GHD Digital, part of global professional services company GHD, has entered into an alliance with global technology integrator, Orange Business Services, 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 Services, Australasia.
GHD Digital and Orange Business Services 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 Services’ 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.
