Industrial Internet Consortium Opens Community Forum

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an organization focused on accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has launched a community forum for industry experts to exchange ideas, discuss IIoT problems and network with each other. According to the organization, the IIC Community Forum will provide helpful, relevant content to technology users, vendors, systems integrators, technology experts, researchers, government entities and academicians.

Collaborating under the IIC Digital Transformation Working Group, members of the Ecosystem Task Group evaluated options and then launched the IIC Community Forum. The forum is now open to the public, and users are encouraged to join, view discussions by topics or tags, participate in current threads and initiate new discussions.

"Our goal in launching this forum is to provide thought-provoking discussions that benefit all stakeholders in IIoT," said Patrice Belmonte, Irdeto's IIC ecosystem co-chair and product marketing manager for connected manufacturing, in a prepared statement. "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," said Bassam Zarkout, IGnPower's IIC digital transformation co-chair and executive VP, in the prepared statement. "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.
