Abstract: This Information Age article presents some predictions by tech industry experts about the evolution of the IoT and the edge in 2020, and about how businesses might leverage these changes. Among those interviewed was InfluxData CEO Evan Kaplan, who is quoted as saying: “Smart cars and internet-connected machines are starting to produce huge volumes of time-stamped data that companies need to collect and analyse, while new software monitoring and measuring strategies have created enormous logs of events that need similar treatment.” Kaplan also notes that many enterprises will realize that they need a specific strategy for time series data to gain its full business potential.
