The IoT Community and IEEE are partnering to accelerate digital transformation of IIoT and speed the development of IoT in general. 

“Harnessing the power of the Internet of Things is essential for the successful development of digital transformation across enterprise and industrial sectors,” said Heinrich Stüttgen, Chair of the IEEE IoT Initiative. “IEEE looks forward to working with the IoT Community to enhance the development of the Internet of Things and accelerate the progress of digital transformation.”

The two organizations will work to curate and generate IoT thought leadership. They will also try to create a common industry language and framework in IIoT and manufacturing, precision agriculture, healthcare, security and privacy, computing and information processing, and communications and connectivity. 

They will share commercial, technical, and standardization insights with each other. In addition, they will seek out opportunities for further collaboration, exchange information, and develop solutions for accelerating IoT. 

“This collaboration will help the two organizations contribute toward a common goal of accelerating the uptake of the IIoT,” said David Hill, executive director of the IoT community. “As new advances like 5G, the edge, and AI are unleashed to enable the IIoT, opportunities and challenges are top of mind with our members, IoT practitioners, and end-users. Ensuring a smooth and secure implementation of these mass evolving technologies is critical. Capitalizing on the capabilities to educate, influence standards, and highlight successful use cases are just a few of the areas both organizations can collaborate with their unique thought leadership is of tremendous value to the overall industry.”

IEEE will also host its second annual IoT Day Slam as part of IEEE’s World Forum on IoT. The event, taking place April 5-9 in New Orleans, will bring together experts from the industry and include technical papers, tutorials, workshops, and industry sessions.
