The status of Internet of Things in 2016 according to Jason Hope
- IoT will turn out to be a household name
He predicts that come 2016, connected technology will be a household name. Theo Priestly, a prominent technology expert who serves as a writer for Forbes, concurs with Jason Hope’s predictions.
- Massive utilization of data by businesses
While the Internet of Things avails enormous amount of data to companies, they currently do not utilize it effectively. In 2016, Hope expects to witness a clear understanding of the importance of this data, strategies for leveraging it to make wise business decisions, and how to determine what data from both connected technology and the sensor are utilized properly.
- The birth of printed electronics
Sensor built into paper-thin devices popularly called printed electronic are going to be commonplace in 2016. The Blue Label Whiskey bottles (Jonnie Walker) has already started the journey to printed electronics. Thin Film Electronics ASA’s CEO, Dr. Davor Sutija, believes that printed electronics will be incorporated into everyday objects.
- Manufacturing and healthcare will influence other sectors towards embracing IoT devices
Hope is optimistic that connected devices will gain instant popularity in two particular sectors: healthcare and manufacturing. Findings from different studies indicate that these two industries can reap numerous profits from IoT. Other industries and business will venture into the market and try to exploit the efficiency and cost saving advantages enjoyed by both manufacturing and healthcare sectors via connected devices.
