Incognito Software Systems, a Canada-based provider of broadband service orchestration and IoT management, has joined the IoT M2M Council (IMC).

The IMC is a trade association with 25,000 members. Incognito has joined to build awareness among potential customers and partners, as well as contribute and collaborate on the IoT ecosystem.

Incognito’s IoT device and service management platform has strengths in centralising the lifecycle management of multi-vendor devices leveraging multiple protocols, real-time big data collection and analytics, and end-to-end integration, providing a fit for the enterprise users and product makers that comprise the IMC’s rank-and-file adopter membership.

“We believe that Incognito can help solve the challenges of managing these complex digital ecosystems and improve interoperability to deliver complete end-to-end IoT device and service management,” said Pete Koat, Incognito’s COO, who will represent the company on the IMC’s board of governors. “By joining the IMC, Incognito has the opportunity to collaborate with other leaders in the IoT space and extend our reach into new markets with our IoT solution and IMC’s ecosystem.”

Sustaining, board-level membership in the IMC has exploded recently, increasing by over 50% since the start of the year to well over 30 companies that provide IoT products and services, including new additions of Microsoft, Arm and Quectel, among others. A main driver of the growth has been the success of the group’s online events, which routinely attract high-quality audiences, over 70% of whom identify as buyers of IoT technology.

The IMC also provides its membership with template RFP documents and guidelines for IoT procurement, software-widget surveying tools, an extensive online library of use-cases, and regular, push-content news channels.

“We welcome Incognito to the IMC board of governors and our growing list of IoT platform providers,” said IMC chairman Kim Bybjerg, vice president at Tata Communications. “I think that both the IMC’s adopter members and our sustainer companies will take a strong interest in the company’s technology as potential user and partners, respectively.”

The IMC is the largest trade group dedicated to the global IoT and M2M sector with more than 25,000 IoT enterprise users, product makers and designers, and apps developers that buy IoT products and services as members.

Board companies include Aeris, AVSystem, BeamLive, BICS, Blues Wireless, Digi International, FloLive, Gurtam, iBasis, Ignion, Incognito Software Systems, IoT Launch, Keyfactor, KORE, Losant, Microsoft Azure IoT, MultiTech, NimbeLink, Novotech, Pelion division of Arm, Pod Group, Quectel, Software AG, Somos, Taoglas, Tata Communications, Telit, Utimaco and Vodafone.
