What is WISKI?

Unlimited storage of monitoring data & metadata

Break down data silos and secure information for long-term access to a single source of truth to support operational and planning decisions.

Automated quality control & data editing tools

Effectively manage resources and improve data quality by validating and correcting data values in bulk and manually reviewing as needed.

Convenient analytics, reporting & alerting software

Calculate statistics and custom algorithms to report status and compliance, predict events and warn of undesirable model scenarios.

Flexible enhancement to other IT systems like telemetry & GIS

Import and export with other data systems to maximise discovery, use and sharing by different groups within your organisation.

Key product features


Extensive scope of data

Ability to bring different data sets (environmental, water quantity, water quality, biological) into one central system at the same time, giving you a better picture of what is happening all in one place.


Intelligent integration capabilities

Can exchange data with any other software you have, so you can either use it as a single point of truth or integrate data with other data platforms to create a seamless flow of information or gain stronger, more reliable insights.


Data sharing community

This system supports easy data sharing between units so you can better coordinate and collaborate with your peers to understand the bigger picture beyond your borders.


Robust calculation engine

More sophisticated calculations, making it very easy to perform calculations.


Ability to process large volumes of data fast

With optimised data storage and processing, this system can process large amounts of data quickly, so you can be confident that you will not have to wait for this information.


Handles historical, real time and future data

It can handle historical, real-time and future data, so you can analyse, stay informed and plan for the future to make the best decisions.

Scalable options to suit every customer

Due to its scalable nature, WISKI can be adapted to medium to large companies that want to manage data on a larger scale, unlimited by the number of users and workstations, with an extended IT infrastructure, or scaled down for smaller companies that want a comprehensive data management system but do not have a dedicated IT infrastructure (WISKI Compact). It’s available both in the cloud and on-premises.

WISKI has provided our business with exciting opportunities to grow, new ways of working, find a new place for our ever expanding and infinitely varying data archives and to shed old restrictive routines/software.

Key product benefits

  • Futureproof your environmental monitoring & reporting system

    Futureproof your environmental monitoring & reporting system

    Consolidate data from multiple disciplines: hydrology, meteorology, water quality, soil science, and ecology. An evergreen IT design ensures a high level of information security and long-term access to continuous and non-continuous datasets.

    This historian supports an unlimited number of measuring stations, parameters and observation variables, raw and processed data values, and metadata. In addition WISKI helps process many thousands of SCADA tags, ensemble data, raster data, and biological sampling and taxonomies.

    User interface options support casual users as well as power users, while web services facilitate compliance reporting, customisable scripting as well as GIS analysis in third-party platforms.

  • Recover time & engage staff in problem solving, not troubleshooting

    Recover time & engage staff in problem solving, not troubleshooting

    WISKI standardises and automates routine processes in data management. From import to data quality assurance to performing complex calculations, the system features an extensive library of commonly used formulas and eases tasks consistently achieved by IT.

    Conveniently correlate monitoring and discrete sampling events with water chemistry information and biological assessments and indices. From collection to receipt of laboratory results, track bar codes, fulfillment of lab orders, and the total chain of custody. Incorporate bioindicators to control lab costs and evaluate ecosystem health over a longer period of time.

    Maximise employee retention and minimise turnover. Recover time and recruit your best assets to fully engage in understanding observable trends, making improvements, and identifying opportunities.

  • Efficient operations, maintenance and resilience

    Efficient operations, maintenance and resilience

    Data visualisation is at the core of the user experience. Graphs, charts and dashboards optimise data analysis, presentation, and collaboration. Customised colour-coding, symbols, and favourite folders in addition to extensive filtering, reporting and alarming options help users quickly read data, from extreme values to areas of interest.

    WISKI captures extensive amounts of metadata to provide convenient access to images, videos as well as monitoring device serial numbers, manuals and history. Trace the calibration, use and lifecycle of sondes and probes over time to increase confidence in the data.

    Utilised by the largest water monitoring networks and water utilities, WISKI ensures stability and reliability. KISTERS developers and technical support providers focus on the lowest frequency of system failure and the highest resilience. Process and system analytics ensure system health when 24-hour operations are imperative.

  • Configure your own system to meet present & future needs

    Configure your own system to meet present & future needs

    Mix, match and configure modules to meet your distinct needs now and as new needs emerge. Intelligent design of WISKI gives organisations of all sizes options to affordably expand their data management system with the growing coverage area of their monitoring networks and types of monitoring programs.

    Sensor brand agnostic telemetry and data acquisition settings accommodate all makes and models of equipment used to monitor surface and groundwater, water quality and quantity, continuously or seasonally.

    APIs enable the integration of open data, information from data sharing partners, and custom scripts developed in-house or by consultants to enrich your context for making decisions and making regional impacts.
