QueplixCorp. adds QTI International, a system integration firm in South Korea, as a new partner in the Queplix Advantage Partner Program.
QTI, which works with industry manufacturing companies such as Samsung, Hitachi and Toyota, will implement Queplix's advanced data virtualization technology to integrate extensive product and materials information for supply chain management.
The partnership with QTI extends Queplix's presence into Asia and advances delivery of its technology globally.
"In response to customer demand, we've been working to integrate large database systems that span multiple manufacturing plants around the world, but found it to be a very challenging endeavor," said Gyuseop Oh, Ph.D., CEO, QTI International. "When we saw the capabilities of Queplix's data virtualization platform, we knew immediately it would be the right solution for the hard integration problems we're trying solve. We look forward to partnering with Queplix and eliminating these problems for our customers so they can focus on the strategic aspects of operating their business, not on the difficulties of getting their systems to work together."
The architecture of the Queplix Virtual Data Manager, the company's flagship product which drives the application and data integration process, includes a series of intelligent Application Software Blades that identify and extract key data and associated security information from many different target applications such as Oracle SCM, Google, and others. The blades identify and extract key metadata and associated security information from the data stored within these applications, then bring it into the Queplix Engine to support data integration with other applications.
"The fact that QTI International, a technology solutions provider for some of the world's largest manufacturing companies, chose to partner with Queplix in answer to its customers' data integration and management requirements, is a true testament to the value of our data virtualization platform," said Mark Cashman, CEO, Queplix. "QTI is recognized for its superior technology expertise and implementation skills and we welcome them to our Advantage Partner Program."

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
