8 innovative examples of Big Data usage in India

#3 Big Data for detecting water leakages

Water Leakage

The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) is using Big Data and predictive analytics technology from IBM to create systems for monitoring water distribution systems. Bangalore’s massive population growth (from 5.4 million in 2000 to over 10 million) has put tremendous strain on the city’s water supply and distribution systems. In partnership with IBM, the BWSSB has built an operational dashboard, which serves as a “command center” for managing the city’s water supply networks.

Around 45% of the water supplied by the BWSSB goes unaccounted. Implementing this solution will help minimize unaccounted water by detecting large changes in water flow, through real-time monitoring.
