Testing the Internet of Things 2.0

“By 2018, mobile phones are expected to be surpassed by IoT devices, including connected cars, machines, utility meters, remote metering and consumer electronics. The number of IoT devices is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 20 percent between 2016 and 2022. By 2022, the number of connected devices is expected to reach 29 billion.”                                                                                       – Ericsson Mobility Report: On the Pulse of the Networked Society, June 2016

As the buzz surrounding the “Internet of Things” (IoT) starts to subside we now are beginning to see the evolution as well as the fallout from everything connected. There are currently more than 12 billion devices connected to the internet, and that number is projected to duble within four years. IoT has been most pervasive in consumer goods such as wearable tech and home automation; however, industrial applications are where the true benefits of interconnectivity can be seen. It has been estimated that manufacturing companies worldwide will spend $500 billion annually by 2020 on Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and that the value generated by the IIoT will reach a staggering $15 trillion per year by 2030.

In this context, there is an urgent need to reexamine the emerging software opportunities and challenges associated with IIoT and to understand how focusing on technology and software testing plays a critical role in developing an interconnected product.

The white paper “Testing the Internet of Things 2.0” is a continuance of the white paper “Testing the Internet of Things,” discussing the key software challenges present in the development of IoT devices, and how best practices can be leveraged to mitigate many of the challenges faced throughout the product lifecycle.
