The mission of IOT Journal is to be the ultimate resource for businesspeople and technologists looking to understand how Internet of Things technologies can help their companies to become more efficient, flexible and responsive, and to create smart products for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets. The new website aims to be the place to turn to understand how IoT technologies are being utilized, and how you can take advantage of them as well. The site's content includes in-depth feature stories, case studies, news articles and expert views. Readers can also sign up to receive IOT Journal's free monthly e-newsletter, which will launch later this month.

Mary Catherine O'Connor, a well-respected technology and environmental journalist who previously reported on RFID technologies as a senior editor of RFID Journal, has been appointed as IOT Journal's editor. "Our goal is simple: help companies use Internet of Things technologies to improve their products or their operations," she says. "We'll do that with objective reporting that focuses on successful uses of IoT technologies."

There are many different definitions of the term "Internet of Things," but IOT Journal will lean toward covering wireless technologies that link products, assets, tools, vehicles and other physical objects to the Internet. It will cover the hardware, software, infrastructure and standards required to make the IoT a reality.

"RFID Journal has gained a reputation for high-quality editorial content that brings clarity and objectivity to the complex issues surrounding the adoption of radio frequency identification technology," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's CEO. "We plan to do the same thing for Internet of Things technologies."
