Industrial Internet Consortium Pivots to Reflect Maturity of IoT Marketplace
The Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC®) has a new direction and a new name – Industry IoT Consortium® (IIC®). IIC has become the world’s leading organisation transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial IoT. The consortium’s new mission is to bring transformative business value to organisations, industry, and society by accelerating the adoption of trustworthy IoT systems. IIC’s new focus will drive technology innovation that fosters business transformation so that organisations can realise a return on their IoT investments.
“We recognised the need to focus on technology deployments to solve technical problems,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industry IoT Consortium. “We’re applying technology to address customer pain points and improve business results. Industry organisations and technology providers turn to IIC and its members for IoT support and guidance. Now we’ll guide them on the application of IoT technology and digital transformation enablers to achieve positive business outcomes.”
The new direction will strengthen the IIC ecosystem by unifying members around successful IoT deployment outcomes. New programs, which combine several approaches to digital transformation, will identify customer pain points, improve go-to-market abilities, and enhance business outcomes. Existing programs will change to reflect this focus, and new initiatives will emerge to help members reach more of their customers.
IIC will continue its work on best-practice frameworks, innovative testbeds, and providing standards requirements to standards development organisations. It will also target IT, networks, manufacturing, energy & utilities, healthcare markets, and academia & research.
The newly branded IIC will help organisations identify best technology practices, build credible brands, and grow their businesses.
