By Ken Briodagh March 01, 2017

The IoT M2M Council (IMC) has announced that Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has joined the council as a board member. The IMC is a trade association that counts as members 20,000 qualified buyers of network solutions in the Internet of Things (IoT). HPE will take a seat on the Board of Governors of the relatively young trade association.

“We see HPE as a global leader in IoT solutions, and we're proud to welcome them to help set a direction for our group,” said Keith Kreisher, Executive Director, IMC. “For our part, the IMC is compiling important demographic statistics extent on the use of IoT technology, in addition to providing crucial communications. We hope to learn from each other.”

The IMC is a trade group serving the IoT sector, with more than 300 new members joining each week, according to the statement. Much of the IMC membership is from the operations department, the group says. Some of the group’s more recent projects include the formation of a leadership committee of Fortune 500 IoT buyers that meets as a quarterly focus group, and a software widget that surveys potential users about their readiness for IoT deployments.

“There are major advancements being made in IoT solutions that can benefit enterprises from a wide range of markets, but this needs to be communicated, and we see the IMC as an important tool in making this happen,” said Volkhard Bregulla, VP Global Manufacturing & Distribution Industry, HPE, who will represent the company on the IMC board. “HPE has made major investments in security, industry leading innovations in edge computing, and in our Universal IoT Platform, all of which have broad applications. IMC's global footprint, covering a wide array of vertical markets, will help us interact with people that are deploying these technologies.”
