Another year is rapidly ticking by. Now 2018 is upon us and the age of digital shows no signs of slowing. Technology is driving a generation of change across every industry, profession, and personal point of persuasion.
Now, after extensive research, and several months of gauging the technology market, we publish our Top 10 Tech Trends that will shape 2018.
Here we have Tech Trend No.9: IoT Convergence
It started with mobile spawning the cloud, the cloud spawning big data, and all 3 spawning the IoT. ‘Connected Things’ are set to transform every market, B2B and B2C, as our physical world merges further with the digital world to reinvent the way we work, rest and play.
As physical and digital realities merge (AI, VR, AR) and computational power increases (edge, cognitive, quantum computing), the IoT is set to revolutionize the next decade of technology evolution. Where it goes from here depends on 2 things:
- Securing all that data: The IoT will converge technologies, creating a swathe of big data risks and opportunities. Securing the IoT is pivotal.
- Service must keep pace with devices: Innovation and uptake of IoT devices will only be as successful as the service levels these devices receive.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the IoT as it converges and trends in 2018.
