It’s the time of year for all technological industries to look back on 2018 realizations and begin planning their needs for 2019. The blog GeoAwesomeness has published a blog post which detail CEO expectations for geospatial industries in 2019.
It is in this context that NSim Technologies’s CEO, Jimmy Perron, comments trends expected in the geo-IoT world for 2019:
“In our view, in 2019, we will see more and more business trying to leverage their ‘live’ location data. The combination of geospatial data (GIS) and live IoT data will drive the adoption of real-time business processes in multiple industries. The IoTs field focuses mainly on objects that are connected to the cloud space by focusing on how and what. However, by adding a where to the equation, we open ourselves up to a world of new opportunities by enabling ‘location intelligence’. With more than 75 billion of connected devices by 2020, this is, for sure, an aspect that cannot be ignored by the geospatial domain.”
