London (5 May 2021): A provider of turnkey solutions for device connectivity and management – Pelion, a subsidiary of Arm – has joined the IoT M2M Council (IMC), the largest community of users of that deploy IoT technology. Pelion is looking to share its considerable experience in IoT device and connectivity management with IMC’s Adopter Membership, comprised of 25,000 enterprise users and product makers that deploy embedded devices in the field. A plurality of IMC’s Adopters identify as “operations” – not IT or R&D – and cite business results as their highest priority in IoT implementation.

“Pelion streamlines and simplifies connectivity, management and security of IoT devices delivering scalable, meaningful insights for companies to achieve their digital transformation ,” says David Weidner, the company’s Chief Market Development Officer who will represent the company on the IMC Board of Governors, “Much of the IMC’s membership comes from an operational background and our participation means that we are able to help people realize their organizations’ digital transformation goals.”

Roughly 35% of IMC’s Adopters are based in North America, with about 25% each from Asia and Europe, and they operate in 27 different vertical markets, from automotive manufacturing to healthcare services to retail point-of-sale. The trade group curates an online content library, offers template procurement documents, and has become an IoT industry leader in producing online events. The IMC is also the exclusive IoT Infrastructure Partner for the Consumer Electronics Show, where it organizes a pavilion and conference, and is building a similar relationship with Hannover Messe, the world’s largest manufacturing event.

“The IMC is an IoT industry accelerator, and we look to our Board companies like Pelion to help us set direction for the industry,” says Kim Bybjerg, IMC’s Chairman and Head of European Business Operations at Tata Communications, “ Based upon Pelion’s heritage in the Semiconductor industry, we’re confident they’ll play a strong role in our group.”
