Supporting Cross-Organizational Assimilation of IoT Innovation Exemplified by the ChainPORT Initiative

AbstractThe chainPORT community of port authorities (PAs) around the world gave their commitment to collaborate. Many PAs developed Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions to increase their operational efficiency. Within its IT solutions workgroup, the challenge of supporting the diffusion and assimilation of these IoT innovations was adressed by creating a centralized communication platform for IoT solutions to allow inter-organizational knowledge exchange. We draw upon the knowledge gained by analyzing 24 solutions from 8 port authorities and present concepts on how the specific challenges in this setting were adressed and what principles guided the creation of the emerging IT artifact.
