Gartner Shares Internet of Things Trends
IT-Online reports on a Gartner study of the Internet of Things (IoT) trends that will affect digital business innovation from 2018 to 2023. For example, “by 2023, the average CIO will be responsible for more than three times as many endpoints as this year,” so they “should ensure they have the necessary skills and partners to support key emerging IoT trends and technologies. …”
AI is one of the major “trends that will enable new revenue streams and business models. … The technology landscape for AI is complex and will remain so through 2023, with many IT vendors investing heavily in AI, variants of AI coexisting, and new AI-based tolls and services emerging. Despite this complexity, it will be possible to achieve good results with AI in a wide range of IoT situations. As a result, CIOs must build an organisation with the tools and skills to exploit AI in their IoT strategy.”
Additionally, “As the IoT matures and becomes more widely deployed, a wide range of social, legal and ethical issues will grow in importance. These include ownership of data and the deductions made from it; algorithmic bias; privacy; and compliance with regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation.”
