Customer and Technical Validation for IIoT Solutions

Special Interest Groups

Major technology developments are emerging in every industry sector. The IIC - comprised of experts developing and delivering innovative solutions across all sectors - is establishing Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to meet the following goals:

  1. Create customer-validated requirements for the development of holistic solutions for industry
  2. Initiate technical validation projects for these requirements
  3. Initiate new industry standards to help harmonize the technology landscape
  4. Provide an efficient platform for vendors, suppliers and industry organizations to jointly shape the future of Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions

Benefits of Participating

The IIC is very experienced in leading groups with similar goals, seeking innovative solutions to challenges and opportunities driven by the emergence of the industrial internet. Participation in the IIC SIGs allows members to:

  • Set the vision for the industry
  • Access experts at the implementation and testbed levels of IIoT adoption
  • Gain knowledge and frame strategic solutions by sharing similar challenges with peers
  • Leverage IIC resources to explore innovative solutions to emerging problems.

Potential Outcomes Of SIG's

The potential to produce tangible outcomes through IIC SIGs is great. We have initial ideas we plan to refine and we welcome new ideas as SIG members offer their opinions and expertise. Some of our initial ideas, also reflected in our goals, include:

  • Jointly shape the future of IIoT solutions
  • Define customer-validated requirements
  • Define, propose and drive related Testbeds and Test Drives
  • Influence the enhancement of, and propose new industry standards
  • Publish industry best practices
