The consortium’s mission is to coordinate vast ecosystem initiatives to connect and integrate objects with people, processes and data using common architectures, interoperability and open standards.
“We’re excited to work with IoT technology leaders, academia, government agencies and various working groups within the IIC to guide the direction of the IoT. As IIC members, we will build and enhance testbeds, provide support and thought leadership, give technical guidance to the consortium,” said Sandeep Agarwal, Senior VP and Head of Engineering R&D services, Happiest Minds.
