The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) announce they have agreed to a liaison to work together to advance their shared interests. Under the agreement, the IIC and OGC will work together to align efforts to maximize interoperability, portability, security, and privacy for the industrial Internet.
Joint activities between the IIC and OGC will include: identifying and share best practices; realizing interoperability by harmonizing architectures and other elements; collaborating on standardization; supporting joint participation in conferences and events of mutual interest to provide technical expertise on removing digital integration and interoperability barriers, and more.
The IIC Liaison Working Group is the gateway for formal relationships with standards and open-source organizations, consortia, alliances, certification, and testing bodies and government entities/agencies. The agreement with the OGC is one of a number of agreements made by the IIC’s Liaison Working Group.
