HORIZONT is a software development company located in Munich, Germany. The company was founded in 1993 as R.O.S.E. by five OPC (now TWS) consultants. Due to legal conflicts, the name was changed to HORIZONT in 1997.
The company's first product was OPC/Graph (now TWS/Graph), net plan display software for TWS, which was developed together with IBM Germany. With more than 150 customers worldwide, it has become the de facto standard for TWS compatible software. Additional products include TWS/BatchAD, TWS/BatchCP and TWS/Audit, rounding off the TWS product line.
With the introduction of XINFO in 1997 (SmartIS in the US in 1999), HORIZONT took a big step into a much wider market. XINFO (SmartIS in USA) integrates with schedulers other than TWS, for example CA-7, CA-Scheduler, APM, Control-M or ZEKE. In 2002 HORIZONT released DSN/Change and SmartJCL, which are completing the product line. And since 2003 HORIZONT has a new ground-breaking product: TWS/WebAdmin.
