Industrial Internet Consortium Publishes Smart Cities Edition of Journal of Innovation

 

NEEDHAM, MA – July 19, 2017 – The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has published the fourth edition of the Journal of Innovation with a focus on Smart Cities.

The Journal of Innovation highlights the innovative ideas, approaches, products, and services emerging within the Industrial Internet. The IIoT is one of the main technology drivers behind smart cities. While IIoT applications bring many benefits to smart cities, the integration of different technologies, processes, business, social, and regulation realms presents complicated security, privacy and interoperability challenges.

“We chose Smart Cities as the theme of this edition of the Journal of Innovation because many municipalities around the world are looking at ways to improve their infrastructure and services and our member organizations are on the leading edge of innovating in the Industrial Internet of Things,” said Edy Liongosari, co-chair of the IIC Thought Leadership Task Group and Chief Research Scientist at Accenture.

The Smart Cities edition of the Journal of Innovation includes the following articles contributed by leaders at IIC member companies: Bosch, Deloitte, Fujitsu, Huawei, InterDigital, NEC, SAP SE, and TCS.
