TaKaDu - Turning Network Data into Knowledge
TaKaDu's Software-as-a-Service solution for water utilities provides alerts, reports and real-time insights about water distribution network events. Continuous raw network data is securely sent to the TaKaDu server, which then pre-processes the data, cleans “noise” and faulty readings, determines the normal behavior (taking into account past events and network-specific behavior), and finds anomalous events. Results are delivered to utility personnel in an easy-to-use web interface, over email or via text messages.
The TaKaDu solution translates data such as flow meters, pressure and quality sensors, reservoir levels and seasonal changes, translating into real time, accurate, and actionable alerts such as faults, leaks, bursts, pressure, flow and level anomalies, water quality and telemetry problems by using statistical and mathematical algorithms.
Event management uses predictive analytics to understand if the alert is an 'interesting event.' By translating the alerts into events, TaKaDu enables utilities to manage the full lifecycle of a network issue by providing several insights, including informative details, such as type and location, management tools, such as prioritization of the event, and deep analysis tools such as determining the root cause and repair verification. As a broad management solution, TaKaDu enables utilities to achieve higher network efficiency through resolving the issues faster and at a lower cost.
