AWS IoT Roadmap

Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:invent 2017 is a leading industry event that should not be mistaken for your typical Internet of Things (IoT) event. Last week thousands of attendees came together in Las Vegas, Nevada to listen to a diverse selection of speakers from different IoT spaces across the globe, to attend unique networking opportunities, and to gain new insight into the IoT world. In a recent article, “CEO Andy Jassey reveals AWS’ plans for the IoT” Digi Chief Product Officer and VP of Product, Scott Nelson, explains the array of new services that will be introduced into the AWS ecosystem in the near future.

The keynote session was broken down into segments represented by iconic music artists such as Lauryn Hill, Eric Clapton, and Tom Petty. The AWS IoT strategy includes the following features:

  1. Getting into the game
  2. Device management
  3. Security
  4. Analytics
  5. Smaller devices
  6. Machine Learning
