The Internet of Things potential was realized by the world in 2016, there were industries in every sector that had early adopter that were able to demonstrate their solutions at trade shows around the world and then put them out on the market for use with great success.
In 2015 there was a lot of interest, but hesitation as many was concerned with issues like security, which communication protocol would prevail, and is this another technology trend or is this a viable and real solution. This was the year that people had committed to adding Internet of Things solutions to their business strategy despite their concerns.
Earlier years there was a lot of talks but not much action, and the direction had not been solidified for most companies as to whether or not they wanted to be “Beta” testers with this new technology. We also saw IoT solution providers were crafting solutions for the future, realizing the promising potential, creating partnerships with hardware and software vendors, and distributors.
The Internet of Things is set to change the world in many profound ways, by merging the physical and digital worlds, the Internet of Things could be bigger than the internet.
