New Whitepaper: The “Internet of Things” Will Be Obsolete by 2020

Tony Scherba
April 26, 2016

In a new whitepaper, “Living, Learning and Working in 2020 with the Internet of Things,” San Francisco-based product development and design studio, Yeti LLC, takes a look at how the Internet of Things (IoT) is already impacting five key arenas of everyday life, and how in-development products will continue our march towards a new standard of technology-based living.

“Experimenting with and learning from emerging trends is a big priority at Yeti because we know our clients rely on us to be as innovative as possible,” said Yeti CEO Tony Scherba. “We wrote this whitepaper because we noticed that a lot of companies we encountered were looking at IoT as a feature for their products when instead they could use it as a service, which is limiting. We believe that the right IoT strategy can enhance and improve not only the experience of the user, but a product’s value and marketability as well.”

The whitepaper also makes three key predictions for 2020: (1) The IoT will blur the line between products and services, (2) Hardware and software engineering will become one, and (3) We will stop calling it IoT because it will be the new standard. It also takes a deeper look at how the IoT is currently playing out and will continue to evolve in five key areas.
