Abstract: The Internet of Things is a new technological paradigm that aims to connect anything and anyone at any time and any place, giving rise to innovative new applications and services. In doing so, it offers a number of opportunities and challenges that users and organisations need to tackle. In this paper we systematically review the business literature related to the Internet of Things and provide a critical account of the latest state of play. More specifically, we adopt two perspectives: that of the user and that of the organisation. After outlining the methodological approach adopted, we consider the definitions of the Internet of Things. Then, in turn, we discuss the relevant business literature from each perspective. The paper concludes with a synthesis of the emerging themes and potential avenues for future research.
