Wonderware, a business unit of Invensys Systems, has released a new, enhanced version of its enterprise integration application designed to reduce the complexity and costs of business-to-manufacturing integration.
Wonderware has launched the Wonderware Enterprise Integration Application 2.0 to enable manufacturers to improve operational performance by integrating diverse sets of manufacturing systems and business applications.
Invensys claims the solution is able to bridge the gap between the real-time domain of the plant floor and the transactional domain of business systems using powerful workflow functionality and transformation mappings.
Version 2.0 is also said to extend the library of pre-built integration templates to better facilitate the integration of business applications and Invensys sees further value in the product’s offering of a new production dispatch client functionality enabling the independent release of production orders regardless of business system or network availability.
With the release of version 2.0 of its Enterprise Integration Application, Wonderware says it has launched a strategic initiative to reduce the complexity and risks associated with large-scale deployments through its consulting services and by collaborating more closely with the broad network of Wonderware’s ArchestrA-certified system integrators.
Robert Peters, president of system integration company ASECO, said, The two main benefits we’ve received from using the Wonderware Enterprise Integration Application – compared to previous approaches to custom development – are that it takes away a lot of risk while maintaining the flexibility to meet specific requirements. It also has helped us pursue new opportunities because the ability to integrate business and plant-floor information improves our standing with potential customers.
