Digital Transformation for the Water Industry: Europe

Posted on May 3rd, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Last week I had to opportunity to visit Kraków, Poland. Our Water Innovations Alliance Foundation (WIAF) Co-founder, Mark Modzelewski is now living in Krakow.  Beautiful city, tremendous dining and cutting edge technology. Breakfast at my hotel was a roomful of Engineers, Scientists and Financial Professionals from the US, Great Britain, Italy, Russia, France, Poland, Canada, Germany, Ukraine, Romania, Norway, Sweden and more.

Krakow-1

There are major global companies such as: CH2M, Google (Warsaw) and Cisco all with a footprint in Krakow.  I visited two IoT companies located in Krakow: Estimote and Silvair.  These companies are working with numerous manufacturers located in the US.

Krakow-2Last month we concluded our Water 2.0 Digital Transformation for the Water Industry Conference on March 22nd in Washington DC. Our DC event dovetails with what is happening in the water industry in Europe.  The presentations from our DC event specifically dealt with digital solutions to various water infrastructure problems.
