Industrial Internet Consortium Opens IIC Community Forum

February 3, 2020 Perry Cohen

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) launched the IIC Community forum, a place for industry experts to exchange ideas, discuss IIoT problems, and to network. The IIC Community Forum will provide helpful, relevant content to technology users, vendors, integrators, technology experts, researchers, government entities, and academics.

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 tirelessly 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,” IIC Ecosystem TG co-chair, Patrice Belmonte, said in a press release. “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.”

The community is sectioned into categories, each with multiple discussions.  The categories are Technology, Security, Business, Industries, and general topics.
