Have we reached peak IoT yet?

In a world where anyone can talk nonsense about the Internet of Things, isn’t it nice to know that there is a place where you can go and spend time with people who know what they are talking about and have been building the Internet of Things for years?

IoT Market Predictions. Guaranteed Nonsense

There is one thing certain in any emerging technology space, predictions for the size of the market will grow rapidly over a short period of time as analysts and researchers produce reports that predict bigger and bigger numbers.

Some of the highlights…

  • Bain – annual revenue for vendors in 2020 could be $ 470 billion
  • McKinsey – IoT market size will grow from $ 900 million in 2015 to $ 3.7 billion by 2020 (37% CAGR)
  • General Electric – Investment in Industrial IoT could top $ 60 TRILLION in next 15 years.
  • IHS – installed base of IoT devices could grow from 15.9 billion in 2015 to 75.4 billion in 2025.
  • Gartner – installed base in 2016 could be 6.4 billion devices growing to 20.8 billion in 2020.

McKinsey IoT Internet of Things

It’s noticeable that these types of reports tend to increase market size over time for some simple reasons: as you start to measure something, you tend to find more examples and so the overall number of things you can measure increases; demonstrating ‘research’ that show big numbers is a good way to get the attention of the CXOs in large companies, something that Bain, McKinsey, GE and others for example are always keen to do; paid research reports and analyses are often purchased by people in the industry who want to, for example, build a case to raise investment for their business so the bigger numbers tend to attract more purchases than reports that says a market is very small.

We know the market is growing, we should be wary of research that produces numbers that are so large that they become meaningless.

How Does A Mega-Project Planned 10 Years Ago Use Ideas That Weren’t Invented? | Marie Gilmore, CrossRail | IoT Forum 2016

Marie Gilmour, Innovation Programme Manager, CrossRail

Marie Gilmour is a Management Consultant with the Nichols Group, currently engaged as Innovation Programme Manager within CrossRail’s Innovation programme, Innovate18.

Digging tunnels and constructing stations under Europe’s largest capital city, London, makes CrossRail the largest construction project in Europe by some margin. Such projects inevitably have long timelines and planning cycles. Marie talks about how the CrossRail Innovation Programme has sought and deployed new solutions. What are the challenges a mega project of this type has in bringing new ideas into a highly structured and regulated environment? What problems is CrossRail looking to solve and how can an innovation driven business engage in this and similar programmes?

Eating the IoT Elephant: The Missing Links in IoT | Pilgrim Beart, DevicePilot | Internet of Things Forum 2015

How to Eat the IoT Elephant

Pilgrim Beart is CEO of DevicePilot, a service which enables connected-product companies to scale-up quickly without escalating costs by taking care of the management of their devices. Pilgrim argues, entertainingly, that for IoT in the Enterprise, there are so many challenges in building the infrastructure, platforms, services, products and connected objects in the Internet of Things that in fact, the real opportunities come from doing a small piece of the puzzle extremely well.
