The Value of Water Intelligence
Water Intelligence is a unique combination of state-of-the-art technology, scientific analysis and AI capabilities that continuously aggregates, synthesizes and transforms expansive amounts of complex water data into easily understandable, increasingly precise analyses and forecasts via scores and visualizations. These analyses and forecasts produce deep, clear insights that help decision-makers better understand water resources to make fully informed decisions about how to manage and optimize resources.
Water Intelligence Helps Public Sector Leaders Ensure a Water-Resilient Future
Changing weather patterns are creating climate crises across the globe. Ninety percent of those crises are experienced through water. True Elements' SaaS solutions and data sets quickly and easily provide Public Sector leaders with in-depth insights necessary for fully informed, confident decision-making to address water challenges at the local, regional and national levels.
Insights into current water quality and quantity challenges (pollution, demographic considerations, etc.) as well as future disruptive events or long-term changes to water resources (drought, sea level rise, flood risk, etc.) help Government leaders make the strategic decisions necessary to ensure their organizations, assets, operations and communities can adapt and thrive in a climate with rapidly changing hydrologic cycles. True Elements' Water Intelligence platform easily, efficiently and cost-effectively delivers the understanding decision makers need with color coded scores and visualizations.
"The Public Sector is currently facing water-related challenges that are expected to increase in number and severity if left unaddressed," said Harjeet Khalsa, Sales Director, Google ISV Ecosystem at Carahsoft. "Through collaboration with our reseller partners and the addition of True Elements' Water Intelligence solutions to our offerings, Government agencies are empowered to procure the resources necessary to proactively address existing water related challenges and work toward a water-resilient future."
True Elements, integrated within Google Cloud Marketplace, is now available through Carahsoft and Google's partner ecosystem. This collaboration simplifies procurement for Government agencies, granting seamless access to their Water Intelligence solutions powered by Google's robust infrastructure, ensuring efficient decision-making tools for addressing water challenges.

The initiative, which became a mandatory requirement for relevant entities starting August 1, 2022, aims to enhance the overall cybersecurity landscape in the Kingdom and foster a secure and reliable cyberspace conducive to growth. Separately, the NCA indicated that this requirement enhances the efforts made in developing and regulating the cybersecurity market and industry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and outlined the same precedes the issuance of necessary regulatory licenses to practice some activities related to the sector during the coming period.
