TIBCO NOW 2020 Lighthouse Awards: Sustainable Innovation - Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)
TIBCO recognizes the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) with the Sustainable Innovation Lighthouse Award for its relentless pursuit of expansive innovation. SEPA, a public body of the Scottish Government tasked with protecting the environment in a way that protects public health, ensures sustainable use of natural resources, and helps contribute to the country's economic growth. By implementing an advanced analytics solution from TIBCO, SEPA revolutionized the way it collects, analyzes, reports, and publishes data, putting those insights into action to advance a wide range of environmental protection and business goals. As a result, SEPA takes more effective, data-driven action quicker and more efficiently, reducing up to 80% time spent on certain back-office processes, which in turn reduced costs significantly. Just one impact of this approach was a 54% reduction in non-compliance of agricultural sites with the ultimate achievement of reducing the amount of pollution impacting the environment. Overall, this promotes a healthier, cleaner, sustainable environment for Scotland. Interactive insights can also be transparently published for public consumption, enabling better development of effective environmental policies.
