The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) has debuted a new pilot program called Industry Connect Service (ICS), which is designed to help organizations achieve digital transformation by connecting them with experts who can understand the business problems and develop and deploy IIoT solutions.
Technology users across all industries who are seeking solutions to large complex problems, scale existing proofs of concept or to identify requirements for industry standards now have a direct path to engage with the IIC through the ICS.
Technology users are invited to work with the IIC to guide the connection to the proper experts within the IIC membership ecosystem, to identify problems and possible solutions, opportunities for new technology development and proofs of concepts with testbeds and test drives, and to define requirements for their industry.
Users will submit their problem and requirements to the IIC membership where members have the opportunity to identify solutions to real world problems that have a direct impact on industries. The ICS enables technology users to leverage the IIC ecosystem of experts regardless of the size of the project.
“IIC is the world’s leading IIoT consortia, comprised of leaders in the development and adoption of IIoT and emerging technologies,” said Howard Kradjel, IIC vice-president, industry programs. “IIC member experts have developed best practices, guidelines and frameworks and have applied these resources across many industries. Their knowledge and insight can help technology users transform their businesses.”
