Houston, TX, United States, 2010/11/05 - Lanner Group, the process improvement solution provider and simulator technology specialist, has welcomed global research firm Gartner's recognition of simulation modeling as a top 10 strategic technology for mainstream business in 2011.
Lanner Group, the process improvement solution provider, has welcomed leading IT authority Gartner's recognition of simulation modeling as a strategic technology for mainstream business in its list of 'top 10 strategic technologies' for a second year.
Gartner, Inc. (gartner.com), which outlined its leading technology tips for 2011 last month at its annual symposium in Orlando, FL, advised that companies need to develop “operational analytics” to make predictions and use data mashups.
“This recognition is testament to the fact that businesses continue to recognise the benefits and savings that simulation, modeling and process optimisation can bring,” comments David Jones, CEO, Lanner Group.
“They understand that to stay ahead in business, analysis and simulation are crucial. The reduction in risk that simulation enables, and the ability to conduct leaner, more efficient operations, continues to open up opportunities for Lanner Group."
Gartner's endorsement of simulation in its list "Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2011" comes just weeks ahead of a new release of Lanner Group's flagship simulation-modeling software, WITNESS Power with Ease 3.0.
The software, which is due for release later this month, is built with flexibility and ease of use in mind. It contains further advances in virtual representation, combined with a wide range of new features which enhance the breadth and depth of the solution’s capabilities. A true modeler’s release, the software builds on the core strength of WITNESS to deliver greater scope for results using out-of-the-box functionality.
Some of the key features include:
• Faster, smoother virtual reality with added animation, including walking animation on path and part operation;
• Major new path innovation – multi source, multi destination, faster routing and route caching to facilitate easier, quicker modelling;
• New direct access to event queue timings with time manipulation, which enables hands-on precision modelling capabilities to make fine adjustments;
• Major new elements options for breakdown and setups;
• Greater flexibility;
• Even more linkage to Excel.
Furthermore, WITNESS is now available with Reprise Licensing Management, which offers easy roaming from networks and quick and flexible licensing options.
