IoT in 2019

IoT Today

The Internet of Things, also known as IoT, is continuing to grow. And even more rapidly as than predicted in 2016. See Internet of Things drives Economic Growth.

Some recent studies show we are headed for 25 billion connected devices in 2020 with 127 devices a second being connected. The big growth sectors are healthcare, smart cities, logistics and enterprise in general.

The following IoT infographic shows how this is progressing.

So that is quite a bit to take in. As usual, growth is coming from real value propositions that have a compelling business case rather than just trying things to see what happens. The big statistic that stood out to me, is that 94% of businesses had already seen a return on their IoT investments. Our clients investing in custom IoT appliances are certainly seeing that.

An example of the smart cities growth opportunities is in environmental monitoring covering air quality, sound, micro-climate and occupancy. The arcHUB example below can do all of that today and is independently solar powered and self contained. An article on Making Smart Cities Even Smarter shows examples of it in use. And this is just one small example.
