Considering the speed at which IoT has made its place in our lives, would we move past home connected home appliances and home assistance? IoT trends are rapidly surfacing, here are the top 10 latest predictions for IoT that are going to rule in 2020. Due to the widespread adoption of IoT, the number of connected devices is increasing. This leads the network to expand, the data to increase, and places more information at risk. The increased use of IoT is going to be teamed up by improved IoT security. Home security and patient health are at risk as the majority of the data are secured in the cloud that calls for increased focus on IoT security. The coming year is going to see an improved IoT security system. And this need arises from the complexities of the diverse nature of IoT technology. The number of IoT devices has crossed 26 billion and is expected to increase. Hacking of IoT networks and devices is going to become common in the future, so we are going to see measures implemented for its control.

IoT developers to focus more on smart healthcare post-COVID-19

Article | April 2, 2020

Healthcare technologies will be a greater priority among IoT service providers once the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 die down, according to Forrester Research. Based on its latest figures, only 7% of the work that major IoT service providers deliver in APAC is on Smart Healthcare. The crisis has triggered a lot of ideas and solutions, however there was simply no time to look at a more strategic approach for both the technologies and the processes. This will be the focus of governments, health care providers, and others, once the acute crisis is behind us,” said Achim Granzen, principal analyst at Forrester, told FutureIoT. He added: “I expect this number to increase past Covid-19, as governments, healthcare providers, and others will seek to harden many of the ad-hoc systems and measures they have put into place during the crisis.”

Automotive Sales: Improving the Customer Experience Using IoT

Article | April 7, 2020

Customer touchpoints throughout the automotive sales cycle are prime candidates for IoT innovation. Across the board, the data derived from these IoT applications have the capability to provide insights and actionable outcomes which can significantly improve the customer experience. When a customer arrives at a dealership, it may be difficult for the dealer to know if they have what the customer is looking for. For instance, a customer might be coming in to see a particular vehicle, test-drive a car they’ve already seen, or to casually browse their options. Without any data behavior on the customer beforehand, sales personnel or the dealership may not be properly equipped to handle the customer’s request. Perhaps a requested car is no longer on the main show floor for immediate display but instead buried somewhere in a backlot. Maybe another car that was requested for a test drive may not yet be properly serviced for operation. These are only a few of the challenges associated with automotive sales that IoT is capable of helping to improve.
