Managing South Australia's Water Matters

Listed software company Prophecy International has scored a home win when their e-Foundation software development for the Department of Water Land and Biodiversity Conservation (DWLBC) was recently commissioned to support water officers throughout South Australia.

DWLBC selected Prophecy International and its rapid application assembly software, e-Foundation, to develop WILMA (Water Information and Licensing Management Application) which will deliver enhanced licensing and management reporting for the Department. The development was successful and able to meet tight timelines because of the power and flexibility of the breakthrough e-Foundation technology environment and the experience and expertise of the Prophecy staff.

The strategic system will manage water allocation, licences, various water-related permits, and administrative functions in its first release. Additional functionality is on the drawing board to extend the system's support to salinity management, water trading, support for regional variation, and other business areas.

The intricate design and development of WILMA has meant Prophecy has gained an in depth understanding of water licensing and water transfer management. This is an area that is growing in importance as water resources in the State are scarce and demand is increasing and the fact that water is now traded as a commodity (similar to shares) along with seasonal variation in water usage restrictions. WILMA also manages permits for well drilling in the State and collects and disburses funds for water usage, meter rentals, and related charges.

The Department's initial apprehension about leaving a fifteen-year-old legacy system has evaporated as understanding of the more powerful and function rich WILMA system grows. Prophecy International is delighted to have completed this work and looks forward to helping reflect new initiatives in WILMA.
