The 5 IoT Trends Business Should Look for in 2021

As we prepare a good start for our business 2021, connected devices will keep on defining numerous industries. Several trends continue to gather momentum, encouraging IoT’s prominence in 2021 from data-intensive experiences that use IoT to basic health needs as COVID-19 continues to take center stage.

While IoT technologies will be enlisted for basic needs, it will also be key for higher customer service and experience efforts at the same time. This means many IoT technologies will lay a foundation and help organizations progress to focus on mature areas such as these two.

Business owners and governments utilize IoT to drive process efficiencies, reduce cost, and create better user experiences. When more and more organizations will see IoT as a useful technology, this will only result in mass adoption because IoT’s overall impact on industries is tremendous. Here are the five hot IoT trends to watch in 2021.

More Connectivity Options

Over the past years, there has been a good deal of connectivity options and their potential for data-intensive processes such as 5G. However, there will be a variety of options, and organizations will really have to think about what use cases they will pursue and what connectivity option makes the most sense. For example, a smart vehicle requires a different type of connectivity than a piece of machinery on the factory floor.

Smart Healthcare

IoT in healthcare has developed slowly over the years, but recent events in combination with current IoT trends have created a suitable for innovation. Amid the global pandemic, digital health solutions that relate to COVID-19 are rising. Demand for IoT health applications such as consultations, digital diagnostics, remote monitoring, and robot assistance is increasing. The solutions in 2020 will set IoT trends in 2021 and dictate the future of IoT in this field.

Hybrid Work Model

More businesses embrace hybrid workplaces where some employees are fully work remotely, some go into a physical office, and others work from a combination of both. For this new workplace model to be successful, companies need access to high-quality collaboration solutions for all virtual interactions. In 2021, IoT will provide it for employees who are working away from physical offices, enabling them to reduce distractions and improve productivity everywhere.

Smart Manufacturing

At the current state of progress, the manufacturing industry is beginning to utilize AI technologies for advanced analytics, predictive maintenance, and process optimization. For these applications, IoT provides scalable infrastructure and a way of extractive a large amount of data in real-time. In 2021, combined with AI, IoT will ensure better safety, efficiency, and effectiveness in the work environment and accurate collaborative robots with precise motion capabilities.

Smart Retail

Retail stores began to explore curbside pickups and other location-based services in the wake of COVID-19, and the use of location data to enhance customer service will only continue. Over time, there will be more opportunities to create location-based experiences to interact with a brand. In the coming year, customers may check in to a location on a phone to maintain distance and avoid waiting in line.

IoT is starting to mature and will become a full-blown business technology in 2021. The trends above will help you identify ways your enterprise can become IoT-ready. As soon as possible, you should prepare to brace for IoT’s impact by figuring out the best way to adopt the technology.
