Experton Group names Benchmark Leader: iTAC.IoT.Platform receives award
Industry 4.0 platform uniting MES, APS, Smart Data Analytics (SDA) & Co.
Software AG has won the Experton Group’s Industry 4.0/IoT-Vendor Benchmark 2017
Award. Dieter Meuser, CTO of iTAC, accepted the
award for the iTAC.IoT.Platform at a gala evening in Schlosshotel Kronberg on
February 8. The Industry 4.0 platform delivers smart
solutions for production process connectivity, automation and analysis.
The Experton Group performs an independent
benchmarking to evaluate and rate the leading IoT vendors in the German market. iTAC Software AG was selected as ‘Industry 4.0/IoT Leader Germany’ in
the category of ‘Industry 4.0 Platforms’. The
fact that iTAC has been a public cloud MES pioneer and smart factory solution
leader since 2011 played an important role in the selection decision.
The award-winning iTAC.IoT.Platform is a vertical
public cloud IoT platform for small and medium-sized enterprises. It is based on infrastructure components (IaaS) from leading horizontal
IoT platforms such as MS Azure, IBM Bluemix, AWS etc. The middleware components
for the iTAC.IoT.Platform are based on the Java EE iTAC.AppServer and the
Container Framework Docker (PaaS). The software
applications (SaaS) offered on the iTAC.IoT.Platform for SMEs are encapsulated
into a docker container and derived from the iTAC-MES (Manufacturing Execution
System) and APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) by iTAC‘s subsidiary DUALIS.
Dieter Meuser, CTO of iTAC Software AG commented, “We’re
delighted to have been named Industry 4.0/IoT Leader
Germany. That puts us on a par with Bosch SI and
underlines how our platform is technically equal to the big players‘
