The transition to an effective integrated network management approach

It is no longer enough to repair bursts and replace mains. We need to understand how our assets are performing, in order to target areas for investment to realise the maximum benefits. Through an integrated network management approach, we are looking to truly understand how our network functions, addressing bursts, leakage and quality issues, whilst building a longer term view of risk. This will enable us to improve and target our incident management to ensure that levels of service to our customers are maintained.

4.20pm – Q & A

4.30pm – Close with final Q&A – James Dunning, Syrinix
