Invensys acquires SmartGlance
14 June 2013
Industrial software provider Invensys has acquired Sarla Analytics’ SmartGlance mobile reporting product.
SmartGlance is an industrial mobile reporting business app, which delivers secure, on-demand access to rich, graphical reports from any operations data source via mobile devices, including Windows 8 tablets. It allows industrial personnel to make smarter, faster decisions from anywhere, at any time and on any device.
“Acquiring this technology accelerates our delivery of solutions that leverage the power of mobile devices and managed systems via cloud and SaaS models,” said Rob McGreevy, vice president of platform and applications software solutions at Invensys. “It strengthens our current leadership position in mobile industrial data reporting and reinforces our commitment to deliver access to information, analytics and key performance indicators to a user’s device of choice.”
SmartGlance provides connectors for accessing data from different manufacturing sources, including both Invensys and non-Invensys systems. The product, which will become part of the Invensys Wonderware portfolio, offers Invensys customers real-time access to important business data alerts and notifications. It also allows them to view that information in a native mobile application optimised for any mobile device. The solution permits the ability to push data from virtually any data source, including popular process historians and any SQL database.
