Prediction for 2019 – IoT in Australia

2018 will go down as a turning point for IoT. It was a period of time that saw meaningful progress on IoT projects moving into operation. Some companies took the bold step to be innovators and leaders in their industry segments. Across multiple industries like Energy, Healthcare, Transport, Industrial/Resource automation and Facilities Management, we are seeing the signs of companies taking the early adopter advantage. With the advent of cost-effective sensors, aggressive tariffing of communication services and flexible, scaleable, cloud-based IoT platforms, disruptive solutions are now possible without the need of heavy IT integration and in-depth knowledge of the full stack.

However, more has to be done to unleash the “billion devices connected” potential, analysts keep talking about.
