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.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
"For over 25 years we have been working with a lot of enterprise customers and we have seen how companies create applications. And now that we have moved to cloud computing, mobile, social and the Internet of Things, we see that the market needs a new way of creating applications," stated Jesse Shiah, CEO, President and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 15th Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
