Many Industrial Internet Consortium members are participating in advanced testbeds for new digitalization approaches across many different industries. The team is eager to discover new ideas about digitalization as well as to share its expertise about IIoT, asset performance, asset lifecycle information management, diversity, leadership, change management and culture with IIC members as part of the consortium.

“Regardless of how large and capable they are, no one solution provider can do it all when it comes to the digitalization journey,” states CEO, Terrence O'Hanlon. “ and its Reliability Partners™ have created an aligned ecosystem based on Uptime Elements as the common language. This accelerates project deployment in a way no single company can achieve on its own.”

“The three big benefits of the industrial internet reported by the community include critical asset condition management, better decision making and lower costs,” continued O'Hanlon. “As our community of practice (CoP) is showing signs of rapid technology diffusion, we are ensuring we have access to the latest case studies and frameworks, especially in terms of security. The Industrial Internet Consortium is the perfect collaboration partner for our ecosystem.”

"Industrial IoT is the core technology supporting digital transformation today," said Richard Soley, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Industrial Internet Consortium. "We are pleased that has brought its expertise in digitalization to the Consortium's active testbed and architecture activities, an expertise valued by firms undergoing the difficult path to digitalization."
