The use of ICT (Information Communication Technology) systems in water utilities as supporting tools to all levels and functions within the organization is increasing. The principles of smart water networks as defined by SWAN (www.swan-forum.com) are being adopted to a certain extent in most utilities in various ways and forms, often without having recognized the existence of the SWAN model. New ICT systems are often implemented as individual projects without having explored the synergetic effects that could be achieved by ensuring seamless integration with existing ICT systems within the utility. This means that a huge potential exists for efficiency improvements of the existing systems and development of new tools and techniques that will add value to the utilities. This paper describes a specific integration of ICT systems that could streamline the daily operation and presents real results from Denmark where such integrations are being implemented.
