STATE OF THE INDUSTRY
Globally, cities are increasingly relying on data-driven decision making and innovative technical solutions to create efficiencies and elevate quality of life. Public-private partnerships present an increasingly emerging vehicle through which solutions are brought to market in cities. The Internet of Thing Consortium Smart Cities program seeks to convene our diverse membership to engage in ideation and execution of pilot programs and business opportunities in cities of varying sizes. Our partnership with a growing network of city Mayors, Chief Technology Officers, and Chief Innovation officers make these efforts possible.
Automobile manufacturers, fleet operators, telecommunications providers, data companies, and more are eager to be engaged in the marketplace for cars and trucks with internet-supported functionality. Communication between vehicles, infrastructure, networks, and countless other platforms provide limitless potential for creation of efficiencies and wholesale mobility transformation. The Internet of Things Consortium is at the forefront of this dialogue from all key angles.
Technology that provides internet and data-powered enhancements to homes, hotels, and other indoor infrastructure represents one of the most increasingly adopted fields of consumer Internet of Things technology. Connected home technology seeks to enhance comfort, security, energy efficiency, overall convenience, entertainment, and more. The Internet of Things Consortium is a best-in-class convener of executives and influencers from firms at the cutting edge of connected home technology.
Globally, consumers are increasingly making use of wearable technology that enhances their ability to fulfill their professional duties, provides entertainment value, or provides healthcare benefits. The Internet of Things Consortium is devoted to digging deep and facilitating actionable business development opportunities in this space that scale beyond the most widely known consumer products.
One of the most widely discussed trends in our global economy is the evolving state of the retail business. With increasing amounts of commerce shifting to online and mobile sales and purchasing, retailers must adapt their strategies both with respect to physical and digital conceptions and payment platforms. As with all areas of IoTC focus, the connected retail vertical requires industry players to deliver business solutions that facilitate simple transactions and desirable, efficient experiences.
