This Topical Collection on innovative people-centered solutions in industry has the goal of disseminating works following the IO paradigm. The IO paradigm means the application of people-centered technological innovation to industry or to a societal area. It represents innovation (I) on (O) the use of technologies able to solve specific issues/concerns of citizens, business or society. This paradigm was created by a technological start-up, IOTECH—Innovation on Technology. IOTech (https://iotech.pt) researches and develops pervasive, innovative and intelligent web/mobile solutions to address the concerns of industry, business, citizens and society.
The paradigm is materialised in an artefact, typical an ioSolution through the application of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) concept. The artefact must be responsive and allow the operation of services, and the resolution of real problems of the industry without it being necessary to buy new equipment. The user can consume a set of services through their own device (mobile phone, tablet, computer, television, among others).
The ioSolution must be pervasive, innovative and use concepts associated with machine-learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality, enabling the development of smart progressive web apps.
This Topical Collection intends to link researchers and professionals able to explore new solutions applied to society and industry. It will further explore and present paradigms, solutions or best practices able to be implemented in the real world. It represents a new era of disseminating knowledge by showing how scientific knowledge can be transferred to society and applied in industry.
In order to contribute to addressing this paradigm, this Topical Collection intends to collect the current developments and future directions of people-centered solutions applied to industry. Hence, we encourage authors to submit original papers related to these fields and disseminate their knowledge to society. All the articles must be people-centered and/or focus on industry.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Internet of Things
- Progressive web app
- Pervasive and cloud computing
- Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning
- Web/mobile solutions
- Big data, open data and analytical tools
- Smart cities
- Wellbeing solutions
- Smart solutions
- Augmented reality
- System interoperability
- System and applications security
- Industry 4.0

Title: Internet of Services-based business models: A Systematic Literature Review
Abstract: The relevance of the Internet of Services (IoS) comes from the global reach of the Internet into everyone´s home and daily activities and from the move from a manufacturing-based economy to a service-based economy. The IoS is seen as a new ecosystem where service providers and consumers explore their business networks for service provision and consumption. The scientific literature refers to IoS as an important cornerstone for Industry 4.0 and Future Internet; thus, it becomes relevant to study how IoS interacts with business models. Nevertheless, there is a lack of clarity on such an intersection. Moreover, a systematic review of Internet of Services-based business models is still missing. This paper aims to review current studies and highlight state-of-the-art for IoS, identifying which have been business application fields through an interlocking analysis between IoS and business models. Twenty-three different studies are presented, examining the problem they address and proposed solutions. Concluding, the review highlights the opportunities of IoS applications in different fields, offering directions for future research on this new arena.
