Dream Report for InduSoft Web Studio

InduSoft With Dream Report

Dream Report OEM for InduSoft Web Studio:

To license, contact Ocean Data Systems

Dream Report is a flexible and comprehensive tool with a friendly user interface where users can create and customize their own reports using tools such as tables, bar charts, pie charts, screen shots, and many other report styles and formatting. Users can also create automatically generated reports that cannot be changed or edited, for use when meeting industrial and regulatory standards.

Dream Report has partnered with InduSoft, creating a special Dream Report OEM version, so that users who wish to have additional or extended professional reporting capabilities beyond what is available in Web Studio, are able to have access to this powerful add-on. The Dream Report OEM version costs considerably less than the full DR version sold by Ocean Data Systems. The OEM version however only contains the drivers needed for allowing connectivity to InduSoft Web Studio. Connectivity to other devices and databases must utilize built-in InduSoft Web Studio functionality when using the DR OEM version.

By using Dream Report with InduSoft Web Studio, users can easily access, visualize, and report on history data (alarm history, trend history, OEE data, and process data) from InduSoft Web Studio applications.

How Dream Report Licensing Works


Dream Report OEM licensing is sold on a 1 to 1 tag basis according to the InduSoft Development and Runtime licenses that you purchased and are using in your machine configurations. Each Dream Report OEM license is only available as a Softkey, so each license is tied to the machine that the activation.dat file has been generated from. Valid Dream Report OEM Licenses allow report development/changes to your reports and will also run the DR Runtime Management Console, limited by the number of tags in the license.

As with InduSoft Web Studio licenses, Dream Report can have:

  • a Development and Runtime license on a single machine, or

  • a single Dev & Runtime DR license purchased with an IWS Dev & Runtime license that is split between separate Development and Runtime machines (when the IWS license is already split) if desired, or

  • you can purchase separate single licenses for a Development machine and Runtime machine (e.g., example: a 64,000 Tag development license and a 1500 Tag Runtime license-- This option is usually chosen by an SI or Development Team creating many runtime projects.)

Upgrading your machine

License version upgrades are available in order to take advantage of newer DR OEM product features. An upgrade can be purchased for existing Dream Report OEM installations without having to pay full price for the newer version license. Purchases of Dream Report OEM are for a one-time machine-license installation only. Having a valid Maintenance and Support Contract however, will allow DR software upgrades and machine reloads of the licenses. Please contact your salesperson for pricing.

Maintenance and Support Contracts are Available

You can purchase a Maintenance and Support Contract for your Dream Report OEM installations. The purchase of a maintenance agreement will protect your Dream Report OEM investment by allowing upgrades of Dream Report and/or reinstallation of current version licenses. Note: Reinstallations on a non-licensed machine (e.g., reformatted machines, or new machines used as replacements) require a maintenance agreement, or else a new license for that machine must be purchased. Contact your salesperson for pricing.
