Build for change - create dynamic IT infrastructure
David Sonnerbäck at iCore has many years of experience in both IT systems and industrial operations. Today, the need for increased flexibility within all of the industry's operational areas is palpable, and the industry is undergoing an unprecedented change.
– Build for change. It is my recommendation to anyone in the industry. In the same way that production processes change thanks to technological development and innovations, there is a constant change and development of the IT-related processes. That is why it is so important to start from the whole when the IT infrastructure is to be dynamic. That is exactly what we at iCore help with.
Just-in-time is "in the past"
– For decades, just-in-time has been the ruling paradigm. Consumables would not sit on shelves and wait, but ideally arrive just before they were to be used. It turned out to be a pretty shaky strategy. Unexpected stops in the supply chain resulted in no production and thus no goods for customers.
In order to ensure that production continues, the entrepreneurs have therefore returned to different storage solutions. Some build their own warehouses, others bring in third-party solutions. In addition, the supply chain itself has changed in character with many more smaller niche players. The restructuring also means that the industry's IT systems need to become more flexible in their structure.

Companies want to cherry-pick the best solutions
– Roughly speaking, companies today do not want or can build their IT solutions based on a monolithic platform that is expected to have everything, but need to have functionality found in more specially adapted applications, so-called best-of-breed. In parallel, they require the ability to replace or add functionality in a simple way. The hub of such an IT solution therefore becomes an integration platform.
Integrating applications and systems is nothing new, but the difference between how it used to be and what is possible today with an integration platform like iCore offers is huge.
Tips from David
– Integrations between different systems have historically required many consulting hours. With iCore, all applications, functionality and entire systems are "surgically" integrated into one platform. It therefore becomes less risky and the integration work is carried out at a significantly lower cost. It is simply better in every way and suits industrial operations perfectly.
Integration for industrial companies
At iCore, we have extensive experience in helping industrial companies use data from the production process, supply chain and customers to integrate their systems and automate their business processes.
