Yarra Valley Water (YVW) is the largest of Melbourne’s three water corporations. Its service areas cover 4,000sq km, and its network consists of more than 20,000km of water and sewer mains. Combined, its infrastructure and assets are valued at over $5 billion. While the organisation is widely considered a pioneer in the sector, it needed assistance in finding efficiencies and digitising its asset intensive operations.
Glenn Wilson, General Manager, Service Futures, Yarra Valley Water, and Phil Thornley, Data and Analytics, Emerging Technology Leader, KPMG, combined their teams’ efforts to accelerate the value that could be derived from YVW’s data, to solve for a range of current and emerging problems faced by the water industry.
