Innovyze Releases InfoWater Generation V11.5, Powered With Comprehensive Pump System Analyst Extension Suite and Direct SCADA Connectivity
Broomfield, Colo., Jan. 13, 2015 — In its ongoing quest to equip the global water industry with the world’s most powerful and comprehensive GIS-centric infrastructure modeling and management solutions, Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide availability of the V11.5 Generation of InfoWater for ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA).
The release further confirms Innovyze’s strong commitment to meeting the requirements of its user base and the increasing demands of the global water industry. With this version, Innovyze has further refined the superb water supply and distribution modeling and analysis features that have helped make it a leading choice among the world’s top water utilities. InfoWater has long been renowned for its extreme performance and comprehensive toolsets and extensions. Now, by exponentially accelerating the large model building process and automating scores of tedious tasks, InfoWater V11.5 enables power users to create, analyze and design better, more complete, and more accurate models in a fraction of the time required by competing software — enabling users to meet increasingly tighter project deadlines. And now, with direct integration to remote SCADA sites (PLCs), users can readily make use of detailed real-time performance information such as flow, pressure, tank level and pump and valve setting data to maintain continuously calibrated models and validate them for improved decision making and real-time response strategies. V11.5’s comprehensive data analysis and graphing (statistical and trending) tools let users convert huge quantities of real-time field data into actionable information they can use to manage, plan and improve.
The new Pump System Analyst (PSA) extension makes sophisticated pump station design easy for virtually any engineer, regardless of technical expertise. Users can now quickly determine whether a pump station meets pumping capacity requirements and design an improvement plan to best meet system needs and maintain optimal pumping efficiency. Both series and parallel pumps are fully supported in determining the best options for pump station upgrades, and multiple pump curves and system head curves can be displayed simultaneously on a single graph. V11.5’s new flow animation feature allows users to view and thoroughly analyze the model’s flow movement dynamic activity during an extended period simulation. Animation speed can be set and adjusted interactively during any given simulation time period.
Built atop ArcGIS, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality directly within the powerful ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and dynamic water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization, the suite comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their distribution systems.
The software also serves as a base platform for advanced smart network modeling, operation, capital planning and asset management extensions. Among these critical applications are IWLive (real-time operations and security); InfoWater UDF (unidirectional flushing); CapPlan (risk-based capital planning); InfoMaster andInfoMaster Mobile (asset integrity management and condition assessment); InfoWater MSX (multi-species, temperature, and particle transport/deposition modeling); InfoWater BTX (event/particle backtracking); InfoSurge(surge/transient analysis); Sustainability (carbon footprint calculation); BalanceNet (real-time energy management and operations optimization); PressureWatch (real-time network hydraulic integrity monitoring);QualWatch (real-time network water quality integrity monitoring); SCADAWatch (real-time business intelligence and performance monitoring); DemandWatch (water demand forecasting); and DemandAnalyst (real-time water demand and diurnal pattern estimations).
These advancements propel the InfoWater family of solutions into the next generation, furthering Innovyze’s time-honored practice of continually adding critical value to its software and bringing unsurpassed modeling and design capabilities into the mainstream. The suite has the robustness and feature set needed to handle the most demanding analyses. Yet it’s intuitive enough for new users to master without a drawn-out learning curve, making it the ultimate GIS-centric decision support tool for water supply and distribution systems. Like all Innovyze products, InfoWater V11.5 is backed by unparalleled high-touch technical support. For an even faster return on investment, organizations may opt to call on Innovyze Implementation Services to accelerate deployment, integration and implementation of best modeling practices.
“At Innovyze, we enable our customers to predict real-world water and wastewater infrastructure performance via fast, accurate and reliable simulation,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, NAE, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, the company’s President, COO and Chief Technical Officer. “Our new release makes it easy for engineers to quickly analyze and design increasingly large and complex water distribution networks and derive solutions that help them achieve their most critical business goals. This enhanced smart water network modeling and management solutions suite provides the ultimate decision support tool for optimal results.”
