Our own Simon Moffatt has written an interesting show report from the IoT World Forum that was held in London on Nov. 26-28.
This week saw the 2 day Internet of Things World Forum conference take place in London. There is clearly a general consensus, that the IoT market is a multi-trillion dollar opportunity, through the implementation of items such as consumer wearables, embedded predictive failure components and data collecting sensors.
The rapid rise in connected devices and IoT ecosystems, is seemingly being driven by several key factors, including falling cost of both connectivity and data storage. These lowering barriers to entry, coupled with more developer friendly ecosystems and open platforms, is helping to fulfil new revenue generating business opportunities in multiple verticals including manufacturing and healthcare.
