakers presented on everything from the convergence of big data, cloud shared solutions, and digital metering, to new technologies that can enable greater efficiency and improved customer outcomes. A key goal for BWT was to identify any potential customer benefits or organisational efficiencies that are being achieved in the field. The second was to use this knowledge and apply it to our operational approach.
We weren’t simply there to take it all in though – Bermad maintained a keen presence throughout the event, and presented some innovative ideas of our own.
Michael Harrison and Damian Muir represented BWT, manning a stand throughout the conference and participating in many of the interactive group discussions. There was a great deal of interest shown from many of the attendees, with a number of the participants stopping at the booth to learn about our intelligent metering solutions and innovative products and approach.
This year’s WSAA conference again proved that significant financial savings, increased efficiency and improved customer value can all be achieved when utilities embrace new ideas and technologies. We’re excited about the prospect of applying some of our learnings in the coming months and years, and we’re dedicated to embracing the conference’s spirit of innovation in every aspect of what we do.
