Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and GIS for Drinking Water Pipeline Condition Assessment
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fracta, a market leader in applying Machine Learning to assessing aging water infrastructure, was awarded the Esri® Predicting Outcomes Award during the annual 2019 Esri Partner Conference in Palm Springs, California.
Fracta earned the Predicting Outcomes award for using Machine Learning and GIS to deliver advanced analytics through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. The Fracta application predicts, visualizes and assesses the Likelihood of Failure, Consequence of Failure, and Business Risk Exposure of aging water distribution mains. Request a Demonstration.
Fracta enables utilities to make fast, accurate and capital-efficient risk mitigation decisions about buried water main infrastructure. The architectural framework can readily integrate with other important software applications used by water utilities for Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), and Hydraulic Modeling.
"Leveraging the new Esri partner solution licensing models, Fracta built its solution to scale from the largest to the smallest utility," said Takashi Kato, Co-founder, President and CEO of Fracta. "This was done deliberately so we can democratize condition assessments and help all utilities address the drinking water infrastructure challenge."
