Innovyze Releases InfoWater Generation V11, Defining New Era of Leadership in GIS-Centric Smart Water Network Modeling
Network Simulation Advancements Bring Faster and More Accurate Results to Users
Broomfield, Colorado, USA, — 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 Generation of InfoWater for ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA).
The release is a further confirmation of Innovyze’s strong commitment to meeting the requirements of its user base and the increasing demands of the global water industry. In it, 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 legendary power, speed, and comprehensive toolsets and extensions. By exponentially accelerating the large model building process and automating scores of tedious tasks, InfoWater V11 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. New user-driven enhancements make sophisticated dynamic network modeling and design easy for virtually every engineer, regardless of technical expertise. Additional advances include new remotely controlled pressure regulating and pressure sustaining valves, enhanced variable speed pump modeling, and improved graphical results presentation.
“InfoWater is the water network modelling standard for Thames Water and we have been using it with great success,” said Paolo Teixeira, Consultant Modeller for Thames Water Utilities Ltd in the UK. “We are also very pleased with the excellent support provided by Innovyze. The company respects and values its customers, listens to their needs and quickly implements their feedback. InfoWater’s new remotely controlled pressure regulating valve feature will help us more accurately analyze our water system and optimize its operational performance.”
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 InfoWater product 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 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 predict real-world water and wastewater infrastructure performance using fast, accurate and reliable simulation,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, NAE, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “Our new release makes it easy for engineers to quickly analyze increasingly large and complex water distribution networks and derive optimal solutions that help them achieve their most important business goals. This enhanced smart water network modeling and management solutions suite provides the ultimate decision support tool for optimal results.”
