The internet of things (IoT) is bound to make enormous strides in 2017. The experts are tweaking with the IoT applications to implement smart offices and smart homes with effective applications like climate control for instance, along with other uses to facilitate and augment the energy consumption and the security related aspects
Several Internet of Thing products have seen increased popularity in the market with devices like home thermostats, the door locks which are controlled by smartphones and smart fridges as well. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Below mentioned are some of the latest vogues with regards to IoT and its products for the year 2017.
Rise in vertical applications
The IoT appliances which are related to smart cars, security and climate controls will integrate together in the future. At present the IoT solutions like smart cars and smart cities will prevail with respect to popularity in this year.
The arrival of IoT marketplaces
IoT marketplaces will also feel the considerable presence related to increased adoption for the present year.

Big Data and IoT analytics
IoT analytics are also in the limelight this year where when integrated with IoT cloud platforms the IoT devices become storage centers for the huge data. The data can be synced with IoT analytic logics to provide details regarding the enterprises’ targetted domain. This vogue thus helps small enterprises to take advantage of the analytics which was previously done only for bigger enterprises.
Intensifying machine learning integration
Machine learning can progress on its own but integrating it with IoT enhances its features abundantly and intensely. Related to IoT analytics, artificial intelligence can be catapulted to the next level.
Emphasis on Security
Another trend this year is the application of security to fortify the devices which are integrated with one another and to reduce the risk of being exposed. This is the best time for security startups to make use of this opportunity to ascertain that the IoT devices and interlinked systems are well protected.
