iBase-t accelerates shift to cloud-native, SaaS solution provider

LAKE FOREST, Calif., June 15, 2023 — iBase-t, the company that simplifies how complex products are built and maintained, today announced the company has been positioned by Gartner as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems with its offering being evaluated, the Solumina Manufacturing Operations Platform. iBase-t’s recognition is based on the Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

According to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for MES, “MES solutions are a foundational building block of digital manufacturing. The MES market is in a state of flux as the existing vendor community pivots to newer technologies to keep pace with startups.” Gartner further states that “There is a fundamental technological shift taking place in the MES market, driven by evolving new technologies that challenge the MES status quo and driven by vendors with the agility and talent to accelerate the adoption of those technologies.”

iBase-t continues to advance its offerings with innovative technologies and deployment strategies. Its Solumina Manufacturing Operations Platform consists of an integrated suite of MES, Supplier Quality Management (SQM), and Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) solutions. As a cloud-native platform with a microservices architecture, Solumina simplifies how complex manufacturing operations are performed within a larger digital ecosystem, forming the foundation of a model-based enterprise.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Visionary by Gartner, which we believe reaffirms our dedication to accelerating our customers’ manufacturing transformation to help them meet new challenges,” said Naveen Poonian, CEO at iBase-t. “Our strategy to transition to cloud-native technology is paying off, enabling us to accelerate investments in product innovations, including MBE, IIoT, AI, AR/VR, and SaaS for the critically complex discrete manufacturing market. We are also aggressively investing in our composable, global partner delivery network to help manufacturers manage operations at scale with quicker time-to-value.”
