“All this is done by different companies, with different solutions. What Aveva proposes is a solution installed on top of all monitoring solutions, for each branch. A solution capable of taking data from various vendors, centralizing it and contextualizing it for all interested people, who have different roles – for example, a city manager will only be interested in some aspects. Thus, the usage data on each transport line in consumption are correlated with the receipts, the operational data are aggregated with the financial ones, etc. Also in the case of lighting, office buildings, energy production units, water treatment plants, Aveva can offer information aggregation solutions, regardless of the platforms used”, Drăgoi added.
