IIC Opens New IIoT Community Forum

By

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), a professional organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), recently launched an online community forum as a place for industry experts to exchange ideas, to discuss IIoT problems in need of solutions and to network. The IIC said it hopes its Community Forum will be the go-to IIoT discussion forum to provide helpful, relevant content to technology users, vendors, integrators, technology experts, researchers, government entities and academicians.

The IIC will be appearing at the IoT Evolution Expo 2020, Feb 11 to 14, in Ft Lauderdale Florida, where IIC Steering Committee Secretary Wael Diab will be keynoting.

Collaborating under the IIC Digital Transformation Working Group, members of the Ecosystem Task Group identified the need and objectives of a community forum and worked to evaluate options and launch the IIC Community Forum.

“Our goal in launching this forum is to provide thought-provoking discussions that benefit all stakeholders in IIoT,” said Patrice Belmonte, IIC Ecosystem TG co-chair and Product Marketing Manager, Connected Manufacturing, at Irdeto. “The Forum also offers IIC members a new vehicle for gathering feedback on our published resources and soliciting ideas on where their expertise should be applied in developing additional guidance.”

“Anyone can post a question or start a discussion about Digital Transformation and IoT-related topics, and engage with IIC experts to solicit help with issues, offer perspectives on challenges and opportunities, or simply network with peers,” added Bassam Zarkout, IIC Digital Transformation WG co-chair and Executive Vice President at IGnPower.

The community is organized by categories, each with multiple discussions.  The categories are Technology, Security, Business, and Industries as well as a category for general topics.  Currently, the most popular tags are trustworthiness, digital transformation and artificial intelligence.

Now open to the public, users are encouraged to join, view discussions by topics or tags, participate in current threads and initiate new discussions. The IIC Community Forum can be found at https://community.iiconsortium.org.
