Enhancements include the latest Java Enterprise Edition 7 (EE7) and new HTML5 zero-footprint, true, thin-client user interfaces (UIs) that eliminate the need for virtual terminals or terminal servers. Users can run the application in a Web browser, easily integrate it into an HMI terminal, and implement it across multiple networks without the need for local installation. Additionally, the thin client UIs can easily be extended to mobile devices. Mobile applications leverage the security mechanisms built into the software, freeing IT from supporting multiple configuration platforms. A new I/O server supports clustering and load balancing; several I/O servers can be assigned a single IP address, so more servers can be added as the data load grows without impacting the application. Should an I/O server fail, a built-in failover capability will automatically switch data collection to another server in the cluster. The I/O server also provides store and forward services for controlled, real-time data exchange with remote or cloud-based databases. The software's notification service now drives alerts based on work flow; notifications are triggered by system-based events, such as an order start or out-of-spec quality event, letting operations know it is time to perform critical tasks, before, during or after production.
