TQ and nxtControl: a New Partnership Focusing on Customer-Specific Control Solutions

Two high-tech companies are combining their knowledge and expertise. The embedded specialist and electronics service provider TQ systems and nxtControl GmbH (http://www.nxtcontrol.com), a pioneer in the field of automation software in line with the IEC 61499 standard, are now working together to develop complete solutions for their customers.

Perfectly-aligned hardware and software components provide customized, optimal solutions to meet customers' requirements. In the future, the two companies will be reinforcing their positions as solution providers and it was therefore self-evident that they should both look for a partner that would enable them to do justice to these customer requirements. The recognition that they had more to offer the market as a team than each working individually led them to a collaboration that has now been signed and sealed.

Within the collaboration, TQ-Systems will be responsible for the development and production of application and project-specific hardware products for industrial automation and control tasks. On the other hand, nxtControl will bring extensive knowledge and expertise in the field of control software (IEC61499, IEC61131) and the development of universal engineering tools. In future, customers will receive complete solutions made up of efficient hardware that meets the highest standards in terms of quality, coupled with integrated software ranging from the field level to the SCADA level.

Thanks to the collaboration, TQ-Systems and nxtControl will be standing side-by-side with their customers. When two companies with a great deal of knowledge and expertise, driven by the spirit of innovation, work together, this creates long-term synergies. The well-known synergy formula 1 + 1 = 3 will become real for customers of the two companies. This collaboration really is more than the sum of its parts.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
