IQMS: Das Jahr 2012 im Rückblick

IQMS, ein Entwickler von ERP- und MES-Software für Fertigungsbetriebe, der sich fortwährend aktiv für sein Produkt und seine Kundenbeziehungen einsetzt, hat heute seinen Jahresrückblick auf 2012 angekündigt. Für fast jeden Bereich des Unternehmens war es ein Jahr mit aggressiven Entwicklungen: IQMS konnte das elfte Jahr in Folge ein Wachstum im zweistelligen Bereich verzeichnen, mit einem organischen Umsatzwachstum von 24 Prozent im Vergleich zu 2011.

2012 konzentrierte man sich bei IQMS stark auf Reinvestitionen, um sich auf ein vielversprechendes neues Jahr vorzubereiten. Zusätzlich zur Einstellung von fast 50 neuen Mitarbeitern in beinahe jeder Abteilung (über 30 Prozent mehr Beschäftigte als im Dezember des Vorjahres) eröffnete IQMS ein zweites Gebäude mit 2700 Quadratmetern Fläche als weltweiten Firmenhauptsitz. Die zweite Anlage soll im Herbst 2013 fertig sein, verdoppelt den IQMS zur Verfügung stehenden Platz und wird in den nächsten zwei Jahren weiteren 120 neuen Angestellten eine Arbeitsstelle bieten.

IQMS konnte 2012 ein Kundenwachstum von über 20 Prozent aus beinahe jeder etablierten Fertigungsbranche verzeichnen (sowie aus einigen neuen Branchen). Während die Märkte für Medizin, Verpackungen, Autos und Elektronik stark bleiben, hat IQMS bedeutende neue Beziehungen mit der Luftfahrt- und der Gummibranche geknüpft.

„Hersteller finden die Vorteile immer attraktiver, die durch einen einzigen interaktiven Entwicklungspartner entstehen, der wie wir eine erweiterte fertigungsspezifische ERP-Softwarelösung anbieten kann“, sagte Randy Flamm, Präsident von IQMS. „Im Jahr 2012 haben wir uns deutlich auf die Festigung unserer internen Infrastruktur und entsprechende Investitionen konzentriert, damit wir uns im Verbund mit unserer modernen Softwarelösung bestmöglich für eine erfolgreiche und spannende Zukunft positionieren können.“

Außer einem Schwerpunkt auf Reinvestitionen hat IQMS auch das Engagement für seine Kunden erweitert. Im März stellte das Unternehmen mit MyIQMS ein neues gemeinschaftliches Umfeld für Softwareentwicklung, Support und Schulungsinstrumente vor. Außerdem veranstaltete IQMS im Oktober den bisher meistbesuchten User-Group-Event. Über 300 Teilnehmer waren an drei vollgepackten Tagen mit Vernetzung, Fortbildung und Zusammenarbeit dabei.

Bei dieser interaktiven Konferenz überreichte IQMS den ersten Manufacturing Success Award an seinen Kunden Plastikos, Inc. Das Projekt von Plastikos wurde von einer externen Jury mit Branchenfachleuten aus Dutzenden von progressiven Vorschlägen ausgewählt und zeigte, wie Kooperation und Innovation zu hervorragenden betrieblichen Leistungen führen können.

Plastikos war nicht der einzige Kunde von IQMS, der in diesem Rekordjahr in Bezug auf Preise ausgezeichnet wurde. Um nur einige zu nennen: Drei Kunden von IQMS wurden von Plastics News zu Preisträgern ernannt, darunter die Firma Steinwall, Inc., die den prestigeträchtigen Preis Processor of the Year entgegennahm. Drei andere Kunden von IQMS erhielten Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards, darunter die Firma Tessy Plastics Corp., die vor Konkurrenten wie IBM, Ford Motor Co. und L’Oreal USA in der Kategorie Operational Excellence den ersten Platz erreichte. IQMS selbst stieg bei seiner zweiten Platzierung in Folge in der Inc.-5000-Liste weiter auf und war einer der Lieferanten für Aribex, Inc., den Gewinner eines Medical Device Excellence Award. Schließlich gewann die Automationsabteilung von IQMS einen Preis für das Produktentwicklungsteam des Jahres für sein Gerät RTStation, das Modul Shipping Manager und weitere beeindruckende Entwicklungen im Fertigungsbereich, die im Jahr 2012 herauskamen.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades. So what has changed? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan, Solutions Architect at Red Hat, discussed the impact commodity hardware, ubiquitous connectivity, and innovations in open source software are having on the connected universe of people, thi...
WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
