According to ARC Research Director Craig Resnick, who authors ARC's HMI Software Worldwide Outlook Study, "FactoryLink has an established history and a large installed base in an HMI/SCADA marketplace that has ridden many technology waves. The FactoryLink 7.2 release should reaffirm to both the HMI/SCADA marketplace and the existing FactoryLink/USDATA installed base that Tecnomatix is making a long-term commitment. Tecnomatix's message to their installed base focuses on providing innovative solutions with seamless upgrade paths that will not require those users to rebuild their existing applications to take advantage of new versions."
