Industrial IoT Consortium adapts to strengthen the ecosystem

Sept. 2, 2021

The Industry IoT Consortium (IIC), formerly the Industrial Internet Consortium, has become one of the leading forces transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial IoT.

Complementing its new name, the consortium's new mission is to bring transformative business value to organizations, 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 organizations can realize a return on their IoT investments.

"We recognized 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 organizations 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 is designed to strengthen the IIC ecosystem by unifying members around successful IoT deployment outcomes. New programs, which combine several approaches to digital transformation, will help to 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 organizations. It will also target IT, networks, manufacturing, energy and utilities, healthcare markets and academia and research. The newly branded IIC also intends to help organizations identify best technology practices, build credible brands and grow their businesses.

The Industry IoT Consortium is a program of Object Management Group (OMG).
