Founding Members

Corporate Members


The mission of RealTime Society is to serve and strengthen the global real-time community. RealTime Society provides a neutral forum for in-depth exploration, sharing and learning, bringing together the innovators and implementers of real-time technologies who are changing the way we work, remotely and collaboratively.

Community Engagement

Bringing together leaders, engineers, practitioners, innovators, creators, decision makers, and financial experts to work together and inspire each other.

Facilitate Cross-Pollination

Connecting communities, knowledgable experts, industries and market sectors that are too often siloed.

Identify and Solve Problems

Identify problems, define expected outcomes, and facilitate collaboration of experts to solve these problems.

Inspire & Support

Create a space for socialization between peers, support and strengthen members’ real-time work, and inspire RealTime Society members through shared perspectives from different industries.

Previsualize the Future

Encourage advancements in products, services, and uses of real-time technologies that anticipate evolutions, previsualize and forge the future.

Boost Visibility and Recognition

Provide visibility to stakeholders, at all levels, recognize advancements, and honor achievements in real-time through awards and events.


RealTime Society is a collaborative problem-solving organization.

How can we solve these problems together?
By asking the questions that generate the research and engagement that produces solutions for the real-time community.

RTC Society seeks to enable these outcomes by:
– Creating SIGs that are supported by member companies
– The support of the RTC team for administration and oversight
– Management of public facing activities under the RTC banner
– Distribution of data amongst member companies
