Research Note

A key factor driving the rapid growth of the global digital water market is the mainstream adoption of cloud computing, as well as new business models—e.g., Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)—enabled by cloud technology. Though cloud- and SaaS-based solutions were first popularized in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the water industry has only recently begun to embrace them, with a growing number of utilities and vendors moving data
and applications to the cloud.
