The 2020 IoT Developer Survey Goes to the Edge

leave a comment »

Our 2020 IoT Developer Survey is open until June 26, and for the first time, the survey includes questions about how developers are incorporating edge computing technologies into their IoT solutions.

With your input, everyone in the IoT ecosystem — original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), software vendors, hardware manufacturers, service providers, enterprises of all sizes, and individual developers — will have a better understanding of the latest IoT solutions and service development trends and how these trends impact their strategies and businesses.

Completing the survey also gives you a unique opportunity to influence the roadmaps of the Eclipse IoT Working Group and the Eclipse Edge Native Working Group. IoT and edge technologies are intrinsically intertwined, and your choices for development tools, architectures, deployment technologies, security, connectivity, and other aspects will help ensure our working groups continue to focus on your top priorities and requirements for cloud-to-edge IoT solution development.

This is the sixth year for the IoT Developer Survey, and every year the survey results provide valuable insight into the requirements, priorities, and perceptions in active IoT developer communities. In 2019, we received more than 1,700 survey responses, including more than 1,100 responses from developers who were working on IoT projects in a professional capacity — a clear indication the IoT ecosystem recognizes the value of the survey results.

With your input, we were able to identify relevant IoT technologies, leading architectures, applications, and standards on a global scale. The 2019 survey also revealed that IoT development is expanding at a rapid pace, fueled predominantly by increasing investments in industrial markets. The results highlighted developers’ focus on IoT platforms, home automation, and industrial automation.

The IoT Developer Survey is distinct from, but complementary to, our IoT Commercial Adoption Survey. The IoT Commercial Adoption Survey goes beyond the developer perspective to find out what organizations are doing with IoT and their plans for production deployments. With the results from this survey, stakeholders including software vendors, IoT platform vendors, IoT solution providers, and manufacturing organizations gain critical insight into the right next steps for their businesses.

Take a Few Minutes to Complete the IoT Developer Survey

The IoT Developer Survey is the IoT industry’s largest developer survey and I encourage all developers in the IoT ecosystem to add their voice. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
