Government & Local Authority Waste Data Management


Waste management is critically important to the environment and the economy. OpenSky Data Systems understand the onus placed upon UK local waste authorities for continuous improvements and accurate waste data reporting and forecasting for waste collection and disposal. 


The integrated Waste Data Management Solution (iWDMS) developed by OpenSky is a pioneering web based technology which is tailored to meet the evolving requirements of local waste authorities. Our solution not only increases efficiency and productivity but also saves costs.





Waste Analytics

William Flanagan, CTO, OpenSky’s Data Systems outlines the growing popularity of Business Intelligence in the management of Waste in the UK. From contractor performance monitoring, to predictive forecasting and operational KPI's, the data contained within waste databases can reveal many opportunities for improvement. But how does an organisation manage and process this huge amount of data into relevant, timely and easily accessible information and dashboards? Welcome to the world of business intelligence services. Read more here


In 2011, OpenSky developed a unique custom built iWDMS for Lincolnshire County Council, UK. This ground-breaking solution facilitates Lincolnshire’s back-office productivity, enhances their user workflow, reduces administrative and ICT infrastructure costs and greatly simplifies compliance with Defra’s WasteDataFlow (WDF) reporting requirements.

It is critical that accurate, timely and responsive waste forecasts are available to local authority waste teams so that investment, contract and performance decisions can be made with confidence and are based on quality data. Many factors can impact on forecasts and they are an evolving figure that should react intuitively to changes in the environment ie population, new legislation, new waste streams, changes in contracts etc. Good forecasts can lead to better use of costly resources and can provide Waste Teams with a solid foundation for policy and planning. 

In 2017 OpenSky launched iWaste+, a new intuitive forecasting and analytical visualisation engine for Local Authority Waste teams to mine their historic, current and future waste data for useful information, patterns and trends. Based on familiar Microsoft technology and with the ability to integrate many many data sets, the module is a shared platform providing secure access to Waste, Finance, Operational and other managers to critical operational and policy information, in real time. 

Take a peek view at how easy it is to spot anomolies, visualise your complex waste data story and share infromation from trusted data sources, easily and quickly on iWaste+ on the sample below. iWaste+ and openskys Waste Data Analytics Support Services is now available on G Cloud 9. Procuring iWaste+ on G Cloud reduces the burden of onboarding a new analytics suite for your Waste Team, giving additional resources to waste teams for onbarding support.
