Member Benefits

One large corporation, systems integrator, or vendor cannot solve industry problems alone. Our members work together, leveraging their combined technical expertise in a neutral environment to solve larger problems that transform businesses. It's in the interest of members, and our collective pursuit of best practices in IoT via collaboration throughout the IoT ecosystem, to solve these problems for the industry. IIC member activities yield results that can influence go-to-market solutions and strategies and impact the business's bottom line.

Membership entitles your organization to have a voice in developing the best practices and influencing the standards of the industrial internet. Membership enables your organization to pool resources with other experts to foster innovative new products and services and to drive the kind of transformational change that individual companies struggle to achieve on their own. The overall value of this collaborative approach to innovation is described briefly by industry analyst and strategist, Joe Barkai, here.

All IIC members receive the following benefits:

  • Opportunity to influence the requirements development, technology adoption, and future direction of the Industrial Internet by joining with leaders in technology, manufacturing, academia and government agencies in IIC Working Groups.
  • Be a voting member in Industrial Internet elections and for IIC deliverables.
  • Gain industry recognition through involvement in IIC Working Groups.
  • Network with other members and industry experts to create and develop critical collaborations.
  • Create and lead new testbeds or join in IIC-member testbeds.

  • Have your company logo displayed on IIC materials and hotlink to your website.
  • Receive special discounts on third-party Internet of Things conferences, reports and subscriptions.
