Join the 1st SWAN DaaS Workshop!
Within the water sector, Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) is an emerging, innovative business model applied to both water and wastewater operations with utilities outsourcing the operation and maintenance of different core services to outside private companies.
The concept of “servitization” is well-proven in the manufacturing sector and to begin the Workshop, we will hear a keynote presentation from Tim Baines, the leading international authority on servitization. The Workshop will also feature a global panel with diverse DaaS case studies, as well as interactive roundtable sessions based on design thinking principles. Get ready for a fun and creative experience!
