Webinar: Machina Research IoT Predictions 2017
Every January, Machina Research shares its predictions for IoT in the coming year. In a webinar on January 19th, co-founders Jim Morrish and Matt Hatton discussed what we think will happen in 2017, derived from a host of suggestions from Machina Research's market leading analyst team.

The last twelve months has seen some momentous events in the development of IoT. It saw some massive and crucial M&A including Cisco’s purchase of Jasper Technologies, Softbank’s acquisition of ARM, and Qualcomm’s of NXP. Some of the biggest technology deals of the year were focused on the pursuit of IoT. We also saw redoubled efforts by the tech giants to focus a lot more attention on IoT, including Microsoft, IBM, HPE and AWS. Another eye-catching announcement saw Verizon place a USD3 billion bet on the fleet management sector with deals for Fleetmatics and Telogis. And this year saw lots of connected car and smart cities announcement (including the opening of the super-innovative Milton Keynes data hub). And it’s just possible that someone has finally gotten to grips with the smart home: time will tell if Qivicon, Amazon Echo or Google Home prove to be the answer. On the technology side, it was all go on access networks this year as we saw the arrival of the NB-IoT standard, and further roll outs of LoRa and Sigfox. There were also some hair-raising security challenges hitting home in 2016 including the well-publicised DDOS attack in October.

What does 2017 hold in store? You’ll need to tune in for the Machina Research IoT Predictions 2017 webinar to find out. You can expect talk on 5G, virtualisation, data management, analytics, security, machine learning and cognitive systems, amongst many others.
