EMEA Internet of Things 2014 Top 10 Predictions

LONDON, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

EMEA Internet of Things 2014 Top 10 Predictions

IoT is one of the hot topics in the ICT industry, and it is not difficult to see why. IDC forecasts there will be 212 billion devices or things connected to networks by 2020. To put this into context, there are approximately 750 million buildings connected to networks with fixed communications, and around 6 billion people today connect to networks using mobile technologies.

"In EMEA in 2014, IDC predicts that the number of connected things will increase exponentially, revenues will increase at a linear rate, and most solutions will be based within vertical sectors. We also predict that investment in horizontal platforms will increase, the ecosystem will begin to mature, and most of the money to be made in IoT will be in the provision of applications/solutions," said Mike Cansfield, associate vice president, Telecoms, EMEA. "Within these solutions, Big Data and analytics will be of pivotal importance to derive value, as will the professional services needed to create the application. But not everything in the IoT garden is rosy -- security concerns and regulatory uncertainties persist, and the lack of investment by mobile software companies could also act as a brake on growth."
