Our favorite comic book superhero, The Cloud, assembles a team to take on asset woes at the local water utility and win. (And you can, too, with Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management.) #WAM4theWIN
What does full utility asset lifecycle management look like? From initial ideation to final retirement, every utility asset follows a cyclical path, a path marked by distinct, connected lifecycle stages: Plan, Estimate & Design, Acquire & Construct, Operate & Maintain, and Retire.
Oracle Utilities is full of geeks—those who know and love tech, especially those widgets that make the world’s infrastructure work well. We’re proud of that. We’re also full of nerds, too. Nerds are the studious sort, according to the official definition. According to us, they’re our binge readers—the emotional ancestor of all of today’s binge watchers, you might say.
"Innovation” and “sustainability” are so saturating our world that they’re losing meaning as real cultural movements with real cultural benefits, but here's where to spot the real thing in action in the water industry.
Humans have been moving water a good long time—since before actual time, really, since what we like to label “prehistory.” Storing and moving water is, in fact, an early sign of civilization (in infrastructure form). Stone was favored originally for the moving. The ancient Greeks invented pressurized piping and indoor plumbing (of sorts). So, for eons we focused on the moving of water, but that’s not the full snapshot anymore with water systems.
