The I3 community includes the I3 Consortium & I3 Systems. The Consortium seeks to improve data based collaboration. I3 Systems makes software from I3 concepts.

Several principals in the I3 Consortium movement moved to create a new company, I3 Systems in February 2020. Separate from the ongoing research and development efforts of the I3 Consortium, this company was created to provide operational support to these new data-centric networks that were designed to foster a spirit of collaboration between data-centric organizations. Their efforts include operational support of I3 systems but go beyond that to cover many of the needs these future networks will require. Information on I3 Systems can be found at

I3 is the name of opensource software developed by the I3 Consortium with guidance from the University of Southern California (USC) Viterbi School of Engineering and Marshall School of Business. The I3 software was designed to allow communities of IoT data owners to work together on common data problems. The Opensource version of the software was released in December 2019 and is free to download from GitHub. Information on the open source project can be found at
