The BITA case presents the use of a knowledge portal by a private company, namely Grupo Agbar (Aguas de Barcelona). The project was devised by Fundación Agbar and was subsequently taken over by CETaqua (Water Technology Center). This case seeks to justify the viability and future of a knowledge portal; the BITA project (Water Technological Information Bank). Several updates have been put into effect in the course of the portal project, making it possible to cover the Group's staff's needs, along with those of its various businesses, but the project has essentially specialised in the water and sanitation sector. The initial goal of the BITA portal was to unify information from various libraries in the Agbar group. Its protagonists, the team led by Pedro Garcia and María Pi, were faced with the question that they had been given by the Group's CEO and Managing Director, Ángel Simon, who, while reviewing the budgets for 2009, had found an allocation of €600,000 corresponding to the maintenance of the BITA portal. Pedro and María have to justify the budget to ensure the portal's viability and future.
