“ICONICS is well-known as a proponent of Microsoft and for integrating Microsoft technologies within its products such as GENESIS64”, said Craig Resnick, research director at ARC Advisory Group. “ARC expects that ICONICS will fully leverage the capabilities of the latest Microsoft products such as Silverlight to address the trend, being deployed by many successful manufacturers, of using real-time visualization solutions to ensure that any problems are exposed as they occur on the plant floor. This is a welcome trend to workers on the plant floor, especially when they are empowered to stop the manufacturing process and fix the problems as they occur to get the product quality right the first time, which is one of the primary benefits of real-time industrial automation.”
