Abstract: We investigate the emerging meanings of “v alue ” associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). Given the current political economy, we argue that the multiple meaning s of “ v alue ” cannot be reduced to a single domain or discipline, but rather that they are invariab ly articulated at the juxtaposition of three domains : social, economic, and technical. We analyse each of these domains and present domain challenges and cross - domain implications – drawing from an interdisciplinary literature review and gap analy sis across sources from academia, business, and governments. We propose a functional model that aggregate s these findings into a value - driven logic of the emerging global political economy enabled by digital technology in general and IoT in particular . Tho se conceptual contributions highlight the critical need for an interdisciplinary u n derstanding of the meaning of “v alue , ” so that IoT services and products will create and sustain such concurrent meanings during their entire lifecycle, from design to consumption and retirement or recycling.
