As we stand at the verge of finishing all our tasks for 2016, it is totally understandable that many have promptly and ritually started gathering brand new resolutions and few ambitious challenges to take on at the beginning of a new year. Predictions on how the coming year is going to be keep racing through our mind. One thing that is surely going to attain new levels of efficiency in all spheres related to human life is IoT – Internet of Things. Not just transitional, but sensing the momentum, it is going to create transformational waves. Future generation is going to see a change in human life, in all respects. Yes, the emergence of IoT is going to be the evolution of a new God of all things.
“Worldwide Internet of Things forecast from IDC indicates that by 2020, there will be a projected 30 billion connected things and a revenue opportunity of nearly $1.7T for the ecosystem.
# Factors contributing to the growth of IoT
Increased efficiency and lower costs are the two major factors contributing towards the growth of Internet of Things.
Hardware, software and other support systems working on IoT will enable deployment of applications that can connect anything within scope of internet of things. Connected devices will have huge role as they will be the heart of IoT. Smartphones, wearables, M2M devices etc will have a greater role to play. We have already started seeing the upsurge of Mobile App Developers working on all possibilities towards connecting the internet of things.
“The world is being re-shaped by the convergence of social, mobile, cloud, big data, community and other powerful forces. The combination of these technologies unlocks an incredible opportunity to connect everything together in a new way and is dramatically transforming the way we live and work,” mentioned Marc Benioff, the very famous internet entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, founder, chairman and CEO of Salesforce.
# IoT will be Pervasive. Be Ready
IoT is growing big. Predictions indicate that by 2020, nearly 6% of the economy is going to get directly affected by this growth. We can see objects communicating with each other automatically; we can see digital identity for each of us; we can see more of a transparent environment where everything works fast, direct and in real-time; we can see a unified approach towards everything – fusion of analog and digital world. Overall, we can see development of the economy in every sector. Prepare yourself and make full use of this development.
# Hip Hip, Hooray for Hybrid Mobile App Developers
Mobile connectivity is expanding its arms towards this new dimension and Mobile apps developers are going to hit sixes as they have bigger roles to play in helping people to stay connected in the IoT era. Apps bridge the gap between IoT devices and IoT ecosystem. Hybrid apps are going to dominate the market as they are capable of delivering cross-platform functionality.
Experimentation is On…
Embrace this new change. Internet of Things is in the development stage. Experts are still working in this model to ensure that everything is connected and working together. Smart homes, wearables, smart cities, connected cars are the existing trend. More surprises to come in the future days. Soon you will wake up to check that your coffee percolator has ordered coffee powder on its own, washing machine has sensed its duty, your car has gone to pick up your child and many more. Surprise yourself with the new wish fulfilment fantasy!!!
