InfoWater, InfoSewer, InfoSWMM, and InfoMaster Run Directly Inside ArcGIS 10.1

Broomfield, Colorado USA -- Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced the full compatibility of its GIS-centric products with ArcGIS 10.1, the latest ArcGIS release from Esri (Redlands, CA). Innovyze is committed to providing the water and wastewater industry with powerful, easy-to-use smart water network modeling and management solutions that are more technologically advanced and perform faster than any others available on the market today.

“ArcGIS is the leading enterprise GIS software for water and wastewater utilities around the world,” said Innovyze President and COO Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE. “As part of the Innovyze commitment to continually providing novel and incremental improvements and impeccable customer service, we ensure that our products are compatible with ArcGIS solutions on the day they are released. As an Esri Gold Business Partner, we are in constant communication with Esri so that Innovyze software works smoothly and efficiently with their latest releases.”

Built atop ArcGIS, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated analytics, systems dynamics, and optimization functionality directly within the ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and water quality simulations, event backtracking analysis, and energy cost and carbon footprint 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 modeling, operational, asset management, and capital planning extensions. Among these critical applications are IWLive (real-time operations and security), InfoWater UDF (unidirectional flushing). CapPlan Water (risk-based capital planning), InfoWater MSX (multispecies, temperature, and particle transport and deposition modeling). InfoSurge (transient analysis and design), and InfoWater VCM (valve criticality assessment).

InfoSewer is used worldwide by municipal engineers and planners to create detailed, accurate models of their sewer infrastructure systems. With these models users can evaluate the effect of new developments, zoning changes, and other additional loads on system flows; pinpoint current and future problem areas; predict overflows and backups; and determine how to best restore (and with the least rehabilitation) needed capacity lost to infiltration and inflow. In addition, users rely on these models to compute hydrogen sulfide generation and corrosion potential; analyze the rate of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) exertion; track sediment movement and deposition; trace pollutant contribution from source nodes; perform time-of-concentration pipe calculations; calculate the amount of pollutant transported to the wastewater treatment plant; and assess pollutants’ impacts on receiving waters. Extensive scenario management and automated design tools give users the ability to analyze existing or future sewage collection systems.

The only urban drainage modeling solution certified by the National Association of GIS-centric Software, the full-featured InfoSWMM analysis and design program delivers the highest rate of return in the industry. All operations of a typical sewer system — from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, pollution prediction, sediment transport and deposition, urban flooding, real-time control, and record keeping — are addressed in a single, fully integrated geoengineering environment. The program’s powerful hydraulic and water quality computational engine is based on the current SWMM 5 version, which is endorsed by the USEPA and certified by FEMA. These features and more result in an enhanced modeling experience and greater realism of displayed results — advantages that translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, higher accuracy, better efficiency, and improved designs. InfoSWMM also serves as a robust base platform for advanced modeling, operational, and capital planning. Some of these critical applications include InfoSWMM 2D (two-dimensional surface flood modeling), CapPlan Sewer (risk-based capital planning and asset performance modeling), and RDII Analyst (rainfall-dependent inflow and infiltration planning and analysis).

InfoMaster revolutionizes the business analytics and optimization (BAO) industry for water and wastewater utilities with its “out-of-the-box” approach to geospatial wet infrastructure asset management, a distinct point of differentiation from traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. Where the typical enterprise software deployment requires a 12- to 18-month implementation cycle, InfoMaster can be deployed in just a day to a few weeks. Where other ERP systems are focused on electronic records management, InfoMaster is built from the ground up to provide superior business analytics and modeling capabilities. Thanks to the software’s unique capabilities, utilities for the first time can now manage and control both the flow of data and the flow of water for better, faster, and more accurate decision making. And because InfoMaster allows data to be organized by project, a single BAO package can now be utilized by both the utility and its engineering consultants with enormous flexibility to manage data for multiple utilities.
