June 30, 2014 6:26 am

IBM has won a contract from Qatar Public Works Authority (Ashghal) to provide a smarter road and drainage infrastructure in the Gulf country. Under the deal, Ashghal and IBM will deploy an Enterprise Asset Management Solution (EAMS) to effectively manage the operation and maintenance of the country’s roads and drainage networks and multiple effluent and water treatment plants. Based on IBM’s Maximo Asset Management Software, the system will also gather and analyse millions of discrete pieces of information about the country’s road and drainage assets through a Geographic Information System (GIS) to allow the location of assets or work to be determined and tracked in real time.
