How a smart water company accelerated its business activity by tapping into its data resources
SMARTEO WATER is an ambitious startup specialized in intelligent water supply systems. Smarteo Water developed City Flow, a data product integrating the OpenDataSoft platform at its core.
“We were a team of a dozen people, and none of us were software developers by training. Developing such a solution in-house would have been a colossal investment of time and money. So, we decided to look for a platform that would allow us to develop our own interface and processors, all while ensuring it was easy for anyone to use.” said Loïc Charron, CEO at Smarteo Water.
“We found 99% of the functionalities we defined as necessary for our service were already covered by OpenDataSoft.” said Loïc Charron, CEO at Smarteo Water.

How Birdz uses OpenDataSoft's platform to empower clients to deliver life's most essential resource
BIRDZ is a subsidiary of VEOLIA Water France that specializes in environmental monitoring. Their sensors allow operators to control quality, protect infrastructure, and detect possible leaks. Every day, this dense grid of sensors collects millions of data points.
The challenge for Birdz is compiling and presenting these data to its customers in a way that maximizes their usefulness.
Birdz chose OpenDataSoft to develop customizable data dashboards that provide value to everyone at water distribution companies.

Informing and engaging the citizens of Durham City and County through open data
The City and County of Durham are located in the research triangle in North Carolina.
In early 2013, the City and County of Durham decided to come together to pursue an ambitious open data initiative. With transparency as a major goal of the project, both entities had to find the right medium to make it easy for citizens to gain access to government data, while encouraging residents, entrepreneurs and government employees to utilize this abundance of public data for civic innovation.
“We can make 95% of what our citizens are really looking for available through dashboard. This prevents users from being overwhelmed by the amount of public data and miss meaningful information.” says Greg Marrow, CIO of Durham County Government.
