Global Internet of Things Development Survey 2020: Comprehensive View of Attitudes, Adoption Patterns and Intentions

The “Internet of Things Development Survey 2020, Volume 1” report has been added to’s offering.

The Internet of Things Development Survey is conducted twice a year. This comprehensive report, based on primary research with developers actively developing for connected devices and the Internet of Things, gives a comprehensive view of the attitudes, adoption patterns and intentions of these developers.

Topics include: Demographics and Firmographics, Developing and Deploying IoT Projects, IoT Technology Landscape, Business of IoT Development, IoT APIs and Services, Language Use, Platform Targets, Automotive and Connected Car Development, Wearables Development, Real-time Operating Systems, Connected Hardware Development, AI and Advanced Analytics, Cloud and Container Use, Edge Computing and IoT, Performance and Optimization, Security and Technology Adoption.

This survey gives a comprehensive view of the attitudes, adoption patterns and intentions of developers in relation to the Internet of Things. The analyst wishes to make this survey series as valuable as possible to our clients; thus, we solicit input from subscribers prior to the publication of each volume. This subscriber input is incorporated into the content of the survey, providing answers and insight into issues of interest to our clients. Publication rights to any of the results are not granted to any subscribers outside of their own companies without written permission from the analyst.

Survey Methodology

This survey series is completed entirely online. Respondents from the panel were sent invitations to participate and complete the survey online. Incentives for completing the survey are the ability to influence tool makers and receive points that build up and can be used to redeem cash cards.

Research Design

The survey research method is the basic research design. The questionnaire for this survey is constructed for developers actively involved with developing a variety of applications using a wide variety of technologies. An e-mail invitation was sent out to software developers inviting them to come to the survey site, fill out the survey online, and register for the drawing. Verbatim of any appreciable length was not used in this volume. The answers were compiled in SPSS.

Relative Rankings

In order to facilitate better at-a-glance comprehension of complex data sets, the analyst provides relative ranking tables next to summary sheets. These rankings have a numerical weighting for the various categories. For example, in a question where the possible answers are w, x, y, and z, w is multiplied by 3, x by 2, y by -2, and z by -3. The sum of these comprises the relative ranking for the category in question. The results are then sorted, from highest-ranking to lowest, to give a closer comparison. The Sample – IoT Developers This survey consists of 519 in-depth interviews conducted with English-speaking developers worldwide who work on apps that run on connected devices or the Internet of Things. This provides a margin of error of 4.2%.
