About the Challenges

We are excited to launch a series of IoT Challenges aimed at solving real problems and advancing the validation of industrial internet applications and solutions. The current Challenges are co-organized with the Industrial Internet Consortium. MachNation, a global independent IoT research and benchmarking firm, is co-producing.

In these Challenges, architects and solution providers will compete to design industrial internet solutions that address high-profile, real-world problems. The Challenges will be conducted over a period of several months, culminating in the announcement of winners selected by a jury. They will be open to vendors, organizations, teams and individuals worldwide. Prizes for winners include a live customer Proof of Concept.

The Challenges represent an excellent opportunity for end users to address a complex technology challenge that they have not yet resolved as they adopt the industrial internet within their business models and processes. The Challenges will create interest around emerging use cases and value chains in the industrial internet. The intent is to draw attention to industry IoT challenges and solutions and to help bring products to market.
