Intergraph Corporation is an American software development and services company.
It provides enterprise engineering and geospatially powered software to businesses, governments, and organizations around the world. Intergraph operates through two divisions: Process, Power & Marine (PP&M) and Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I). The company’s headquarters is in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. In 2008, Intergraph was one of the hundred largest software companies in the world. In 2010, Intergraph was acquired by Hexagon AB.
Intergraph was founded in 1969 as M&S Computing, Inc., by former IBM engineers who had been working with NASA and the U.S. Army in developing systems that would apply digital computing to real-time missile guidance.
From this initial work, M&S Computing was among the pioneers in the development of interactive computer graphics systems, which allowed engineers to display and interact with drawings and associated alphanumeric information. The company changed its name to Intergraph Corporation in 1980 to reflect this activity.
SmartPlant Instrumentation, previously marketed as INtools, reflects Intergraph?s continuing investment in SmartPlant technology and its use in SmartPlantInstrumentation, such as The Engineering Framework integration, Enhanced SmartLoop, easily navigable plant hierarchy display and SmartPlant suite code compatibility. The SmartPlant Instrumentation product name also reflects the market achievements of INtools combined with the brand recognition of SmartPlant. Intergraph acquired INtools in 1999 and the software has since become a de facto market standard and key growth product for Intergraph. SmartPlant Instrumentation, powered by INtools,continues to answer the instrumentation engineering, design and lifecycle plant operations requirements of plant owner-operators and engineering firms worldwide.
Smartplant Instrumentation is the advance version of the INtools. Till V6.0 it was called as INtools and when Intergraph upgraded and launched the same to the 7.0 they named, it as Smartplant Instrumentation i.e, after V7.0 INtools is known as Smartplant Instrumentation and the latest version for the same is SPI2007 which the widely used in any engineering organization.
In 2000, Intergraph exited the hardware business and became purely a software company. On July 21, 2000, it sold its Intense3D graphics accelerator division to 3DLabs, and its workstation and server division to Silicon Graphics.
From 2000 to 2006, Intergraph underwent a major transformation in its market strategy. In 2004, the company executed its three-phased business transformation plan called “Now,” “Next,” and “After-Next.” In the “Now” phase, Intergraph rebranded itself and more than doubled its operating income. The “Next” phase brought additional focus to Intergraph’s business, allowing the company to redeploy assets and resources to further invest in its differentiated capabilities and focus on the areas of business and technology that provided the greatest value. Intergraph consolidated its operations to be more closely aligned to its strategic plan. The company experienced its strongest annual revenue growth in more than ten years.
On November 29, 2006, Intergraph was acquired by an investor group led by Hellman & Friedman LLC, and Texas Pacific Group and JMI Equity, making the company privately held. Now in the “After Next” phase, Intergraph is focused on growth. The company offers comprehensive enterprise engineering and geospatially powered software solutions for vertical industries, including public safety, security, defense and intelligence, utilities, communications, photogrammetry, government, transportation, process, power, and marine.
On January 6, 2010, Intergraph acquired COADE® Holdings Inc., provider of CAESAR II®, PV Elite® and TANK™ products, the industry’s most widely used software for pipe stress, pressure vessel and storage tank analysis, as well as its popular CADWorx® plant design suite. The strategic acquisition of COADE was Intergraph’s largest in the process, power and marine market,and greatly expanded Intergraph’s SmartPlant® Enterprise engineering solution suite. COADE products are now grouped under Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions.
Most recently, on October 28, 2010, Intergraph was acquired by Hexagon AB. The transaction marks the return of Intergraph as part of a publicly traded company. As part of the Hexagon acquisition, Hexagon moved the managemment of ERDAS, Inc. from under Leica Geosystems to Intergraph.
