HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph® Process, Power & Marine, part of Hexagon and the world's leading provider of enterprise engineering software enabling smarter design and operation of plants, ships and offshore facilities, announces the release of Intergraph Smart™ Enterprise Portal. Smart Enterprise Portal is a new web-based information search engine that fully supports the entire facility life cycle process – engineering, procurement, construction and operations.
Smart Enterprise Portal allows users to easily locate, navigate (graphically and contextually) and create reports on data, documents and drawings that reside in many different sources without leaving the application. If an object is located in more than one file, a different file can be opened with the same object highlighted. Deep-linking technology enables bookmarking for later use and easy sharing with other parties.
Smart Enterprise Portal is blazing fast! Testing found that uncached tag queries were returned in less than 1.5 seconds with 150 concurrent users and over 4 million tags.
Smart Enterprise Portal also boasts several key features to enhance the overall user experience:
- Accessible from desktop computer, tablet and mobile device browser
- Makes relevant reports visible to all plant life cycle and project participants
- Ease of re-use for new projects
- Requires minimum configuration and skill level to administer
- Has a thin-client architecture with no installation on client system for easy deployment
- It is scalable, responsive and cloud deployable
For Intergraph Smart Enterprise Portal users, the primary benefits of this new solution are its ability to link multiple data sources together instead of working in silos; to provide all facility life cycle participants with a way to find information quickly; and the ability to be deployed from project to project rapidly.
"The new Smart Enterprise Portal provides an intuitive user interface that helps connect engineers to pertinent design data quickly with little to no training," said Kyle Miller, associate applications engineer for Burns & McDonnell. "The No. 1 mission of this team is 'ease of use,' which they have artfully employed by using the latest application interaction features that users expect."
Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine's executive vice president of global business development and marketing, said, "The teams have focused on the user experience, both speed and usability, and it shows in the demo. The ease of use of Smart Enterprise Portal allows companies to find information very quickly from different data sites."
