Germany is Europe's largest economy, and one of the top five water and wastewater markets in the world. The country has a track record of spending big money on advanced technologies, and has invested more than $143 billion since reunification in 1990. Capital expenditure on water and wastewater infrastructure is high at $8.7 billion, and this market shows no signs of declining.
This report is your essential guide to penetrating this prosperous market or increasing your existing market share. We analyse the water sector, show you the areas of opportunity and give you strategies for success in the market. Alongside this thorough examination of the market, this report provides in-depth market forecasts, a complete guide to regulations and a full database of over 300 German water utilities (including direct contact details and service indicators).
Market drivers and opportunities
The largest growth area in this market will be rehabilitation and maintenance of the country's ageing infrastructure and private sector involvement in financing and operations is likely to play an important role.
Global Water Intelligence Market Insight: Germany identifies to the two main sources of opportunity for investment in the German water and wastewater infrastructure:
- Water quality improvement - The government is heavily focused on dealing with pollution from wastewater discharge (and non-point sources). We look at the opportunities that this is creating for advanced technologies, so you can match the country's water quality needs to your business portfolio.
- Infrastructure degradation - Water and wastewater networks are increasingly operating at below their capacity design due to decreases in industrial water use, population and per capita consumption, accelerating corrosion and creating hygiene issues. Major investments will be required in the next decade in order to maintain Germany's well run water and wastewater sectors. Inevitably, this will create huge opportunities for private sector involvement in financing and operation. The report shows current market players how they can benefit from existing opportunities, as well as providing in-depth analysis of procurement models and supply chains for businesses looking to expand into this market.
- Procurement models and supply chains - this report looks at the procurement models by which the private sector can enter the German water market, as well as providing strategies for overcoming obstacles that make the German market reasonably difficult to penetrate for foreign companies.

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
