GHD Digital and Orange Business deliver instant intelligent insights to Australasian enterprises

GHD Digital, part of global professional services company GHD, has entered into an alliance with global technology integrator, Orange Business, to help Australasian enterprises in the mining, transport, water and smart cities sectors gain instant intelligent insights from their global infrastructure assets. The Intelligent Infrastructure Assets Alliance [iA]2 was officially launched in Sydney on Friday, 19 October 2018 by GHD’s Global Digital Leader, Kumar Parakala, and Kevin Griffen, Managing Director, Orange Business, Australasia.

GHD Digital and Orange Business will work together in Australasia to help clients initially in four key industry sectors to enhance operational effectiveness, improve safety and reduce data collection and operating costs. This will be achieved by identifying previously untapped sources of data and connecting this data to insight and analytics platforms, providing the insights needed to make accurate decisions in real time. By combining GHD Digital’s deep understanding of organisations’ operating requirements with the Orange Business’ global Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, this alliance will deliver an ‘IoT as a service’ model that maximises business outcomes.

Clients no longer have to be on site to undertake a labour intensive and manual process to record and track key statistics. Instead, they have instant remote access to this information. From tracking the movement of materials and assets at a construction site in real time, to monitoring the number of people on site, clients can now optimise logistics, detect theft, maintain inventory levels and mitigate safety risk.

“Major infrastructure is primed for digital disruption. However, clients face a range of challenges, from constrained bandwidth and connectivity, to matching the hype of digital technologies with operational outcomes. Our alliance will provide clients the insights they need to drive the transformation of their business.”

Kumar Parakala, Global Digital Leader, GHD

“The use of IoT solutions is increasing at a rapid rate. Combining the Orange Business global footprint and IoT expertise with GHD’s extensive experience and capabilities in infrastructure and asset-intensive industries, we are poised to produce an IoT offering that is unmatched. We look forward to working with GHD Digital to help our clients maximise the benefits of IoT.”
