Length:  20 pages

Around the globe, water is used for much more than just drinking. Water is essential for agriculture and for cooling and cleaning industrial equipment. It is incorporated into a wide range of products, and vast amounts of it are needed to irrigate crops, parks and golf courses. And, as growing consumer and industry demand strains water supplies,
society must manage the consumption and distribution of this precious and finite resource with greater efficiency.

As populations rise and urbanization trends continue, water utilities are finding it increasingly difficult to meet growing demand for water resources. Utilities are also challenged by an aging and failing infrastructure. Budgets are limited, and utility providers run the risk of compromising service quality. Overall water consumption has grown two times faster than the global population over the last century. Domestic and industrial water consumption quadrupled from 1950 to 1995, and it is expected to grow another 50 percent by 2025 as populations continue to increase.

IBM can help governments, utilities, businesses and organizations address water issues, such as loss, leaks and aging infrastructure. IBM Intelligent Water solutions are designed to enhance infrastructure visibility to deliver an advanced level of situational awareness, event and incident management, informed decision-making and stakeholder collaboration.
