Melbourne Water taps NetApp to revamp its digital platform


Water industry company Melbourne Water, a government-owned authority which manages major water, sewerage, and drainage networks across Greater Melbourne, has teamed up with cloud software company NetApp to modernise its digital platform.

Melbourne Water is deploying NetApp’s Ontap software solution, which provides simplified storage infrastructure, efficiency, and enterprise data protection to support its digital transformation journey.

The Victorian utility is taking a new approach towards its digital strategy to make customer engagement easier.

Melbourne Water’s strategy embraces five business domains: customer, service delivery (asset), corporate, infrastructure, and capability. One key element of its strategy focuses on cloud adoption and a greater use of data analytics.

By working with NetApp, Melbourne Water can scale-out its cloud and data storage capabilities through the implementation of a hybrid cloud strategy and support the future of its overarching digital strategy.

“We foresee a huge data growth in the next three years and needed a partner that could help us scale, manage our data and utilise the cloud as part of our transformation journey,” comments Melbourne Water manager core delivery services Gaurav Gupta.

“NetApp’s Ontap and hybrid cloud data service will help us enhance business operation, and in turn, helping us provide better support to our customers and enhance overall user experience. NetApp’s capabilities and the ability to deliver data services irrespective of the location on-premises or cloud providers is a true differentiation,” Gupta says.

“Being cloud-ready is now a necessity for all businesses as they aim to address their new data needs. Melbourne Water is expecting to see a flood of new data growth and we are here to support them as they take their first steps in the journey. We look to continue working with Melbourne Water to help the utility become a true cloud-led organization,” NetApp managing director Australia and New Zealand Paul Crighton concludes.
