    There are a wide range of standards bodies and alliances working in the IOT space.


    The IoT Alliance Australia is group of 400 corporates in Australia aiming to influence market development. 

    This alliance focuses on the complexity of IoT across all technologies, and brings together the work being done in government, research and the community. It was founded based on evidence that similar collaborative consortia of industry and government have led to highly competitive IoT sectors.

    This competitive edge also requires building the skill sets of engineers, business people and the workforce.

    IoTAA is structured along both supply and demand sides of the IoT sector as shown in the diagram below. They are currently focused over the six application sectors in the following diagram, and are considering expanding into the health sector.
