Intergraph® Launches SmartPlant® Cloud To Speed Up Project Execution, Reduce Costs And Improve Operating Plant Performance.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph announces the launch of SmartPlant ® Cloud, the company's Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, a dynamic cloud computing environment to support the entire SmartPlant Enterprise portfolio. SmartPlant Cloud removes the need for customer hardware and infrastructure and allows users to access SmartPlant Enterprise applications, project and plant maintenance environments via a simple URL, regardless of global location. SmartPlant Cloud presents all users with their relevant information, data and documents to support each user's work processes and decision-making.

SmartPlant Cloud provides a software ecosystem that allows engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and owner operator companies to provision users with the required engineering software tools and utilities. The service, which is accessed through an intuitive web-based portal, has been configured to adapt to company specific standards, engineering workflows and processes. SmartPlant Cloud provides rapid deployment, robust security and a dynamically scalable environment that has been designed to specifically support all sizes of projects and assets for both the owner operators and EPC's, regardless of global location.  Intergraph has been supplying SaaS to a select customer base for a few years already, and it is now making it commercially available.

"The first SmartPlant Cloud customers are very enthusiastic about the solution," said Kevin Holmes, Intergraph vice president and global director of Cloud Services. "All plant models, data, drawings and documents can be created, modified, viewed and retrieved from SmartPlant Cloud, whether these are SmartPlant Enterprise tools or a number of selected third-party applications currently delivered from SmartPlant Cloud. SmartPlant Cloud allows customers and their subcontractors in capital projects and operating facilities to design workflows, standardize processes and create templates that can be replicated across projects, teams and regions."

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "Global projects are larger and more complex and therefore, plant design software and engineering data solutions need to respond quickly to these challenges.  Cloud computing represents one step further in serving our customers, to allow them rapid and cost-effective decision-making and execution.  So, we are excited to add SmartPlant Cloud services as an option to clients in addition to our existing and very successful enterprise software business model, so that clients can choose what's best for their situation."

The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph as the No. 1 overall worldwide provider of engineering design solutions for industry according to its "Engineering Design Tools for Industry and Infrastructure Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast Through 2016."
