HPE, PTC, and Wind River Join Effort to Speed IoT Software Purchasing
Las Vegas, CES - January 8, 2018 - Three of the biggest software vendors in IoT - HPE, PTC, and Wind River (Intel) - have agreed to join the IoT M2M Council's (IMC) fledgling template RFP Program for IoT Software Platforms, which will be presented at the IMC's conference at CES. Using input from many vendors and more than 100 software buyers in an open-source process, the IMC developed a template reference document that will ease buying of IoT software, and later, hardware and connectivity solutions. HPE, PTC, and Wind River have agreed to have their platforms assessed by the IoT M2M Council which represents 25,000 enterprise users and OEMs that buy IoT solutions.

The IMC offers a collection of in-depth case studies for IoT and M2M deployments, spanning the broadset possible range of verticle market applications and geographies. The Use Cases will include critical information concerning ROI, Total Cost of Ownership, enhanced revenue streams, and other tangible outcomes of deployments wherever possible, organized by vertical market categories. It is the considered opinion of the IMC Board that broader adoption of M2M technologies will be fostered by this kind of qualitative research, providing IoT and M2M Adopters with valuable lessons learned from real-life examples.

 

 The IMC is a trade organization for the machine-to-machine communications industry, and it brings a new approach - it will stant for M2M as its own global  industry - it will not see M2M through the narrow lens of a single product category, nor will it see M2M solely as applied to a single vertical industry. The IMC will strive to bring together M2M Solutions Providers and Adopters of M2M technology into a single membership organization.
