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.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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...
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 ...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA).

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
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 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...
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...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
