Courtesy: IOMInvensys Operations Management announced the release of its ArchestrA System Platform 2012 and ArchestrA Workflow 2012 software offerings. ArchestrA System Platform and ArchestrA Workflow provide the core integration and collaboration platform inside of the company's InFusion Enterprise Control System and, when used in combination, offer a broad range of automation and information functionality that allows users to empower their people, processes and systems for real-time business optimization.

ArchestrA System Platform 2012 provides a single, scalable and open platform for the entire spectrum of automation and information applications, addressing the business and functional needs of industrial automation, operations and information personnel. Its plant-model based, integrated configuration environment provides a logical representation of the physical processes being controlled and supervised, enabling rapid configuration and deployment of component object-based industrial applications. When deployed, the software improves performance; strengthens security; simplifies installation; increases operator and engineering productivity and efficiency; and supports new high-availability disaster recovery implementations using Windows Server Hyper-V virtualization from Microsoft. In addition, ArchestrA System Platform 2012 software supports all the latest remote desktop services that are part of Windows Server 2008 R2. 

The System Platform 2012 software also provides tighter integration with the company's ArchestrA Workflow and Wonderware InTouch human machine interface software, as well as its extensive portfolio of automation and software applications. Together the improved offerings enable customers to unite their existing automation and IT systems and applications with systems and applications from Invensys, its ecosystem partners and other third-party providers so they function as one, holistic Enterprise Control System. 

The company's ArchestrA Workflow 2012 business process management software enables industrial users to model, execute, analyze and improve work processes inside and outside of their facilities, driving higher levels of collaboration, productivity and innovation. It allows critical operational workflows to be created, deployed, tracked and assessed to drive greater process consistency and accountability. The software is also part of the company's Integrated Development Environment so system builders can easily add process workflows to their existing applications and extend these applications to other parts of their organizations, allowing consistent execution of standard practices, helping improve production consistency and driving compliance with regulatory requirements.
