Blockchain use cases continue to proliferate in the world of IoT. This adoption is providing a type of security standard that companies have been looking for quite some time now. This new partnership between IIC and TIoTA will provide enterprises with a framework for all sources of trusted IoT. The overarching objective of the collaboration will be to establish principles primarily for security and privacy, with IoT portability a secondary goal. The article that follows describes in detail the thinking behind the merger, and how these groups plan to help enterprises achieve digital transformation.
There’s good news for organizations hesitant to take the digital transformation leap in IoT because of security. The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Trusted IoT Alliance (TIoTA) are combining memberships, hoping to bring greater trustability to the world of IoT.
For many companies, full digital transformation is difficult enough; adopting blockchain technologies is not even a thought. As these technologies become more feasible, it’s not a question of “if” but “when” the digital transformation with blockchain will happen.
These industry goals are the driving force behind IIC and TIoTA combining forces. According to their release, the primary goal is to foster collaboration within the space, promoting open systems, better research, and best practices for trusted IoT systems.
The organizations are in a position to drive real change due to the expertise each group brings to the table.
