For several years, the 21st century has seen a global shift toward concentrated population in a select few metropolitan cities. However, being a larger and more crowded city has certain advantages, such as being more productive, innovative, and taking progressive environmental action. Additionally, major cities present many positives, such as development, traffic congestion, garbage management, access to resources, and negatives, such as unregulated growth, worsened traffic, garbage collection issues, and limits on resources. Conversely, the global economy has increased connectivity between cities worldwide in hitherto unseen ways of competitiveness. Experiments in urban infrastructure and services, usually referred to as Smart Cities, are related to difficulties. A number of these methods could be used in the future to address new information technology jobs. The smart city concept revolves around organizational structures and urban life in a new form that is expected to shift production and consumption from the global to the local, with business remaining with multi-stakeholder shareholders. One of the critical problems in these new cities is implementing information technology, especially the internet of things. Through a bibliometric examination of studies published in SCOPUS and Web of Science on the ideas of smart cities and the internet of things, this research uncovered some insights about the academic climate in the field. For example, the field's active actors (writers, institutions, and countries, for example) were identified, and their contributions were attempted to be exposed. Among the research findings is a content analysis of terms used in related studies and the evolution and interplay of concepts across time. This study has presented an overview of the field and several predictions about the possible directions it will go in the future.
