Abstract - Middle East, Turkey, and Africa IoT Trends, 2017 | Research | IDC CEMA


This IDC Market Perspective provides IDC's view of the predictions that will shape the IoT market in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region over the next year.

"In 2017, innovation will take center stage in the IoT space, particularly as the Middle East market starts to rebound. Operators will begin to focus on enhancing existing IoT platforms to reduce the time to market of new solutions. Operators will also realize the importance of such IoT platforms, forcing some to develop their own. Finally, operators may start to release APIs of their IoT platforms to third parties and developer communities to increase innovation and accelerate the development of IoT solutions in the market." — Paul Black, Director of Telecoms and IoT, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
