Leading Market Research and Consulting Company rates iTAC Software AG once again as I4.0 innovation driver

Montabaur, 22 September 2017 – The MES software provider iTAC Software AG has received the title “Leader for Industry 4.0 Platforms” for the second time. In the ISG Provider Lens Germany 2018 – Internet of Things (I4.0) Platforms, Services & Solutions study relevant suppliers on the German market were examined and ranked following the ISG Provider Lens Research process. iTAC was also able to convince the panel in a second category of Industrial Analytics and Visualization as Product Challenger.

The classic core task of MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) is to control production processes. The development of new products around this core task is ongoing. A new generation of intelligent solutions for networking and automating production processes is being born. The market research and consulting company Information Services Group Germany GmbH (ISG) describes these solutions as Industry 4.0 platforms. The unique selling proposition of the iTAC I4.0 solution portfolio are the three different models available: first, complete from Public Cloud via IoT platforms, second, complete On Premises solutions and third, as an Edge Device solution. 

Leader: Industry 4.0 Platforms
ISG identified ten companies as relevant providers for industry 4.0 within the German market. Five of these providers were positioned in the leader quadrant. iTAC is once again at eye level with Bosch SI and Beckhoff.

The providers ranked as leaders have a highly attractive range of products and services as well as a strong market position and a competitive edge. They fulfill all requirements to serve the market successfully. These providers are strategically dictating the pace and setting the trends and are a guarantee for strong innovation stability.  

iTAC convinced the analysts with the following advantages: The iTAC.MES.Suite dockerized with its service-orientated architecture and container-based structure is available on leading IoT platforms such as Microsoft Azure, AWS, IBM Bluemix etc. This means that the MES services of iTAC.MES.Suite dockerized can be used with the other high performance services of these horizontal IoT platforms. iTAC is a company with great technological expertise. It has proved that a secure and scalable I4.0 platform from the Cloud with Near-Realtime Capability is possible. Container technology such as Docker is used for MES services. Years of experience in MES have led to services that make quality analyses, complete traceability, automatic material supply control as well as simultaneous multi-resource planning possible – as a Public Cloud, On Premises or Edge Device solution. 

Furthermore, ISG certified iTAC as having an above-average potential for development in strategy and vision, architecture and service design and client experience. Last year iTAC received the title “Leader Industry 4.0 Platforms” and was able to further improve its position in the quadrant this year.

Product Challenger: Industrial Analytics & Visualization
Additionally, iTAC was awarded the title Product Challenger in the Industrial Analytics and Visualization category. ISG identified 20 companies as relevant providers in this area.
