The partnership, say the organizations, through a series of collaborative activities is designed to help accelerate the digital transformation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and to speed the development of IoT for broader adoption across enterprise and industrial sectors. Together, they say, they hope to create a common industry language and framework in the areas of Industrial IoT and Manufacturing; Smart Cities; Precision Agriculture; Healthcare; Security and Privacy; Computing and Information Processing; Communications and Connectivity, and many more.
"Harnessing the power of the Internet of Things is essential for the successful development of digital transformation across enterprise and industrial sectors," says 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.”
To achieve this goal, the IoT Community and the IEEE IoT Initiative will share commercial, technical, and standardization insights and explore opportunities for collaboration on technologies, exchange information and expertise, and develop solutions to accelerate the development of the IoT. The result, say the organizations, will be generating a compelling and complete IoT thought leadership, offering enterprises and industry, real-world use cases, and proven best practices.
