IoT News is a practical resource providing news, analysis and opinion on the burgeoning Internet of Things ecosystem, from standardisation, to business use cases, and development opportunities. We take the best research and put our own spin on it, report from the frontline of the industry, as well as feature contributions from companies at the heart of this revolution.

Market researcher J.D. Power and Avis Budget Group have joined the Internet of Things Consortium, or IoTC, a business development organisation focused on connecting thought-leaders and companies to drive IoT interactions and partnerships.

By joining the IoTC, J.D. Power will be among more than 70 well-known organisations such as ADT, Comcast, Cox Communications, Electrolux, FOX, Honeywell, LG Electronics USA, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Mastercard, Nestle, T-Mobile, Turner, The Weather Company, etc. Whereas Avis has been leveraging IoT technology to offer its customers the most flexible and convenient on-demand mobility options.

Massachusetts-based Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) has introduced its V2.1 of the Industrial Internet Vocabulary Technical Report, aiming to boost the adoption of the IIoT. This new version of the report reduces the confusion in the marketplace by providing a common set of definitions for IIoT terms used in all IIC documents. It adds definitions for terms used in data management, edge and edge computing, IT/OT convergence, connectivity, interoperability, brownfield and Greenfield.

Anish Karmarkar, co-chair of the Vocabulary Task Group, and senior director, Standards Strategy & Architecture at Oracle, said: “People from different backgrounds and different vertical industries will often use different terms to mean the same thing. Additionally, the industrial internet has core concepts that mean different things to different people. Without an agreed upon vocabulary, there’s a lot of room for misunderstandings.

“For example, we’ve defined IT/OT convergence as a process of interweaving IT and OT in order to create IIoT systems. While IT/OT convergence is a hot topic today, not everyone is on the same page as to what it exactly means.”
