Your Platform for Operational Success
"The Wonderware technology has measured up to and exceeded our expectations.”
— Fandisco Alija Monitoring and Control Manager (9REN Group)
Today, industrial companies need a more efficient and flexible way of developing, deploying and maintaining the software applications used to manage and improve operations.
Built like an operating system for industrial applications, Wonderware® System Platform provides configuration, deployment, communication, security, data connectivity and other services. Why struggle with multiple “point solutions” when you can build and deploy the same capabilities from a single, integrated software development environment or “platform”?
Wonderware System Platform interfaces to hundreds of field devices and plant systems, allows extensive re-use of engineering, eases maintenance burdens, provides broad scalability and extensibility while accommodating new computing technologies such as virtualization.
You can finally deliver a standardized set of industrial applications that encapsulate your best practices and proprietary knowledge to every one of your sites.
It is revolutionary; it is the next step and it is available today from Wonderware System Platform.
Wonderware System Platform Advantages
Acting as the industrial operating system to support your applications, Wonderware System Platform provides many advantages to improve operations over traditional “point solutions”, including development, deployment, maintenance and security associated with multiple applications running at multiple sites; this significantly reduces the burden on your IT organization.
Development Advantages :
Traditional “point solutions” all require configuration and some degree of customization and scripting. What if you could configure all of your applications from a centralized development environment? Using only one development environment means your engineering teams are more productive and efficient.
Object-based development allows engineers to create specific application functions and save them as application templates. Once a template is developed and tested, it can be used by any engineer to add functionality to any of your applications throughout your entire site. Proprietary functions and calculations can be encapsulated into application templates and used at all of your sites. Errors are reduced and standardization is finally a realizable goal. Leading companies find they can save over 70% in engineering costs by using Wonderware System Platform.
Deployment Advantages :
Flying engineers to each of your sites to install application software can be a thing of the past if you use Wonderware System Platform. Centralized deployment allows your engineering team to deploy entire systems or just small changes any time without negative impact to your production or operations. And they can do these deployments from their offices.
You no longer have to wait to deploy system changes due to travel restrictions; this means that system improvements can be done anytime — allowing greater ROI to your company. You can change processes to take advantage of a market condition much faster with Wonderware System Platform. Your operational agility improves and you can operate your business with more flexibility.
Maintenance Advantages :
The more custom industrial applications you have, the more maintenance you need to perform. System updates, hot fixes and new versions all require valuable IT and engineering resources. Wonderware System Platform’s object-based approach simplifies and reduces maintenance activities. If new functionality is to be implemented, it can be done from a central location. The exact version of each application object is available to system administrators so that they can be sure what is deployed to the field. Eliminating guesswork helps when a regulator performs an audit on one of your sites. No more drama, just confidence that everything is up-to-date and running smoothly.
Security Advantages :
Cyber security has never been more important than it is today. Wonderware System Platform is a highly secure development & deployment environment that can be configured to control system access and user rights, along with tracking system changes by user. Wonderware System Platform supports Microsoft Integrated Security, SmartCard & other security protocols and methods. Since applications are managed from a central location, you do not have to worry about security issues associated with multiple applications running at multiple sites; this significantly reduces the burden on your IT organization.
