Relazione di IQMS sull'esercizio 2012

IQMS, azienda impegnata nello sviluppo di soluzioni MES e software ERP per la produzione industriale, con un impegno costante e proattivo nei confronti dei propri prodotti e rapporti di collaborazione, ha annunciato in data odierna la pubblicazione della relazione aziendale sull'esercizio 2012. Quello appena trascorso è stato un anno di sviluppo aggressivo per IQMS sotto pressoché ogni aspetto, in cui l'azienda ha registrato per l'undicesimo anno consecutivo una crescita a due cifre con un incremento organico dei profitti del 24% rispetto al 2011.

IQMS si è concentrata nel 2012 soprattutto sul reinvestimento in preparazione di un promettente anno nuovo. Oltre ad assumere circa 50 nuovi dipendenti in quasi ogni reparto (un incremento di oltre il 30% dell'organico dal dicembre precedente), IQMS ha investito anche nella costruzione di un secondo stabile di 2.790 metri quadrati da adibirsi a sede generale dell'azienda. Il secondo edificio, il cui completamento è previsto per la primavera del 2013, raddoppia lo spazio effettivo in possesso di IQMS consentendo la collocazione di altri 120 dipendenti nel corso dei prossimi due anni.

IQMS ha inoltre registrato nel 2012 un aumento di oltre il 20% per quanto riguarda i clienti nuovi, provenienti da quasi tutti i settori produttivi costituiti come pure da qualche altro mercato emergente. Ferma restando la solidità dei mercati medico, automobilistico ed elettronico, IQMS ha stretto anche nuovi significativi rapporti nei settori aerospaziale e della gomma.

"I produttori sono sempre più attratti dai benefici che un singolo partner interattivo per lo sviluppo può offrire attraverso le nostre esaustive soluzioni software ERP specifiche per il settore della produzione manifatturiera" ha dichiarato Randy Flamm, presidente di IQMS. "Nel 2012 ci siamo dedicati in misura considerevole al consolidamento e agli investimenti per quel che concerne la nostra infrastruttura interna, in modo da poterci collocare in una posizione migliore in vista di un futuro promettente e ricco di soddisfazioni, grazie anche alle nostre avanzate soluzioni software."

In aggiunta alla grande enfasi attribuita al reinvestimento, IQMS ha inoltre ulteriormente approfondito il suo impegno verso la clientela. Lo scorso marzo la società ha lanciato MyIQMS, una nuova esperienza di collaborazione comunitaria per lo sviluppo di software, assistenza e strumenti didattici. In ottobre IQMS ha inoltre ospitato il tanto atteso evento User Group. Più di 300 partecipanti sono intervenuti a questa full-immersion di tre giorni dedicata al networking, alla formazione e alla collaborazione.

In occasione di questa conferenza interattiva, IQMS ha consegnato il suo premio inaugurale Manufacturing Success Award al cliente Plastikos, Inc. Scelto tra dozzine di candidati progressisti da una giuria esterna composta da esperti del ramo, il progetto di Plastikos ha dimostrato come la collaborazione e lo spirito innovativo possano portare all'eccellenza operativa.

Plastikos, Inc. non è stato l'unico cliente di IQMS a ricevere elogi nel corso di questo anno da record ricco di riconoscimenti. Per non menzionarne che alcuni, tre clienti di IQMS sono stati dichiarati vincitori del premio Plastics News, tra cui Steinwall, Inc. cui è stato assegnato il prestigioso riconoscimento di Processore dell'anno. Altri tre clienti di IQMS si sono aggiudicati i premi Manufacturing Leadership 100, tra cui Tessy Plastics Corp., nominato migliore realizzatore nella categoria Eccellenza operativa tra concorrenti di tutto rispetto quali IBM, Ford Motor Co. e L'Oreal USA. Quanto a IQMS, la società ha scalato le classifiche con la sua seconda inclusione consecutiva nell'elenco Inc. 5000 ed è stata scelta come fornitore di Aribex, Inc., vincitore del premio Eccellenza nello sviluppo di dispositivi medicali. La divisione Automazione di IQMS, infine, ha ottenuto il riconoscimento come Team dell'anno per lo sviluppo di nuovi prodotti per il dispositivo RTStation, il modulo Shipping Manager e altre straordinarie innovazioni implementate presso gli impianti di produzione nel 2012.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
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). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
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...
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 ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
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...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
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 ...
