NASSCOM will now collaborate and promote innovation in IoT space in partnership with Georgia Institute of Technology. Centre of Excellence for Internet of Things (COE-IoT) of NASSCOM will work closely with Georgia Tech’s Atlanta-based Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies (CDAIT).
Sanjeev Malhotra, CEO of COE-IoT said "The disruptive nature of IoT will have a major impact in all areas of the consumer’s life – across all industries including industrial, healthcare, agriculture and smart homes. IoT will also be used across these industries to improve productivity with minimum usage of natural resources." Sanjeev also hopes that the partnership will counter the current protective sentiments prevalent in US. When people at a ground level are collaborating, they become a voice in the nation. It travels up through various channels. It definitely helps is slowing that protectionist attitude,” Malhotra said.
Alain Louchez, Managing Director of GTARC's Centre for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies said "In close cooperation with Nasscom's IoT centre, we intend to explore ways to leverage IoT technologies to accelerate and optimise the pace of digital transformation throughout the economy.”
