THE FUTURE OF IoT IN 2019!
The internet is prospering. It is not just about
computers, workstations, tablets, and mobile phones any longer. Presently a huge
number of gadgets are associated with the internet. Even our household goods
like washing machines, vacuum cleaners, kitchen appliances and many more are
also powered by the internet.
The concept of ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) too is fast evolving, thereby
expanding horizons for different industries like automobile, transportation,
healthcare and lot more. Internet of things can definitely pace up the
productivity and efficiency of a business. According to Bain & Company, the
Internet of Things market will be around $520 billion by 2021.
Here, in this article, I intend to highlight the predictions of IoT for the
upcoming year which will impact the development of technology.
• IoT SHALL BE MORE SECURE - IoT and threats are parallel to
each other, yet it is possible to maintain the security of the device through
proper coding, strong authentication and tested APIs. In future, IoT will have
an extensive impact on our day-to-day lives. It can even access personal data
such as social security number and banking details. The security in IoT can be
achieved if all the networks connected to it are secured and this is only
possible when security is included in the initial stages of designing the app by
constant authentication and data verification. Experts are trying hard to
install software security in the apps so that security breaches do not happen.
Hence, by keeping it short, I feel by the end of 2019, IoT will be much more
secure at all given points.
• IoT, A GREAT BOOST FOR HEALTHCARE - A survey conducted by
Forbes predicts that by the end of 2019, 87% of the healthcare companies will
opt for IoT in their business operations. The Smart Hospitals can use Hospital
Management System to enhance the wellbeing of people with the help of
regularized and monitored health check-ups, quick consultations, prescribing
proper medicines and drugs, booking appointments with the doctor, better and
efficient understanding of patients, tracking their medical history and many
more such features. Throughout 2019, there will be continuous demand for such
clinics to coordinate with the patients and understand their requests.
• IoT WILL MAKE YOUR AUTOMOBILES SMART – Presently, growing
number of vehicles have IoT powered applications that provide up-to-date
analytical data about the vehicle. This is achieved with IoT innovation, which
can capture tire weight, oil level, fuel utilization and numerous other
parameters about the vehicle. Additionally, IoT also alarms the vehicle owner
when something is not right with the motor. IoT not just alerts us about the
condition of the vehicle but also informs us of the current traffic situation on
the route. This list of IoT achievements will grow and automobiles will be
smarter as the year progresses.
• IoT WILL BOOST BUNDLED SERVICES - IoT bundling will enable us
to achieve a completely transformed and a smart world where infrastructure,
telecom and other utilities will be combined and connected with each other. By
this way, a customer can sit back and enjoy the services of multiple sectors
joined in one single thread. This implies that bundled IoT services will be a
one-stop destination for all queries which a customer may have. In 2019, we will
see a growth in number of such bundling services by utility or telecom
The future of IoT will keep evolving with changing time. Almost all innovations
will have IoT attached to them. Let’s get prepared to see the fantasy of
completely automatic urban communities work in coordination with one another.
