Internet of Things World 2017

Internet of Things World 2017, held at the Santa Clara Convention Center,  in the heart of Silicon Valley between the 13th and 17th of May, brought together hundreds of companies and leaders in the IoT space. With a new look for 2017, were 3 days of learning, discovery, partying and networking of course. Also were at the event 150+ startups and 250+ exhibitors. Of course, that the Konker returned from this the event and we highlights here in our blog the 8 Takeaways discussed from the event.

  1. Interest in IoT Hasn’t Slowed Down

Throughout the expo halls, many industry representatives and thought leaders alike were asking questions, trading knowledge, and working to understand the different pieces of the IoT ecosystem. It was typical to hear discussions on cellular IoT, LPWANs, blockchain, and edge computing.

  1. IoT Industry is Starting to Focus on Customer Value

Chris Kocher from Grey Heron Venture Consulting urged businesses, especially startups, “You would rather be selling aspirin than vitamins.” It’s important to address real pain points rather than creating something gimmicky. Chris stressed that customer need drives everything and that IoT is no exception.

  1. No One Can Do It Alone

Lou Lutostanski, VP of IoT at Avnet, said it best: “We’re here to gain a deeper understanding of partners in the ecosystem and see how we fit and how we can use them for a full-blown solution for multiple customers.” Full IoT solutions need hardware, software, and connectivity. Few companies do it all, so partnerships are absolutely essential for success in the Internet of Things.

  1. Edge/Fog Computing is on the Rise

A lot of companies are trying to bring down the processing/analytics engine to the edge/fog level, instead of sending data to the cloud first to process. Edge/Fog Computing has advantages for applications where response time is critical or applications where too much data is generated to affordably send over the network to the cloud.

  1. Use Cases are Still Expanding

It was common to see many test beds, demos, and prototypes demonstrating the value of IoT in various verticals. As sensors continue to decrease in cost and IoT-specific networks get rolled out, expect the number of use cases to increase exponentially.

  1. Security is a Major Concern

John Maddison, the SVP of Products and Solutions at Fortinet, warned in his keynote that ransomware like WannaCry can also be a predictor of what is to come in IoT. I

  1. AI is Becoming a Key Focus

In previous years, the focus of IoT arguably seemed to be on “connecting” things to the Internet. Now, we’re seeing a push to make those things “smart” by pairing connectivity with an AI engine.

  1. Expect Continued Growth

Ten key areas that will drive growth in the Internet of Things include smart cars, intelligent transportation, smart buildings, connected homes, self-healthcare, smart cities, retail, manufacturing, energy grids, and agriculture 2.0.
