How will device and data management cope as IoT pumps up the volume?

Five years ago, analysts estimated 50 billion devices by 2020.

With a new decade just around the corner and the number of connected devices sitting at the single digit mark, you might think this missed projection signals failure but really it is just a symptom of overhype. Actually, IoT growth shows no signs of slowing down.

Research from Arm estimates one trillion devices by 2035.

In this new issue of Tech Trends, we pull focus to the next phase in IoT – hyperscale device and data management – managing devices and the data they create to generate valuable insights without the costs running away with themselves will be a massive challenge and absolutely essential for success.
