Pidpa GIS : an integrated approach

Geographical Information System for Water Distribution Network Management

Pidpa is a Belgian water utility, offering drinking water and wastewater services to 65 communities in the Antwerp province. Over the past few years, Pidpa has implemented and extended an Esri ArcGIS based solution, to maintain detailed geographic information on drinking water and wastewater networks. With an important focus on integrating GIS and ‘location awareness’ in several work processes for technical as well as customer departments. The most extensive integration is towards several SAP modules, which now provides easy and more efficient access to administrative data via GIS-views for a lot of users. Relevant GIS and SAP data flows are  linked where possible, to ensure data consistency throughout both enterprise applications.

Over the last few years, several papers on the GIS implementation and integration with SAP and other information systems, were presented on as well GIS as SAP user-conferences, and published on this webpage.
