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.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
