ENVIDAN BECOMES A MICROSOFT SILVER PARTNER
At the beginning of the year, EnviDan became a Microsoft Silver Partner. Head of Cloud Services, Morten Klank calls the partnership "a cementing of the fact that EnviDan is highly competent to help customers on their digital journey". He is proud of the blue stamp, which i.a. means that EnviDan will have access to specialist resources at Microsoft as well as access features before they are officially released.
Customers are seriously putting power on their data
At EnviDan, we have been helping digital utilities for 20 years transformation, and with our new status as Microsoft Silver Partner, we can help customers even better so they can get more out of their Cloud journey. Business manager in EnviDan, Ulrik Højbjerre says: “We can support the utilities on their journey, as we have in-depth knowledge of the industry and can help them gain knowledge and insight into all the data they have available, for example. via Power BI”.
STATE OF THE ART FLOOD MAPPING WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY AND THE RIGHT SKILLS
With the help of new technology and skilled EnviDanere, it is now possible to make really good flood maps with extremely high level of detail for an affordable financial effort.
Together with Aarhus Municipality and Aarhus Vand, we at EnviDan have taken the flood mapping to a new level by conducting a hydrodynamic model simulation in 80 cm resolution with approx. 800 million calculation points. The most recent survey in 2016, by comparison, had just 3 million calculation points.
The model results have, among other things, been used as input for an EAD calculation at building level for the entire Municipality of Aarhus, so that an economic approach can provide the best starting point for the future planning of cloudburst water on terrain. In addition to the updated flood map, new visualization modules have been developed in the web for displaying and visualizing the huge amounts of data.
Head of research and development at EnviDan Mads Uggerby has been project manager on the project, and he is proud: “As project manager on the project, I can only say that I am mega proud and impressed with how the team behind this work has worked hard and found solutions. Close to impossible challenges in the project, which has lasted almost a year - and managed to deliver a truly impressive work and result. It just went well! ”
There is also no doubt that the task has required something out of the ordinary with the very large amounts of data. Despite the fact that the total amount of data produced in the project is approx. 43 TB.
The new flood mapping means that it is now possible to get both an updated and very detailed overview of how the water flows on terrain in Aarhus.
