Navigate uncertainty and complexity with BMA's Decisio Cloud for Water to ensure a resilient water environment
Today’s water and wastewater companies have a challenging journey ahead as they seek to deliver reliable, high-quality, and affordable services to their customers while reducing carbon emissions and improving the resilience of their networks.
BMA’s Decisio decision processor has been designed specifically to help make and coordinate the most challenging decisions of our time by harnessing the power of AI, the Cloud and decision science.
The journey towards a sustainable, future-oriented, and resilient water sector
Water makes life possible on our planet. It is essential for the environment, human health and wellbeing, and for economic growth. Our ability to ensure a resilient water environment now and in the future faces new uncertainties and complexities: driven by a changing climate bringing hotter and drier summers, changing customer expectations, aging infrastructure and the need to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions, all alongside the pressure to keep customer’s bills affordable.
BMA’s solutions play a critical role in helping to plan and execute a resilience-building water network strategy and operating models. By using the Decisio decision processor and its proven AI, data and decision analytics capabilities, organisations can rise to the occasion.
At the core of Decisio Cloud for water is a digital representation of the end-to-end water system from raw water through to end-customer consumption. This higher level digital business twin captures the assets, operations and finances involved in abstracting, treating and distributing water – thus ensuring joined up and connected planning.
Water value chain
Today’s water and wastewater companies have a challenging journey ahead as they seek to deliver reliable, high-quality, and affordable services to their customers while reducing carbon emissions and improving the resilience of their networks. The water sector increasingly needs to enhance its resilience to climate change, including the anticipated rise in both droughts and floods. Additionally, it should proactively tackle the challenges posed by population growth through comprehensive and forward-thinking planning that fully aligns with these adaptation needs. BMA’s vision is to assist in the sustainable delivery of secure water supplies and an improved and protected water environment.
The world is transforming as our expectations of cleaner energy, cleaner water, and more sustainable materials & products increases. This transformation however brings with it new uncertainties, complexities and risks requiring a similar transformation in the quality, speed and consistency of decision-making and execution. BMA’s Decisio decision processor has been designed specifically to help make and coordinate the most challenging decisions of our time by harnessing the power of AI, the Cloud and decision science. Used as a next-generation water resource resilience solution, our platform leverages advanced AI and systems modelling to provide the accurate planning and execution of your future-oriented water network strategy and operating models.
So what is Decisio?
The complexity of business decision-making, and the increasing speed at which business moves, means that decision-makers across organisations are inadequately equipped to consistently make the right decisions at the right time. BMA developed the Decisio Decision Processor to harness AI and other ground-breaking cloud technology advances to support customers in making better, faster and more coordinated business decisions.
To do this, Decisio encapsulates a range of technologies, analytics, methodologies and decision science principles into a single ‘processor’ that is controlled from a single user interface and that has the security and governance built-in to support the smooth adoption of AI. Read more.

Franklin, Agnes & Fish: Why the UK water sector needs Adaptive Systems Planning
The New Storms List, first launched by the UK Met Office in Autumn 2015 as a means of improving communication and public awareness, gives names to any storms with the potential to cause an amber or red warning.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) had predicted that there would be 14 to 21 named storms this year, a number that makes 2023 an above-average year for storms. But how effective are we at predicting storms?
Digitalisation and technological innovation provide the foundation for a national UK Bioresources Model
With the increase in complex challenges such as climate change and population growth, greater certainty is needed around the long-term approach for managing sludge and bioresources to support the delivery of national policies and deliver improved environmental outcomes. More creative and innovative solutions are required.
