PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that it has joined the Industrial Internet Consortium as its first (non-founder) industry member.
Quoting from today’s IIC launch press release, “AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel today announce the formation of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an open membership group focused on breaking down the barriers of technology silos to support better access to big data with improved integration of the physical and digital worlds. The consortium will enable organizations to more easily connect and optimize assets, operations and data to drive agility and to unlock business value across all industrial sectors.”
The IIC will establish and influence common architectures, interoperability, and open standards that integrate devices and machines to people, processes and data. The Object Management Group (OMG), a non-profit trade association in Boston, MA will manage the consortium.
