Every year I put together a list of digital transformation trends we are likely to see in the upcoming year and later this month I will be releasing the predictions for 2019. Now that we are more than halfway through 2018, and year out since the original predictions were made, I wanted to take some time and discuss where we are now. Have any of these predictions come to fruition? Are there some lagging behind? The past eight months of 2018 have shown us just how fast the world of technology moves. So, let’s take a look at what’s happened so far and discuss what we can expect for the remainder of the year.
1. IoT Everywhere
Last year, I said that there were three main trends with IoT at the core—analytics, edge computing, and 5G—and that’s still true today. While some of these trends have really taken off in the last six months—I’m looking at you, analytics—others are just starting to really burgeon into a new frontier. There was a reason I had IoT first on my list, it’s paving the way for these trends and will likely continue to do so for years to come.
