The 2021 Global IoT Trends Report is now out #IoT #InternetOfThings @Newark_Avnet
Newark reached out to their global customer base with an IoT survey between September 2020 and December 2020. They got 2,095 completed questionnaires, primarily from engineers of IoT solutions, in 60 countries. They have compiled the results into their 2021 Global IoT Trends Report.
Some interesting results:
What is the most important aspect to consider when developing IoT solutions?
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been a transformative technology, providing businesses with greater efficiency, flexibility, and opportunities for growth over the last decade.
However, as systems become ever more complex, their vulnerabilities have increased. This year, 29% of respondents cited securing the IoT as a very high priority. Even though this metric is down from 52% in 2018, securing IoT continues to be the top concern for organizations, as well as for vendors who need to respond to this increased demand for ultra-secure IoT solutions.
The second and third most important aspects among survey participants were communication reliability and the IoT ecosystem.
What is your key concern regarding IoT implementation?
As systems become ever more complex, their vulnerabilities have increased, and security continues to be the biggest concern in IoT implementation. Concerns are related to trust, security, and privacy.
36% of the respondents in 2020 said that they faced challenges related to security while adopting connected technology for IoT. This was 40% in 2018, and while a drop of 4 percentage points, this continues to be a barrier to implementation for many.
