With standards and protocols being the key to universal IoT adoption, 2018 was the year where the focus and energy in the IoT space switched to various consortiums and standards bodies and away from corporate IoT effors, some of which faded since 2017. The influencers list this year thus welcomes several consortiums that are transforming the IoT by bringing order out of the chaos. Organizations that hold events, such as developer conferences, are also considered particularly influential.
