Machina Research, the world’s leading provider of strategic market intelligence on the Internet of Things joins the IIC, the industry association aimed at accelerating the growth of the Industrial Internet.
Machina Research today announced its membership of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an organization of over 130 members focused collectively on encouraging the growth of the Industrial Internet by sharing best practice, encouraging interoperability, helping build standards, and tackling challenges such as security. Founded in 2014, the not-for-profit IIC comprises major technology companies, industrial end-users, government bodies and academics.
“We are delighted to be joining the IIC, in order to contribute to building a successful Industrial Internet,” said Jim Morrish Co-Founder and Chief Research Officer of Machina Research.
“As the leading analyst firm in this space we feel it is incumbent on us to be involved in initiatives such as this. We see the IIC as a fantastic organization with laudable goals and ambitions and we look forward to working closely with the other members in the coming years to drive the development of the IoT. I have often expressed my view that the enterprise IoT environment will be the crucible for the de-facto standards and protocols that will in time be adopted by the wider IoT, and this is where the rubber hits the road.”
“Machina Research has been collaborating with the IIC for many months,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium.
“Last December, for example, the two organizations cohosted a webinar on operationalizing the Industrial Internet. We are pleased that Machina Research will be working even more closely with us now as a member.”
