1IBM Takes the Pulse of Its Smarter Planet Strategy at Tivoli Conference
9Galveston National Lab uses Tivoli
10IBM Tivoli Software powers Galveston National Labs biomedical clean room environments
The laboratory is dedicated to the study and prevention of emerging infectious diseases such as SARS, West Nile encephalitis, avian flu and hemorrhagic fevers (such as Ebola). The biomedical equipment includes air-flow handlers, decontaminating showers, door seals and locks. IBM Tivoli software helps these assets operate efficiently to assure safe and secure operations.
11The Tennessee Valley Authority uses IBM Tivoli software
Tennessee Valley Authority, the United States’ largest public power company, has initiated fleetwide use of IBM Tivoli software to help increase efficiency across all its power facilities that employ wind turbines, methane gas and solar panels, including 29 hydroelectric dams, 11 coal-fired plants, 11 combustion-turbine sites, a pumped-storage hydropower plant, 18 green-power sites and three nuclear plants, including its Sequoyah Nuclear Plant.
12Washington DCs Water and Sewer Authority (WASA) relies on IBM Tivoli to help manage aging sewer systems
IBM and the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC WASA) are working together to modernize the management of the aging water and sewer infrastructure hidden beneath the nation’s capital. The sprawling infrastructure includes hundreds of thousands of assets such as water distribution pipes, valves, public fire hydrants, collection pipes, man holes and water meters. The system will enable DC WASA to share and exchange data both internally for planning purposes and externally to assist other agencies, such as sharing real-time status of the more than 9,000 public hydrants in D.C. with the DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services. Based on data from the IBM Maximo software, the hydrant status and water flow capacity of each hydrant can be mapped using ESRI software and seen by the fire department via Google Earth. As firefighters are rushing to the scene, they will know in advance the level of water flow to expect out of the hydrants in the vicinity.

14IBM Maximo helps Washington, D.C., manage miles of sewer piping
To distribute water and support the distribution system, IBM Maximo software manages the systems that include over 1,200 miles of pipes, five pumping stations, five reservoirs, four elevated water storage tanks, 36,000 valves and 8,700 public hydrants. The IBM software also manages 1,800 miles of sanitary and combined sewers, 22 flow-metering stations, nine off-site wastewater pumping stations, and 16 storm water pumping stations within the District.

25IBM helps San Francisco manage water pollution
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is using IBM Tivoli software to help reduce pollution in the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The SFPUC, which treats an average of 80-90 million gallons of wastewater per day during dry weather and up to 370 million gallons of combined wastewater and storm runoff per day during the rainy season, is using the IBM software to develop smarter management of the city’s 1,000 miles of sewer system and three treatment facilities.
