Assistance to water and environment- related IS project managers

The assistance to the management of information systems (IS) on water and environment is a mission of interface between the work teams and the prime contractor responsible for the technical realization of computer projects for the development of an IS.

An information system (IS) consists of hardware and software organized to collect, store, process and communicate digital information. The coherence and mastering of the IS are key elements for the management of any private and public structure.

The International Office for Water (IOWater) has specific knowledge of information systems, especially on water and its environment. It has been involved in the development of the French Water Information System (WIS) for more than 25 years. It works in France and abroad to carry out audits of information systems. It intervenes in a context of transformation:

  • before the project start, by helping the client define his needs, drafting functional and technical specifications;
  • during the project, by helping the client to analyze the needs of the work teams and to lead the project management for the technical implementation;
  • after the project, by helping the client to follow up the management of its information system (IS) and providing functional support to users.

Throughout the project, IOWater ensures that the costs, delays and quality of information system (IS) development projects are complied with.
