The evolution of ICT helps the organizations to step forward and generate value. In fact, Internet helps businesses to break down physical and technological limitations and establish global networks that incorporate their machinery, warehousing systems and production facilities in the shape of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). In the manufacturing environment, these CPS comprise smart machines, storage systems and production facilities capable of autonomously exchanging information, triggering actions and controlling each other independently thanks to Internet of Thing and Services (IoTS), Cloud Computing and Cognitive Computing capabilities. This paper will present a state of art of this technological evolution that can be described as new industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. Then we propose a new IoT-based Service Oriented Architecture for smart industry application, focusing on integration challenges imposed by IoT generating extreme heterogeneity and large amount of data to process.
