Our team comprises research, engineers and business experts focused on applying Big Data and ML technologies for Water Demand Management for more than five years. We bring together expertise and software solutions validated in the context of the DAIAD FP7 research project, which delivered the first integrated open source water demand management system. Following the end of the project, the founders have formed an incubating entity supported by the Athena Research Center, continuing to advance the DAIAD system with new state-of-the-art analysis services for water utilities. A startup company which will focus on the commercial uptake of the DAIAD system is planned for the end of 2019.
