CNews: How IoT is changing the world

Internet of things is more than a technological phenomenon. Today it is the niche showing exponential growth where, according to experts, Russia has big prospects. According to Ivan Fil, the Chief Innovation Officer of INTECH, modern technologies can cope with large-scale distribution of IoT technologies without breakthrough innovations like quantum computers. "In the world the share of the market of hardware solutions reduced from 65% to 50% during 2014-2019, and in Russia — from 70% to 60%. Recession happens first of all due to lowering in price of hardware solutions while the number of applications and platforms is growing, — Ivan Fil noted. In my opinion, Russia has a potential for creation of competitive products in all IoT segments and it is time for us to start creation of the international technological brands in this area".
