The Ignition Platform
Who owns Ignition?
Ignition is owned by Inductive Automation from California, US.
Why was Ignition developed in the first place?
The initial goal from Inductive Automation was to develop an alternative to existing SCADA solutions. (Note how cleverly we avoided using the word disrupt.) Now Ignition is so much more.
What is The Ignition Platform?
It’s a powerful integrated development environment where you can create any kind of industrial application.
Can I test the Ignition Platform myself?
You can download Ignition for free and play around with the platform as much as you like. You can also contact us. We’ll be more than happy to show you how it works (for free of course).
