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.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office.

We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
