Webalo today announced the launch of Webalo 4.5, the latest version of its transformative, no-code app generation platform.

What makes this release special? Here are some of the new features:

  • Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform - Webalo 4.5 further extends Webalo’s cloud deployment capabilities by adding support for Microsoft Azure. Already available as an AWS cloud computing service, Webalo 4.5 adds single-tenant Azure support for enterprises that have selected Azure as their corporate virtualization platform.
  • Extended integration with industrial data sources – Webalo 4.5 now supports out-of-the-box integration with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) that make the MES data more actionable and visible to all stakeholders.
  • New charts - Webalo 4.5 includes Timeline, Pareto and SPC control charts to provide users with more insight, control over and interaction with their data.
  • Asset Model View – Webalo 4.5 now provides automatically-generated and interactive asset model views that allow users to browse and find objects of interest. The Asset Model View also provides a list of operations presented with various visualization options for any selected asset.   Actions include:
    • View & browse the asset tree using the Webalo Desktop Client
    • View a list of operations tied to asset hierarchy
    • Visualization configuration on an operation
    • Saving, renaming, deleting visualizations into/from “My Tasks” in the Home screen.
  • Contextualized dashboards—Webalo 4.5 introduces dynamic, interactive Key Performance Indicator and chart dashboards, driven by user inputs, with the capability to add parameters to the dashboards. Webalo’s contextualized dashboards provide embedded asset hierarchy, selectable timeframes and custom user inputs.
  • User-Generated Dashboards - Webalo end users can now create and save their own dashboards. These Webalo “workspaces” can include content and layout views. As an example, one workspace could be used for an overview of the plant, including high level charts and dashboards, while a second workspace might be for downtime entry forms and for launching workflows to take action based on the machine status, and a third workspace could be focused on Historian trend charts. Users can save, retrieve and switch back and forth between workspaces at any time.
