Digital transformation permeates almost every aspect of infrastructure management.
Through Geographic Information Systems (GIS), infrastructure assets once stored in hard copy files now exist as a living, digital inventory with location and major attributes used for applications such as modeling, purpose-built mapping, and dashboards.
The Computerized Maintenance Management System or CMMS was once limited to specific industries and organizations with major computing power. But through maturity, these systems now serve as full-on cloud-based Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) systems for the masses, opening the door for an array of industries to leverage for operations and maintenance. Supervisory control and data acquisition or SCADA started in power plant control rooms and now provides real-time data collection through smart meters installed across city water systems.
These technological advancements help infrastructure organizations stay resilient.
