Big Business Joins IoT Group
Looking to embrace the technology-based future, the Business Council of Australia (BCA) has joined the Internet of Things Alliance Australia (IoTAA), and will become a member of the Aussie alliance’s executive council.
The IoTAA, chaired by John Stanton – also CEO of the Communications Alliance – was created in 2015 as the voice of the IoT industry in Australia.
Stanton yesterday hailed the BCA move, noting that it is made up of the CEOs of more than 130 of Australia’s top companies. “We look forward to making use of that horsepower to help ensure that Australia can benefit from the positive disruptive force that is IoT,” he said.
He also noted that the alliance has created six workstreams working on issues including spectrum availability, smart cities, network resilience, fostering IoT start-ups, data sharing and privacy.
