Why Running the Latest Software is Important

Technical Changes 

The software that Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions (ICAS) produces performs computations to address the requirements of Government and Society Codes. These codes change frequently--at least once a year. Using the latest versions of our software programs ensures that your calculations comply with the recent changes and additions made to the codes.

Improved Capabilities

In addition to technical changes, ICAS constantly makes changes to the software to add more capabilities and user-focused enhancements. These improvements allow you to accomplish more with the software while being more efficient. Many of our enhancements are the direct result of user suggestions. 

Environmental Changes 

Your operating environment is ever-changing. Faster, more powerful computers are always available. Operating systems change every 12 to 18 months. Corporations regularly change and upgrade network systems. These continuous changes mean that your application software must adjust to this shifting environment. Using the latest versions of our software ensures that your software continues to run in your environment, trouble-free.

Application Corrections 

Some people are surprised to learn that commercial software contains errors. It is a known fact that all software contains errors, no matter how well-tested. Software vendors who refuse to acknowledge errors are being less than honest. ICAS makes it our policy to correct software errors as soon as possible, and post all hotfixes and patches containing solutions to our users via the Internet.

By using the latest versions of our software programs, you ensure that the software you use has updates to all reported errors from previous versions, and that any newly discovered errors can be patched from the Internet. (Builds only apply to the latest version of the software, and out-of-date versions cannot be corrected.)
