The IoT M2M Council has welcomed Incognito Software Systems, a Canadian supplier of broadband service orchestration and IoT management (IMC).
The IMC is a 25,000-member trade association. Incognito has joined the IoT ecosystem to raise awareness among potential customers and partners, as well as to contribute and participate.
Incognito’s IoT device and service management platform excels at centralized lifecycle management of multi-vendor devices using multiple protocols, real-time big data collection and analytics, and end-to-end integration, making it a good fit for the IMC’s rank-and-file adopter membership of enterprise users and product makers.
“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 surged recently, expanding by more than 50% since the beginning of the year to well over 30 firms that supply IoT products and services, including new additions such as Microsoft, Arm, and Quectel. The success of the group’s online events, which consistently attract high-quality audiences, with over 70% identifying as purchasers of IoT equipment, has been a major driver of growth.
The IMC also provides template RFP documents and procurement standards for IoT, software-widget surveying tools, a substantial online library of use-cases, and regular, push-content news channels to its members.
“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.”
With over 25,000 IoT enterprise users, device makers and designers, and app developers as members, the IMC is the world’s largest trade organization dedicated to the worldwide IoT and M2M sector.
