Ageing infrastructures and changing framework conditions are currently major challenges for sustainable asset management in the water supply sector. The substance-oriented preservation of the value of existing facilities is essential in order to guarantee security of supply.

Modern methods and technologies can help to obtain a comprehensive picture of the condition of the infrastructure.

Digitalisation has an important role to play here. Many digital tools are now available on the market for asset management: from geo-information systems to maintenance management and equipment information systems through to enterprise asset management applications. However, there is sometimes a lack of knowledge in the industry or a lack of transparency regarding the variety of possible applications and their potential.

DigiTools AM has developed a structured overview of digital tools for asset management, including the availability and distribution of products and successful applications.
