The Evolving Connected Device Universe: 12 Technology Innovations for 2015
December 16 2014
Boston, MA – The connected device universe is evolving. From domestic appliances to wearable technology to smart home solutions, the number of things that can be monitored, controlled and analysed by the consumer will grow significantly in 2015. Creating compelling, manageable and useable consumer experiences to seamlessly integrate all this data, while ensuring privacy and security, will be critical to success. A new complementary insights report, “UX Innovation Trends for 2015: Addressing Consumer Needs in the Evolving Connected Device Universe” from the User Experience Innovation Practice (UXIP) at Strategy Analytics summarizes the top 12 technology UX predictions for 2015.
"In 2015, consumers will own more connected products and technologies than ever before. New personal devices, as well as smart home and connected car solutions, will create a tsunami of personal data" commented Paul Brown, Director, UXIP. "As technology evolves, new user experience approaches will need to be defined to address this issue. It remains to be seen whether one device will control and manage all this information. Single app solutions for each ‘thing’ may be great in the short term, but for long term persistent use, the consumer may actually end up ‘drowning’ in an unmanageable user interface".
