The Lentic Platform, an enterprise IoT solution for the water utility sector, will be developed and implemented by Fujitsu Australia and Iota, who have entered into a strategic agreement for this ongoing project.
Lentic empowers water authorities to accelerate their digital transformation journey. By streamlining data across the enterprise, Lentic leverages insights to help predict and prevent water leaks, reduce water service costs and improve water conservation.
In addition to maintaining, supporting and optimising the Lentic platform, Fujitsu will be involved in co-creating a roadmap for this innovative IoT platform to rapidly scale.
CEO of Iota, Dan Sullivan, said, “We are thrilled to work with Fujitsu to accelerate the sector’s digital transformation journey. Fujitsu’s choice to work with Lentic is a show of faith in the product and the collective teams behind it.”
Iota is a leader in developing new technologies and innovation in the water sector. They are working with existing customers, including South East Water, a large Queensland council and a water authority in Victoria to provide services, such as improving customer insights into water consumption and minimising water leaks.
This strategic agreement between Fujitsu and Iota will further accelerate the development and commercialisation of Lentic to help utilities and councils plan for future sustainable water management and deliver sustainable infrastructure to the wider communities.
Head of Industry, Public Sector at Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, Dave Lennon, said, “Smart technology can help protect one of our most precious resources – water, and support water utility companies to deliver better, more sustainable, and cost-effective services.”
“Driven by our purpose to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation, we’re proud to play an important part in supporting the growth of this water wise IoT solution to create a positive impact on the environment and society.
“By working with Iota and leveraging Fujitsu’s network, we aim to position Lentic as a world-leading water IoT platform and deliver this solution to other utilities to better serve their customers, maximise their operational excellence, safeguard their assets, and conserve natural resources.”
