While Wonderware has been around for quite some time, the ArchestrA Platform hit its stride when the Systems Platform 3.0 was released in 2007. ArchestrA is an object oriented Industrial Application Platform, which has been built based upon the IEEE object oriented standard. ArchestrA utilizes many of the fundamental aspects of object oriented technology, which can deliver cost savings, as well as help build standards within an organization. In a white paper titled The Benefits of Object-Based Architectures for SCADA and Supervisory Systems, author Steven D. Garbrecht, states that he believes that  “mature object-based architectures can deliver cost savings of up to 80% over tag-based systems”.
