There is no doubt that IoT is here to stay. According to a 2016
*, about 46% companies are delivering IoT solutions, while 29% plan to deliver an IoT solution in the next 18 months. survey
Among the top five IoT industries,
home automation, energy management, industry automation and IoT platforms top the list.
Embedded software tops the current 'technology focus for developers' working on
, followed by web development, big data and data analytics, enterprise software, IoT App Development DevOps solutions and services, cloud computing and mobile.
By the year 2017, a Gartner Inc.
estimates that 8.4 Billion things will be connected to the internet. To put this into perspective, the number of people on Earth in 2017 was 7.5 billion. study Selecting the right programming language for IoT-based product or service is a difficult decision to make.
In a world dominated by big data,
cloud migration and mobile platforms, the right IoT language must aid inter-connectivity, security and interoperability (key IoT concerns according to the survey).
Easy embedding in code and the language's long-term IoT future are deciding factors too.
But most importantly, the language should be concurrent with the enterprise and technical goals associated with its use.
We shall be subsequently writing more on other aspects of IoT in our blogs, so check our blogs out for more.
