COVID-19 Impact on Upcoming Events

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) makes headlines around the world, conferences and community events throughout our industry continue to be cancelled or postponed.

With the health and safety of our employees and community members as a top priority, the Eclipse Foundation has decided to restrict all non-essential travel for our staff through mid-May. We will not be attending any events during this period, and will assess our participation beyond that point following recommendations from the Canadian federal government, the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We will continue to provide updates about our participation in events through our social media channels: Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

IoT Commercial Adoption Survey Results Now Available

The results of our 2019 IoT Commercial Adoption Survey are now available here.

The goal of this survey was to gather insights that would help IoT ecosystem stakeholders gain a better understanding of the IoT industry landscape and the requirements, priorities, and challenges faced by organizations that are deploying and using commercial IoT solutions.

Key findings from the survey include:

  • IoT may well live up to the hype, if somewhat slower than expected. Just under 40 percent of survey respondents are deploying IoT solutions today. Another 22 percent plan to start deploying IoT within the next two years.
  • IoT investment is on the rise, with 40 percent of organizations planning to increase their IoT spending in the next fiscal year.
  • Open source pervades IoT as a key enabler with 60 percent of companies factoring open source into their IoT deployment plans.
  • Hybrid clouds lead the way for IoT deployments. Overall, AWS, Azure, and GCP are the leading cloud platforms for IoT implementations.

To learn more about how each player in the IoT ecosystem can use the survey results to drive IoT adoption, read this blog by Eclipse Foundation Executive Director, Mike Milinkovich.
