Flexware Innovation was recently honored with a Firebrand Award at the Ignition Community Conference (ICC) for our work developing an Ignition ecosystem which allows our client, American Water, the ability to make data-driven decisions across the company. Flexware is honored to receive this prestigious award which is presented annually to integrators that have demonstrated the versatility of the Ignition platform in innovative applications.
More organizations are bringing Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) together to assist in business decisions at every level of the organization. American Water teamed up with Flexware Innovation and Automated Controls Concepts (ACC) to create an Ignition ecosystem for SCADA/HMI standards, central data collection and analysis, and integration with other backend systems to support data-driven decision-making across the company. This project was the first and largest-scale standardization of their operational technology systems, and consisted of converting an outdated SCADA system to a modern system that is ISA 101-compliant. Ignition Perspective and Cirrus Link MQTT modules were included as key parts of this solution.

I’m drawn to better and smarter ways of working and communicating, to continuously improve work for me, my team, my company, the community. Often times the answer is technology and sometimes it’s not. I’m drawn to the mission of Flexware Innovation for these reasons. We’re committed to unleashing the potential of technology, freeing up leaders to focus on what’s next.
