The Internet of Things (IoT) connects physical world to the cyber-world, which may impose predicable and unpredictable changes to enterprise business models and our everyday life. In this paper, we propose a model to describe the impact of IoT on the material, information and capital flowas well as carbon footprint through the supply chain, and further support the model with possible business scenarios. Besides, we raise several issues that may interest scholars and practitioners.
