Whenever the Internet of Things (IoT) is discussed, two camps emerge in the industry: optimists and pessimists. The latter identifies the Internet of Things as a “future” technology. Personally, I am a staunch optimist: I am extremely excited about the transformative innovations that IoT solutions are expected to bring, but at the same time, I remain cautiously optimistic. After all, the rise of any emerging technology will face many challenges.
For Arm®, as we continue to launch a number of targeted solutions, IP and other technologies, we not only provide strong support to innovators, but also always ensure that we are at the forefront of the market, leading trends and Meet the challenge. That’s why we conducted a survey of IoT practitioners across the global ecosystem, including developers, engineers, startups, and established silicon partners, software providers, OEMs, and other partners , aimed at understanding the challenges they currently face.
Looking at the results of the survey on the positive side, respondents believe that the consumer market, cloud/data centers and smart cities are leading the development of the Internet of Things, with 5G technology, cloud native development and machine learning driving the implementation of solutions. Key factor. Respondents expressed excitement about the Internet of Things (IoT) making it possible to collect vast amounts of new data, effectively analyze it, and use the results to improve business performance and customer experience.
But they also see some problems. Two factors stand in the way of realizing a transformative vision: long and complex development cycles and the portability of migrating software to new hardware. For interviewees, development efficiency can be improved by using tools such as Arm Virtual Hardware. Developers do not need to wait for the hardware to be ready, and can carry out software development ideas in a virtual hardware environment in advance. Run and test. Additionally, respondents recognized the value that the Arm ecosystem brings to simplifying software porting for efficient, large-scale development.
The software compatibility issue also deserves attention. Developers agree that developing IoT products on a unified architecture can achieve high efficiency and scalability in software development. In addition, key considerations such as software reuse, cost reduction and improving the learning efficiency of the development team can also be solved by using a unified architecture.
In addition to the above issues, the survey results also show that the biggest challenge facing the IoT business is security issues throughout the entire development and life cycle of the product. Respondents said that improving security from design to deployment and into use is critical, and their partners and customers are asking for security enhancements.
Other challenges include the slowdown in the globalization of supply chains, the introduction of new laws and regulations, lack of timely access to the latest hardware and IoT technologies, and the lack of certification and standardization initiatives to enhance security.
There is no doubt that the IoT industry is at a turning point. Arm's survey report provides valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities faced in the development of the Internet of Things, and also reflects that innovators have always maintained a positive and optimistic attitude towards the development of the Internet of Things in the next few years. From SoC architects to OEMs, from engineers to software developers, from startups to established vendors, all vertical industries and their practitioners see huge opportunities in IoT. Many needs and pain points such as accelerating development, improving efficiency to achieve faster product launch, and providing strong support to business decision-makers based on more data are all reflected in this survey report. Arm has always believed that IoT applications have huge potential to change the world, and only by understanding the opportunities and challenges can we get twice the result with half the effort.
