State of the art products with best
of breed technology iTAC.MES.Suite, iTAC.Enterprise.Framework and cloud-based
appreciate the fact that they get integrated strategic solutions rather than
inflexible, temporary products. Innovative, state of the art products
incorporating best of breed technology guarantee a long-term investment in the
future. Manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive, electronics/EMS, medical
technology and other sectors have to ensure their sustainability in order to
remain competitive – particularly in the cyber-physical system age.
As a result of its adaptability, the iTAC product
portfolio is optimally designed for practically all production-related IT
applications and therefore supports both manufacturers and suppliers in all
sectors of the discrete manufacturing industry. The Java EE software
architecture and the Java EE-based iTAC.Enterprise.Framework with its
platform-independent iTAC.ARTES middleware make this possible.
Java EE, the internationally recognized industrial
standard, is the software architecture used for the iTAC product portfolio. It
is perfect for business-critical applications. Use of the Java EE framework
provides advantages such as platform neutrality, modern OO language, access to
enterprise services and an extremely robust runtime environment for the
operation of high availability software.
Many perspectives. iTAC.ARTES.
(Advanced Reliable Technology for Enterprise Systems) technology framework
provides the middleware layer that makes it possible to run enterprise
applications on a Java EE platform
with high availability mechanisms. This layer
provides failover and load balancing, a high efficiency communication protocol
and application server cluster monitoring features.
iTAC.ARTES’ interfaces and services facilitate the
secure transmission of complex data, the connection of function calls between
the individual system components and the transaction security, plus the
associated high availability.
It comprises three main components:
ARTES.HAS (High Availability Services)
ARTES.HAP (High Availability Protocol)
potential with iTAC products
The result is sustainable solutions with standardized,
downwardly compatible interfaces which guarantee release capability. High
performance technology for ever increasing data volumes also ensures the iTAC
products’ sustainability. However, the potential associated with best of breed
technology cannot be maximally exploited unless it is based on an individual
strategy. That’s why iTAC offers integrated strategic solutions to its
For example, the company developed the cloud-capable
iTAC.MES.Suite on the basis of the iTAC.Enterprise.Framework. Zero defect along
the entire supply chain is the priority aim in this connection, and iTAC
Software AG’s standardized Manufacturing Execution System (MES) contributes to
achieving it. It helps companies around the world to profit from significant
quality and performance improvements in their processes and products. The
combination of technology, functionality and sector know-how results in
Alongside the iTAC.MES.Suite, the
iTAC.Enterprise.Framework is the second supporting pillar in the company’s
product portfolio. With process-specific and customer-specific software
applications that can be implemented on the basis of this development platform
with the Java EE standard, customers get the flexibility and scalability that
they need to implement global IT infrastructure projects. iTAC therefore offers
its customers and partners a Java EE-based development platform for simple and
independent process and customer-specific integration of the iTAC.MES.Suite in
heterogeneous IT environments.
