IQMS 2012 Jaaroverzicht

IQMS, een producent van ERP-software en ontwikkelaar van MES, met een doorlopende, proactieve toewijding aan zijn product en relaties, heeft vandaag zijn jaaroverzicht voor 2012 aangekondigd. Met een agressief ontwikkelingsjaar in bijna elk aspect van het bedrijf, kende IQMS zijn elfde opeenvolgende jaar met groei in dubbele cijfers met een autonome omzetstijging van 24 procent ten opzichte van 2011.

IQMS richtte zich in 2012 sterk op herinvestering in voorbereiding op een veelbelovend komend jaar. Naast het aannemen van bijna 50 nieuwe medewerkers, verspreid over bijna elke afdeling (een toename in werknemers van meer dan 30 procent sinds afgelopen december), legde IQMS bij zijn wereldwijde hoofdkwartier, de grondsteen voor een tweede gebouw van 2800 vierkante meter. Ontworpen om in het najaar van 2013 te worden opgeleverd, wordt de faciliteitsruimte dat IQMS nu bezit heeft, verdubbeld en maakt het plaats voor nog eens 120 nieuwe medewerkers, over de komende twee jaar.

IQMS zag een stijging in 2012 van meer dan 20 procent in nieuwe klanten uit bijna elke gevestigde verwerkende industrie (alsmede uit een aantal opkomende). Terwijl de markten voor medische, verpakkings-, automobiel- en elektronicaproducten sterk blijven, ontwikkelt IQMS belangrijke nieuwe relaties in de luchtvaart- en rubberindustrie.

“Fabrikanten zijn steeds meer aangetrokken tot de voordelen die een enkele, interactieve ontwikkelingspartner kan bieden met onze uitgebreide productie-specifieke ERP-softwareoplossing,” aldus Randy Flamm, President bij IQMS. “In 2012 hebben we ons in belangrijke mate gericht op het vastleggen van, en investering in onze infrastructuur zodat we ons samen met onze geavanceerde softwareoplossing in de beste positie plaatsen voor een succesvolle en veelbelovende toekomst.”

Behalve een nadruk op herinvestering heeft IQMS ook zijn inzet voor zijn klanten bevorderd. In maart introduceerde het bedrijf MyIQMS, een nieuwe samenwerkingsgemeenschap met hulpmiddelen voor softwareontwikkeling, -ondersteuning en -training. Daarnaast organiseerde IQMS in oktober zijn meest bijgewoonde User Group-evenement. Meer dan 300 aanwezigen namen deel aan een intensieve driedaagse bijeenkomst van netwerken, trainingen en samenwerking.

Op deze interactieve conferentie presenteerde IQMS zijn inaugurale Manufacturing Success Award aan klant Plastikos, Inc. Door een extern panel van deskundige juryleden uit de industrie geselecteerd uit tientallen progressieve nominaties, toonde het project van Plastikos hoe samenwerking en innovatie kan leiden tot operationele uitmuntendheid.

Plastikos, Inc. was niet de enige klant van IQMS die eerbetoon kreeg in dit recordjaar van onderscheidingen. Om er een paar te noemen, drie klanten van IQMS werden genoemd als winnaars van Plastics News, waaronder Steinwall, Inc. die naar huis ging met de prestigieuze Processor of the Year award. Drie andere klanten van IQMS ontvingen Manufacturing Leadership 100 awards, waaronder Tessy Plastics Corp., die werd uitgeroepen tot beste presteerder in de categorie voor Operational Excellence. Zij streefde daarbij de concurrenten IBM, Ford Motor Co. en L’Oreal USA voorbij. Wat betreft IQMS, het bedrijf klom hoger in de tweede opeenvolgende plaatsing in de Inc. 5000-lijst en werd benoemd als leverancier voor een winnaar van de Medical Device Excellence Award, Aribex, Inc. Tot slot won de Automation Department van IQMS een Product Development Team of the Year award voor zijn RTStation-toestel, Shipping Manager -module en andere indrukwekkende ontwikkelingen voor de werkplaats die in 2012 werden uitgebracht.

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.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

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 addressed this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
