The invention discloses an implementation platform arrangement for the implementation of an IoT (Internet of Things), includes a control system; and an associated framework adapted to offer a powerful, transparent integration platform having integration surfaces or layers, with real-time, in-line analytical structures. Data is assimilated via the integration surfaces or layers in real-time and analyzed for operational payload thereby providing a result. The result determines a response from the control system resulting in influence in the physical or virtual environment through the arrangement's integration surface or layer. The result is a set of basic devices achieving a complex and sophisticated value offering without the addition of any augmenting circuitry or systems. The arrangement is adapted to support the use of IoT definitions through the implementation of specific system features.
