IoT isn't the cool kid on the block anymore

In 2016, IoT will continue to become a basic commodity in any data pipeline, fading into the background of the Internet. IoT isn't the cool kid on the block anymore. It's becoming more and more commoditized. We'll stop seeing new IoT applications and start seeing IoT built into the applications and services we're already using.

Through current IoT infrastructures, we're collecting massive amounts of data. New and improved databases will no longer throw data away and use it in a more timely manner, as well as increase the speed at which it's analyzed. As a result, we'll see a tighter integration between analytics and databases enabling a speed that we can't currently conceive. And while we've found ways to profit from some IoT applications many still lack true ROI. With this faster, more integrated analytics platform running tighter within databases, we will be able to find better ways to profit from IoT as it runs in the background of the rest of our applications.
