This blog is dedicated to open, interoperable manufacturing software and the coolest, latest and greatest things I see every day while conducting business under the banner of Inductive Automation.

Hello, my name is Steve Hechtman and I am president of Inductive Automation. During the span of one day there is more excitement, more discovery than I can possibly keep to myself. This blog is, therefore, my outlet. WARNING: This site is highly biased in favor of the most powerful, affordable manufacturing software in the world - Ignition by Inductive Automation!

Dukes Choice Award 2011 - we won!

Colby and Carl spent all of last week at Oracle's JavaOne convention in San Francisco. At the show, Oracle awarded Inductive Automation the Duke's Choice Award for Innovative Industrial Software.

According to Oracle "The Duke's Choice Awards celebrate extreme innovation in the world of Java technology and are granted to the most innovative projects using the Java platform." There are only ten Dukes Choice Awards given each year so we are very honored to win. Colby and Carl said they were treated like mini-celebrities during the entire convention.

There were about 45,000 attendees at the joint OpenWorld /JavaOne convention this year. The JavaOne attendance alone was estimated at double that of last year. Java is clearly on the rise.

Carl and Colby were interviewed at the show and you can watch it here. Great job guys!
