The dawn of the fourth industrial revolution motivates the unveiling of new business models and technological selections, to enable enterprises to operate efficiently. The vision of digitization and intelligent or smart technique to organize future industrial operations is a compelling issue to address. Deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) concepts relies on the robustness of innovative functionalities available to drive industrial processes. i.e., improvement in industrial operational performance is not far-fetched from the urgency to gain an understanding of IoT architecture and protocols for applicability. The present study is an exploratory research into the most recent cloud computing services and IoT technologies to proffer knowledge on their potentials and analyze their applications from an industrial perspective to promote sustainable operations. This article covers the general requirement for the success of a digitization trend in the industrial sector and considers state-of-the-art technological intervention towards cloud computing advancement to promote IoT services. Industrial systems enabled with IoT should improve operations and transform businesses in the future. Industries today should convert IoT data into valuable information to aid the increase of sustainable and conservative practices, this would enable the provision of better solutions leading to organizational effectiveness. This present study is a contribution to the body of literature on the subject matter.
