Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the release of InfoNet Suite Generation V16.0, a comprehensive solution for managing physical assets in water, wastewater, and storm water networks. The latest release allows enterprises of all sizes to manage all types of assets and their hierarchical relationships — encompassing treatment plants, infrastructures, facilities, transportation and communications. These capabilities give utilities more ways to prolong the useful life of their assets, streamline operations, optimize capital planning, improve network asset performance and maintenance, and provide exceptional levels of customer service.
InfoNet Suite enables users to create records for any water- or non-water-related assets in their networks and then effectively manage, integrate, validate, analyze, and report on them. These assets can include roads, signs, benches, schools, buildings, parks and recreation areas, trees, treatment plants, tanks, and pumps as well as water, wastewater and stormwater networks. Users can now gain in-depth view and control of all critical assets that affect regulatory compliance, risk and business performance. The Suite’s powerful modeling capabilities also help users prolong the useful life of their physical assets and improve their performance and operational efficiency at maximum savings, getting more from existing assets. All InfoNet tools can be used with all assets, including data flags, version control, rich thematic maps and SQL analysis.
InfoNet Suite arms users with sophisticated predictive analytics and modeling capabilities, helping them accurately assess the level of asset deterioration and determine both its likelihood and consequence of failure. This critical information facilitates a proactive approach to identifying and managing these high-risk assets to help preserve their integrity and keep them operating well into the future. It also eliminates reactive maintenance — waiting for asset failures to occur before repairing. Users can create reliable, cost-effective, risk-based capital improvement plans that enhance operational efficiency and quality of service and keep assets performing at peak condition while making the most of limited budgets.
With these unique, cutting edge capabilities, InfoNet Suite ensures well-informed, swift, cost-effective and action-oriented decision making for both day-to-day operational management and long-term network planning. To gain the clearest possible picture of their network infrastructures, users can integrate a host of applications and data sets they already use, including generic GIS, corporate databases, maintenance management systems, field data systems, SCADA, hydraulic modeling/analysis software and other corporate applications. The software can also directly integrate with the powerful Esri (Redlands, CA) ArcGIS (9.x-10.x) platform.
The comprehensive nature of InfoNet Suite supports the increasingly widespread industry adoption of GIS, modeling technology and predictive analytics, propelling its applications into the next generation. It also furthers Innovyze’s time-honored practice of continually adding value to its software and bringing unmatched asset modeling and management capabilities, backed by unsurpassed technical support, into the mainstream.
Based on customers’ feedback on expanding InfoNet Suite capabilities with asset hierarchy, V16.0 introduces the ability to specify any user-defined relationships between different types of assets and maintenance activities within the enterprise. This allows complex hierarchical data models to be constructed, improving the user’s ability to represent network assets, maintenance activities and the relationships between them. These user relationships are automatically integrated into InfoNet’s existing task scheduling, object navigation and querying capabilities, allowing quick, user-friendly access to the data and generation of detailed reports on management of network information.
V16.0 also introduces a powerful Object Browser that gives the user a clear overview of the relationships between the different asset and maintenance types and simplifies data management. In addition to the capabilities of the Innovyze Workgroup database, this release provides support for user-defined objects and relationships hosted within Oracle and SQL Server databases.

“Organizations worldwide face the constant challenge of sustaining their assets with limited resources,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.MASCE, NAE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “InfoNet Suite can now easily replace and improve on even the leading enterprise asset management solutions in meeting this challenge. The software’s comprehensive asset management, advanced analytics and data collection and analysis capabilities empower organizations to better assess and understand current conditions, predict and fix problems before they occur, prioritize investments, assess return on investment for smarter decisions, and strengthen their infrastructure assets in a phased manner. They are also invaluable aids in reducing operational and capital spending, meeting service expectations and regulatory requirements, and putting their assets on the road to sustainability. The improvements in V16.0 will also help enterprises determine how to best invest their limited capital dollars, optimize their capital improvement programs and return on assets, effectively strengthen the useful lives of their physical assets, modernize their systems and provide a higher level of service to their customers. It is all about doing more, better and faster, with less.”
