IoT made simple:
What Directors need to know to adapt to IoT: Gavin Smith
IoTAA Security Guideline
The IoT Alliance Australia is working with the education sector to develop an IoT Skills barometer. The intention is to use this as a tool to identify where to focus our efforts in developing the IoT skills we need most in Australia. You can help us by answering the survey, IoT Skills Barometer which is designed to see if organizations like yours experience a skills-gap with regards to adopting IoT solutions for your businesses.
This survey has 8 to 12 questions, depending on your answers. The first few questions are about you and your organization. The second few are about the status of IoT and the role of data in your organization. The last couple of questions are about the skills that you think need to be improved to advance the adoption of IoT for better business and service outcomes. In all, it should take no longer than 8 or 9 minutes to complete.
Many thanks to Erik van Vulpen, from Latrobe University for leading this initiative.

Australian IoT Awards bring IoT projects, technologies and people from different platforms like water, smart cities, health, transport, energy, agriculture, manufacturing, communities and cybersecurity across Australia, together.
IoTAA CEO Frank Zeichner said it was time to shine a greater spotlight on the world-class ecosystem emerging in Australia around the use of IoT. “The work going on in the local IoT ecosystem is significant and it’s helping Australia address many challenges, including our world competitiveness. We are creating a bigger stage for the best of this work to encourage further collaboration and innovation,” Zeichner said.
The Australian IoT Awards will see a merger of IoT Hub’s previous awards program and the IOTAA Impact Awards, said Darren McNally, General Manager, nextcustom. “It’s great to join forces with IoTAA and deliver a joint awards program worthy of the Australian IoT community,” McNally said.
Nominations open in July 2020, with information on how to enter published on IoT Hub.
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. Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of IoT in Australia to improve our competitive advantage and benefit society.
We see a thriving future for Australia and the world by connecting data, devices, people, processes and things to the Internet.

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.
IoT Alliance Australia Workstreams – where it happens
Our work-program spans 12 workstreams which focus on industry vertical sectors and key IoT enablers. They are:
- Smart Cities
- Food and Agribusiness
- Data Use, Access and Privacy
- Cybersecurity & Network Resilience
- Platforms and Interoperability
- IoT Start-ups
Our COVID-19 discussion hub was recently launched delivering interviews and analysis on industry responses to the dynamically changing economic and social crisis; how IoT companies are supporting Australian clients, emerging data issues, and the role of IoT in a post-COVID-19 world.
The hub is supported by IoTAA and members Entech Electronics, Honesty Box, Inmarsat, KPMG, Meshed, Optus, Reekoh, Successful Endeavours, Telstra and the University of Wollongong Smart Infrastructure Facility.
“With our bipartisan bill now one step closer to becoming law, we’ll be able to realise the full potential of the Internet of Things, and help the private and public sectors work together to produce well-informed policies on connected technology,” said Senator Schatz.
