IoT Trends: What Will 2020 Bring?
Product evangelist Lee Stacey explains what he considers the biggest trends for the Internet of Things in the coming year—including Industrial IoT, MQTT, blockchain and more.
Dec 15, 2019—
The year 2019 has witnessed a continued proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) software platforms, and no doubt 2020 will see further use cases of the IoT as it cements itself even more deeply within business operations. We'll see further development of the IoT across consumer products and supply chains, too, but some areas to consider in more detail will include:
1. MQTT Will Become the de Facto IoT Messaging Protocol
Is the Fourth Industrial Revolution finally happening? The number of consumer devices has been growing steadily for a few years, but the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has until now been relatively slow on the uptake. The IIoT has been held up by a combination of a lack of suitable technology and trust in the IoT as a whole. Important business processes—such as asset tracking, data gathering and new business modelling, to name but a few—will see enhancement through the introduction of IoT infrastructure. The past year has seen many advances in IoT technologies, particularly in security and the availability of technology. These advances will be the trigger for many IIoT networks to move from concept to reality.
3. Blockchain Meets IoT
4. Rise of the Smart Office
5. More Networks Means More Fragmentation
Lee Stacey is the chief noisemaker and product evangelist at Thingstream, which removes the complexity of creating and managing remote IIoT applications. The company combines connectivity and application management into a unique single platform. Lee has 25 years of experience working with technology-based companies, ranging from regional SMEs to global enterprises.
