Supporting integrators and organizations with industrial automation solutions since 2003, Inductive Automation was facilitating Digital Transformation before it was cool. That experience means our flagship product, Ignition, is a fully developed and battle-tested tool. It also comes with unlimited tags and clients for one flat price, so companies can transform their processes however they want. That’s why thousands of companies representing nearly every industry trust Ignition in their Digital Transformation journey.
The Practical Platform for Problem Solvers
More than just replacing clipboards with dashboards, true Digital Transformation goes beyond technology and equipment. It’s about connecting people, processes, and programs. Ignition is a platform that uses data to bridge all three. It’s a simple solution for organizations wanting to transform their technological processes, and a practical platform for integrators and service providers looking to deliver results.

So why is Ignition by Inductive Automation® the right fit? It’s an all-in-one data aggregation and asset management tool that serves as a central hub. Like integrators coordinate and consolidate software with hardware and networks, Ignition does the same for data — it collects and connects.
Instead of logging in to separate software for each task or function, Ignition users enjoy a single platform with one login to do everything. Generate reporting and set up alarms or notifications, or operate plant floor machines from a cell phone dashboard — all without licensing restrictions.
Rapid Development & Deployment
From its web-based nature to its built-in Designer, Ignition enables users to easily develop custom apps and solutions for unique functions and quickly deploy them in cloud or hybrid environments.
Compatible, Scalable & Affordable
Don’t fret over compatibility: Ignition runs universally on any device with any OS or on any IT structure. And, its unlimited licensing model and scalable format make collecting data and connecting people far easier and more affordable than you might think.
Dynamic Data Visualization
Create dashboards, charts, and animations that deliver decisive data to anybody on any device. A capable communications tool for wired desktop computers or web-based mobile apps, Ignition makes research, data analysis, and monitoring performance fast and easy.
“Ignition is a building block of Digital Transformation. In the OT sector, it can help a company take a huge leap forward. Its power will change lives!”
– Hugh Roddy, Chobani
Ideal for SCADA systems and fluent in HMI and MQTT protocols, Ignition is a natural-born data aggregator and master of metrics. The data analytics and insights gained from gathering live and historical OT data and converting it to IT data that connects to apps and dashboards that control workflows is a one-two punch that boosts efficiency.
Gather and share data over any network
Control machines and automate processes
Generate reports, alarms, and notifications
Develop custom applications without coding
Ignition is a single platform that brings order to the chaos of integrating multiple technologies. Establishing an intricate IIoT with which to gather, report, and share data is quick and easy using the Cirrus Link Solutions MQTT modules in Ignition. Communication improves as the silos between departments and teams are broken.
Connect devices and collect data in seconds
Establish a single source of truth & data standardization
Rapidly deploy clients and applications
Monitor and manage assets at any time from anywhere
“Data drives Digital Transformation. Ignition provides the predictive data and analytics, and the preventative maintenance that we need to monitor gas levels. It’s not rocket science, use the data!”
– Peter Photos, Streamline Innovations
