Release Note 2016

MIKE OPERATIONS

Introduction

Welcome to MIKE OPERATIONS Release 2016. In this Release Note, you will find information about new features of MIKE OPERATIONS, and what you need to know in order to install and get started with Release 2016.

MIKE OPERATIONS is a new member of the MIKE product family introduced with Release 2016. It is a software product designed for model-based forecast services and for online operational control of river systems, water collection systems and water distribution systems. MIKE OPERATIONS allows you to quickly and safely build simple real-time systems while offering flexible tools that help you deal with complexities within real-time modelling.

MIKE OPERATIONS is a product consolidation of software tools developed and applied in projects over the past 6-7 years. Hence, although MIKE OPERATIONS is a new member of the MIKE product family it builds on proven software, which already serve a large number of clients worldwide. With the 2016 release we are now pleased to offer MIKE OPERATIONS as a standardized MIKE software product.

Non-supported but partially tested operating systems **
Windows 8.1 Pro (32 bit), Windows 10 Pro (32 bit) and Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Service Pack 1 (64 bit).

Software requirements .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 4.0 (Full Profile)

* Fully supported operating systems are systems that have been tested in accordance with MIKE's Quality Assurance procedures and where warranty and software maintenance agreement conditions apply.

** Non-supported but partially tested operating systems are systems, which are not officially supported by the MIKE software products. These operating systems have only undergone very limited testing for the purpose of MIKE software, but the software and key features are likely to work. Installation of MIKE software on a non-supported operating system is done so at the user's own risk. The MIKE software warranty and software maintenance agreement conditions do not apply for unsupported operating systems and DHI is under no obligation to provide assistance or troubleshooting for cases where the software is being used on a non-supported operating system.

Please note that single user installations are not allowed on server operating systems. Also, when running a fully supported operating system as a 'guest operating system' on a virtualisation platform, it is automatically downgraded to a non-supported operating system under the conditions provided above.
