Plexus Online Wins CODiE Award for Best Business Process Automation Solution from Software & Information Industry Associatio

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Plexus Systems, providers of the on demand manufacturing performance system Plexus Online, announced today that Plexus Online had been honored as the Best Business Process Automation Solution in the Software & Information Industry Association's (SIIA) 22nd Annual CODiE Awards.

The CODiE Awards recognize outstanding achievement and vision in the software and technology industries. Plexus Online was chosen from more than 1,200 nominations submitted by more than 600 companies - breaking the record set in the 2006 award program.

"The CODiE Award is one more confirmation that the software-as-a-service model brings unparalleled advantages for clients, even in applications such as manufacturing execution software (MES) and enterprise resource planning (ERP), which until a short while ago were widely considered impossible to deliver via the SaaS model," notes Mark Symonds, CEO of Plexus Systems, Inc.

"With the award for Best Business Process Automation Solution, Plexus Online is recognized for breaking through some of the assumed limitations of SaaS, and for delivery a full featured technology solution that automates processes, and improves all aspects of production and manufacturing operations.

Through a unique combination of journalist and peer review, the CODiE Awards recognize outstanding products and services. The most recent recipients of the Best Business Process Automation award were Adobe in 2005 and IBM in 2006.

"I applaud all the companies selected as winners or finalists in the 22nd annual CODiE Awards," said Ken Wasch, SIIA President. "The software and information industry continues to move at a dizzying pace, and being recognized by your peers for getting to and staying at the head of the pack in such a dynamic environment is a major accomplishment. It is one of the reasons why the CODiE Awards hold such a special place in our industry."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
