Innovyze Retires InfoWorks CS with Launch of More Powerful Next-Generation InfoWorks ICM SE Collection Systems Modeling Software

New InfoWorks ICM SE Poised to Dominate Sanitary, Storm and Combined Sewer Modeling and Management for Next Decade and Beyond


Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced it has retired its InfoWorks CS software, which is being succeeded by the more powerful, next-generation InfoWorks ICM SE. Current users may continue to use and receive support for InfoWorks CS until December 1, 2015.

Since its initial release in February 2014, InfoWorks ICM SE has rapidly become the solution of choice for collection systems modeling by wastewater utilities and their consultants around the world. InfoWorks ICM SE incorporates all the powerful analysis features and capabilities of InfoWorks ICM for comprehensive sewer collection systems modeling, but without 2D simulation of surface flooding. It gives wastewater utilities an enhanced set of tools and functionalities and an enriched modeling experience for managing and operating sewer networks.

InfoWorks ICM SE is a fully-dynamic sewer network modeling solution that uses a fast, accurate and unconditionally stable implicit numerical solution scheme — delivering a high degree of confidence in simulation results. It can be effectively used to model any complex sanitary, storm and combined sewer system, offering complete hydrology, hydraulic and water quality simulation and sophisticated real-time control (RTC) modeling capabilities. (As a specialized version of InfoWorks ICM, SE does not model overland flow or 2D flooding.) A significantly more powerful version of InfoWorks CS, InfoWorks ICM SE automates many user-intensive operations, helping engineers minimize time spent creating, calibrating and simulating reliable sewer models and analyzing results. 

“Innovyze is committed to providing the best possible products and quality support for its users,” said Mohamed Abdillahi, UK Director of Product Development. “InfoWorks ICM SE is by far the best collection systems modeling software we’ve ever developed for the workgroup management platform. Our product philosophy is quite simply to make bold intellectual investments in superior technologies and to consistently adapt to our customers’ changing needs. Only in this way can we continue to best serve our customers and society for the greater good.”

Commented J. Erick Heath, P.E., Vice President and Americas Business Director, “Innovyze has a rich history of introducing the most powerful and comprehensive dynamic sewer modeling software to the global wastewater community, and InfoWorks ICM SE is the crowning achievement in that long series. Starting with WASSP in 1983 and continuing with Wallrus (1989), SPIDA (1991), HydroWorks (1994), InfoWorks CS (1998) and the latest InfoWorks ICM SE (2014). We are committed to maintaining the momentum of these cutting edge technology introductions to help our customers meet the evolving challenges of the future. It is all about making Innovyze not only the best in the industry but the best for the industry.”

InfoWorks CS users will greatly benefit from an improved interface and enhanced visualization and reporting tools (e.g., undo/redo, recycle bin, no admin program, customized property sheet, dockable Windows and themes). Other significant advantages include substantially faster simulation run times with full 64 bit multi-core processing support; additional modeling capabilities (e.g., SWMM5.1 and modified Horton infiltration method, non-prismatic open channels, H2S, algae, nutrient dynamics); an enhanced database; version control and complete scenario management; multivariable themes and mapping; and stunning graphics. These advanced capabilities make it easier for users to set up, visualize and manage simulations and arrive at fast, reliable solutions to support cost-effective drainage design, operation and management.

“Wastewater utilities around the world rely on Innovyze’s best-in-class network modeling solutions to optimize their collection systems and better serve their customers,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, NAE, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “InfoWorks ICM SE represents a quantum leap in the art and science of sewer collection systems modeling. It is poised to dominate this important industry for the next decade and beyond. Users of InfoWorks CS can now fully leverage the increased power, flexibility, usability and cutting-edge feature set of InfoWorks ICM, along with groundbreaking gains in speed, to easily generate optimized solutions as quickly as possible. This is the next generation of InfoWorks CS — one that empowers engineers worldwide with unprecedented levels of sewer collection system modeling and simulation flexibility.”
