Who we are
IoT Alliance Australia (IoTAA) is the peak industry body representing the Internet of Things (IoT) in Australia, with over 500 participating organisations and 1000 individual participants working across twelve workstreams.
We see a thriving future for Australia and the world by connecting data, devices, people, processes and things to the Internet. It helps people make better and more informed decisions to get the best possible outcomes and ultimately helps boost Australia’s future success, productivity, competitiveness, jobs, and the economy.
Now is the time for industry, government, citizens, and academia to seize the opportunities for economic growth and social benefit afforded by the Internet of Things.
Our vision is to empower industry to grow Australia’s competitive advantage through IoT.
To accelerate IoT innovation and adoption by:
- activating and supporting collaboration across industry, government, research and communities;
- promoting enabling, evidence-based policy and regulation; and
- identifying strategic opportunities for economic growth and social benefit.
Our key objectives are to:
- drive sound, evidence based input from industry into appropriate policy and regulation for IoT in Australia;
- recognise, understand and drive the national growth strategy underpinned by IoT enabling technologies, across key sectors of the Australian economy where Australia enjoys a competitive advantage; and
- promote collaboration at all levels including (but not limited to) between industry and Government, across the SME community, start-ups and investors, between service providers and problem/opportunity owners.
