AUSTIN, TEXAS – Frost & Sullivan presented its European Innovation Award to InduSoft for InduSoft Web Studio Version 6.1. Frost & Sullivan indicated the reason InduSoft was chosen for the award in a statement today, “InduSoft Web Studio v6.1 is a powerful and well-integrated foundation for developing HMI and SCADA applications on all supported Microsoft operating systems—including the latest platform—Microsoft Vista. In the automation and control industry, this capability ensures that InduSoft Web Studio is the only HMI/SCADA solution that runs on almost every type of hardware.”
The Frost & Sullivan innovation award is presented each year to the company that has demonstrated excellence in new products and technologies within their industry. “The recipient, InduSoft, has shown innovation by launching a broad line of emerging products and technologies,” says Frost & Sullivan
To choose a recipient of this award, the analyst team tracks all new product launches, R&D spending, products in development, and new product features and modifications. The Frost and Sullivan analyst team conducts interviews with market participants and performs extensive secondary and technology research. All new product launches and new products in development in each company are compared and evaluated based on the degree of innovation and customer satisfaction. Companies are then ranked by number of new product launches and new products in development. InduSoft won the award from a field of more than 100 other market participants.
“We are honored to receive this award,” says Marcia Gadbois, Vice President of Business Development at InduSoft. “We are especially pleased to win it out of a field of 100 other candidates, which include some of the biggest names in the business, and some of the finest HMI software on the market. For the analysts to judge InduSoft Web Studio as a cut above so many competitors is truly an honor.”
Frost & Sullivan says, “The HMI/SCADA software market has more than 100 participants. However, only a select few participants offer complete HMI/SCADA solutions compatible for mobile devices and the Web. Vendors that do offer such solutions in this market vary widely in terms of functionality of the HMI/SCADA applications and on particular platforms.”
“InduSoft Web Studio HMI/SCADA software is offered by many industrial control vendors under license from InduSoft, often under private labels.” Frost & Sullivan continues. “It’s apparent that InduSoft leads the way in the competitive European HMI market.”
