The article reports that phase two of a Yorkshire Water (YW) programme has been delivered by Capula Ltd. to improve its data storage, retrieval and analysis capabilities. In phase one of the project, Capula created production dashboards using OSIsoft PI. Capula has now enhanced the underlying system structure as it was rolled out at 21 clean water treatment sites, which has reduced the effort required for maintaining and further expanding the system.
