The Nagoya City Water & Sewage Bureau is to use the MyWorld location intelligence platform from UK firm Ubisense to replace its legacy geographical information system (GIS). Nagoya is the fourth largest city in Japan.
 
MyWorld is an enterprise location intelligence platform that integrates data from any source – complex GIS, real-time asset data, GPS location, corporate systems and external cloud based sources – into a live geospatial common operating picture. It delivers this intelligence to everyone involved – online or offline, in the office or field – in a simple and quickly digestible form.       
 
Nagoya City Water & Sewage Bureau will be using it in its headquarters, upgrading its legacy GIS to achieve a unified view of operations. The bureau has also purchased a number of MyWorld licences for its field team, to help improve the efficiency of its inspection and survey activities.
 
This uptake in Japan represents significant strategic growth for Ubisense, which is achieving growing market penetration in North America.
 
"We're delighted to have been selected by the Nagoya Water & Sewage Bureau," said Jay Cadman, vice president of networks industry at Ubisense. "This is a real testament to the flexibility of MyWorld, which we believe can deliver benefits to a variety of infrastructure intensive industries across the globe through the simplification of complex data and its various relationships."
 
MyWorld has more than 10,000 users among its utility and communications customers, and is focused on further expansion into multiple geographies, with a focus on North America, Australia and Japan. Founded in 2002, it is headquartered in Cambridge, England, with offices in North America, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea and Singapore.
