In this post we will try to foresee what is in store for IoT in 2017.
IoT Will Impact the Omnichannel– The convergence of digital and physical worlds across multiple channels has dramatically changed how businesses reach and manage customer relationships. This results in a transformation of marketing.
“Things” Grow Up and Get Smarter– The average amount of computing power is growing and things are getting smarter and more connected.
Data Collection Migrates to the Cloud– Next year, data collection will move to the cloud. One of the big purposes will be to use AI algorithms to recognize not only someone’s speech but also how to optimize the operations of a machine.
Companies Will Develop More Sensical IoT Products– In 2017, we will see a growing number of consumer-facing connected products that use connectivity to solve real problems. Winning IoT products will have a service component.
Standards Will Remain Messy– There is nothing close to a shared language, and there are a plethora of competing standards.
Tesla’s Elon Musk recently made waves recently by promising that, by the end of 2017, he’ll have a car ready that can drive from Los Angeles to New York without the need for a human driver.
