Adopting the internet of things (IoT) model for dynamic information systems (DIS) requires careful and comprehensive understanding of the technology, opportunities and challenges that may be encountered. IoT can be sought as an enabler and promoter for interactive and dynamic services for businesses. This paper explores and discusses IoT and its relevance to DIS. It explores such technology as a pivotal component of the next generation DIS that requires full understanding, looking at possible opportunities and challenges that may be encountered. The paper views IoT in the larger context of DIS through proposing an IoT-DIS conceptual model, so that influencing factors can better be recognised. It concludes with a reflection on IoT future directions and research.
