TaKaDu Announces Integration with Esri ArcGIS® for Greater Operational Efficiency   

First deployment already underway at Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB), Tennessee, USA, providing single interface for visualizing network events in real-time

Yehud, Israel – May 20, 2019 – TaKaDu today announced its first deployment of its integration with Esri ArcGIS® at Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB) in the US, the first since joining the Esri Partner Network. Esri is the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software. Combining TaKaDu's Central Event Management (CEM) solution and data analytics with the Esri ArcGIS platform enables utilities to improve their operational efficiency and reduce water loss. 

“Since implementing TaKaDu’s CEM almost two years ago, we’ve improved our network efficiency and begun to reduce our non-revenue water. This latest integration with Esri further improves our network visibility, providing a more real-time overview of our network performance. We’ll be able to prioritize and assign tasks more easily, ensure an even faster response and optimize our decision-making process”, said Ted Tyree, Engineer, Water Systems Engineering at KUB. 

“TaKaDu’s Central Event Management (CEM) solution has been integrated with the Esri ArcGIS® Online platform to provide one single interface for visualizing and managing network events – including developing trends, leaks, bursts, faulty meters, telemetry and data issues, and more – facilitating a faster and smarter response every time. With valuable information aggregated from multiple resources, the solution provides a bird’s eye view of a user’s network operations, mapping out network events in an operational dashboard”, said Ziv Zaretsky, EVP Sales & Business Development, at TaKaDu.

TaKaDu is a Silver member of the Esri Partner Network, a rich ecosystem of organizations that work together to amplify The Science of Where. GIS Partners build on, extend, and help implement the ArcGIS platform. 
“TaKaDu’s integration with ArcGIS signifies a committed partnership that will provide customers with a complete event management system leveraging TaKaDu for its robust event modeling, prediction and analytics and ArcGIS for its visualization and mapping capabilities. Esri customers can extend the value of TaKaDu results by leveraging the information for dashboarding, response, and additional spatial analytics”, said David Wachal, Director Global Water Practice Esri.
