I just posted a case study and content portfolio focused on some of the community building, messaging and content development and marketing programs I recently completed for the OpenFog Consortium.
Driving the Fog Conversation is a fun look at some of the proactive strategies and tactics I developed and implemented to drive global awareness of fog computing and to promote and populate Fog World Congress, the first international conference focused entirely on edge and fog computing.
The case study introduces fog computing and talks about some of the challenges involved in implementing a results-driven content development and marketing program from the ground up and on a time crunch. It discusses the importance of education and key messages in a proactive campaign and outlines some of the top-notch results achieved when it came to building community and driving standing room only crowds.
Some phenomenal analytics are also highlighted. In fact, this Industry 4.0 campaign delivered some of the best analytics I have ever generated during a short-term proactive program.
The content portfolio shows some of the branded content and messages I developed to position fog computing and Fog World Congress. I remain a big fan of many of the content styles I used in this extremely proactive program including the bold and simple messages that stand out in all social media feeds.

Having worked with data center, enterprise cloud and Industry 4.0 executives for the past several years, I know how confusing terms related to IoT and edge and fog computing can be to anyone looking to get up to speed on these fast-moving technologies.
The OpenFog Consortium – an organization I have supported on the messaging and content development and marketing fronts – has done a good job detailing some of the terms related to fog computing in its glossary of terms.
The team at State of the Edge has also assembled a list of edge computing terms and definitions.
But even with quality resources, confusion often abounds when it comes to understanding terms related to IoT and edge and fog computing.
This is why it was good to see Mike Krell’s end-of-year piece in RCR Wireless News, which details his take on some of these topics and trends.
It’s a nice read for understanding terms and differentiators and outlines some of the benefits these Industry 4.0 technologies can deliver.

Many industry experts have stated that open standards will help speed the deployment of a wide range of Industry 4.0 and IoT initiatives.
This is why it was good to see these two moves take place in the standards world today.
IEEE ISTO announced the formation of the Uptane Alliance, a new organization focusing on the development of security standards for connected cars and the automotive industry.
The Industrial Internet Consortium and the OpenFog Consortium announced that the two organizations will merge to further advance IoT and edge and fog computing.
Perhaps 2019 will be the year the industry sees some pretty significant output from the standards bodies working to advance open and interoperable IoT systems. – Russ DeVeau
