Faits marquants de 2012 chez IQMS

IQMS, développeur de MES et de logiciels PGI pour le secteur manufacturier, dont l'engagement proactif envers ses produits et ses partenaires reste constant, a annoncé aujourd'hui les faits marquants de son exercice 2012. Une année de développement dynamique dans presque toutes les activités de la société a permis à IQMS d'enregistrer sa onzième année consécutive de croissance à deux chiffres avec une croissance organique du chiffre d'affaires de 24 % par rapport à 2011.

IQMS s'est fortement axé sur le réinvestissement en 2012 en préparation d’un prochain exercice prometteur. En plus d'embaucher près de 50 nouveaux employés dans presque chaque département (une augmentation d'effectif de plus de 30 % depuis le mois de décembre), IQMS a entamé la construction d'une deuxième installation de près de 2 800 mètres carrés (30 000 pieds carrés) à proximité de son siège social mondial. Cette deuxième installation, dont l'inauguration est prévue pour l'automne de 2013, va en fait doubler l'espace dont dispose maintenant IQMS et permettre d'accueillir 120 nouveaux employés au cours des deux prochaines années.

En termes d'augmentation de clientèle, IQMS a enregistré en 2012 plus de 20 % de nouveaux clients provenant de presque tous les secteurs manufacturiers établis, mais aussi de certains secteurs émergents. Les secteurs médecine, emballage, automobile et électronique sont restés très actifs tandis qu'IQMS a développé de nouvelles relations importantes dans les secteurs de l'aérospatiale et du caoutchouc.

« Les fabricants sont de plus en plus attirés par les avantages que peut offrir un partenaire unique de développement interactif grâce à notre solution logicielle PGI optimisée et spécifique pour le secteur manufacturier », a déclaré Randy Flamm, président d'IQMS. « En 2012, nous nous sommes fortement concentrés sur la consolidation et l’investissement dans notre infrastructure interne afin de tirer parti de notre solution logicielle de pointe et de nous positionner au mieux pour un avenir prospère et passionnant ».

En plus de mettre l'accent sur le réinvestissement, IQMS a également renforcé son engagement envers ses clients. En mars, la société a lancé MyIQMS, une nouvelle expérience communautaire de collaboration offrant des outils de développement de logiciels, de soutien et de formation. En outre, en octobre IQMS a organisé son événement User Group (Groupe d’utilisateurs) le plus réussi à ce jour. Plus de 300 inscrits ont participé à trois intenses journées de réseautage, de formation et de collaboration.

Lors de cette conférence interactive, IQMS a présenté son premier Manufacturing Success Award (Prix de fabrication réussie) à son client Plastikos, Inc.. Sélectionné parmi des dizaines de candidats progressistes par un comité externe de juges experts dans leur secteur, le projet de Plastikos a démontré comment la collaboration et l'innovation peuvent conduire à l'excellence opérationnelle.

Plastikos, Inc. n'a pas été le seul client d'IQMS à recevoir des félicitations au cours de cette année riche en récompenses. Pour n'en citer que quelques-uns, trois clients d'IQMS ont été nommés lauréats Plastics News (Nouveautés dans le secteur du plastique), dont notamment Steinwall, Inc. qui a remporté le prestigieux prix Processor of the Year (Transformateur de l’année). Trois autres clients d'IQMS ont reçu des prix Manufacturing Leadership 100 (Leadership dans le secteur manufacturier), dont notamment Tessy Plastics Corp., qui a été nommé meilleur candidat dans la catégorie Operational Excellence (Excellence opérationnelle) devant ses concurrents IBM, Ford Motor Co. et L'Oréal USA. Quant à IQMS, la société a, pour la deuxième fois consécutive, amélioré son classement dans le Palmarès Inc. 5000 en décrochant le titre de fournisseur d'Aribex, Inc. lauréat d'un Medical Device Excellence Award (Prix de l’excellence pour les dispositifs médicaux). Enfin, le département Automatisation d'IQMS a remporté le prix de Product Development Team of the Year (Équipe de développement de produits de l’année) pour son dispositif RTStation, son module Shipping Manager et d'autres solutions de gestion d'atelier lancées en 2012.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Connected devices and the industrial internet are growing exponentially every year with Cisco expecting 50 billion devices to be in operation by 2020. In this period of growth, location-based insights are becoming invaluable to many businesses as they adopt new connected technologies.

In his session at @Th...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

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...
