The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the OpenFog Consortium (OpenFog) have agreed to combine at a time when their complementary areas of technology are emerging in the mainstream. Combined memberships will continue to drive the momentum of the Industrial Internet including the development and promotion of industry guidance and best practices for fog and edge computing. The organizations expect the details to be finalized in early 2019.
