Wonderware IntelaTrac Ups Mobile Presentation Functionality

Feb. 11, 2009
Wonderware has announced that future releases of its  mobile workforce and decision support system software, IntelaTrac, will leverage new Microsoft technologies for improved presentation and reporting functionality for the mobile workforce.Wonderware will be adding compatibility with several of Microsoft's enhanced .NET Framework 3.0 capabilities. Future Wonderware IntelaTrac developments will feature Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), which is a graphical subsystem in .NET Framework 3.0 that uses a markup language known as XAML for rich user interface development.  "With current Wonderware development efforts focused on the .NET framework, WPF is the next logical step for enhancing the functionality of IntelaTrac," said John Madden, director of product development for Wonderware Mobile Solutions. "We expect that the clean separation between the user interface and business logic that WPF supports will greatly increase Wonderware software development productivity. Wonderware also expects to be able to speed our quality assurance and issue resolution times, while simultaneously speeding time-to-market for future releases of Wonderware IntelaTrac. "In addition, we believe that the commonality between Microsoft WPF and Silverlight technologies should enable Wonderware to more easily extend some desktop experiences to the Web and mobile clients."Wonderware IntelaTrac software reporting also will be enhanced with the addition of connectivity to Microsoft's SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). SSRS is a server-based report generation software system from Microsoft that can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports via the Internet. Wonderware currently offers a custom reporting solution with IntelaTrac. With the addition of SSRS, Wonderware can deliver new reporting features more quickly, according to the company. By adopting a proven reporting platform like SSRS, Wonderware will be able to focus its efforts on feature upgrade requests.For more information, visit: http://global.wonderware.com.
