London (1 March 2021): Software AG, a leading provider of integrated software solutions that allow for deployment of connected, remote devices, has joined the IoT M2M Council, a trade association with membership comprised of 25,000 enterprise users and product makers that buy technology solutions loosely described as the “Internet of Things”. With the move, Software AG expects to extend its thought leadership among one group in particular – executives with enterprise-wide responsibilities.

“A plurality of IMC’s rank-and-file membership is operations managers that are adopting IoT solutions, so these are business people with problems to solve,” says Jon Weiss, the company’s VP of Emerging Technologies, who will sit on the IMC Board of Governors, “Software AG’s technology suite is designed to eliminate data silos from app to edge and empower exactly these people to go out and create transformative business models.”

IMC’s Adopter Members cover 27 different vertical markets of application – from manufacturing to healthcare providers – and they are dispersed around the globe. Many are enterprise users managing supply change, but they also include product makers using communications technology, as well as apps developers and systems integrators. Software platforms are one of IMC Adopters most highly sourced technology categories.

“We welcome Software AG to our group as a true leader in the IoT sector and we look forward to their input on a range of issues. Right now, our main focus is helping all of our board companies maintain thought leadership during the pandemic with our online events,” says Kim Bybjerg, IMC Chairman and Head of European Business Operations for IoT connectivity provider Tata Communications.

The IMC has developed a complete schedule of online conferences for 2021, which are routinely drawing more than 1,000 registrants, over 70% will typically identify as IoT buyers. The IMC also organizes exclusive events in conjunction with the Consumer Electronics Show and Hannover Messe, the world’s largest consumer products and manufacturing exhibitions, respectively.
