Big Data, IoT and Cloud Computing for Smart system

In recent years the combination of three distinct disciplines such as Big data, Internet of Things (IoT), and Cloud Computing are becoming more interdependent to each other in day to day activities of our lives. These technologies are advanced forms of sensors and data processing solutions. Here, IoT is a connection of multiple devices or network of devices which can collect and transfer data between them. Since IoT generates a huge amount of data from several connected devices, to manage the data complexities big data-based ecosystem can be utilized. Whether the data is organized or unorganized, the huge volumes of streaming or static data can be processed using big data techniques. Furthermore, to increase the computing capacity of this complex data rapidly, the use of cloud computing comes into the picture; it can store, process, and analyze huge volumes of data with an added advantage of sharing and accessing the information more securely from anywhere across the globe.

When Big Data, IoT and Cloud Computing is used as an integrated concept in building a smart environment, a rapid increase in the overall efficiency of the existing system can be achieved. This happens due to the several devices and applications such as processors, sensors, actuators, gateways, cloud services, analytical tools, etc. work together from sensing the data to process and analyzing the sensed data into insightful measurement data. The transformation of product-oriented outcomes into information-based outcomes can be achieved by using the BIC measurement system. Recently, most of the organizations are trying to extract maximum values by utilizing their humungous amount of data collected through various applications and sensors. Here, the implementation of BIC based concept can explore new opportunities and possibilities that will revolutionize the existing business circumstances. Also, using the BIC related measurement system, the integration and automation of many functions will be simpler and less reliant. Some of the fields like agriculture, healthcare, education, transport, manufacturing, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and many more can be explored by using BIC based system for building a smart connected environment with increased information intelligence and optimized decision-making possibilities.

Since information and communication technologies are becoming a necessity in both urban and rural environments, to achieve a smart and sustainable social and economic development in various departments, the appropriate utilization of Big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud computing is very important. However, there may be many challenges and risks related to security, safety, and other technical aspects while implementing a BIC based measurement system in a smart environment. By addressing all the potential threats carefully, a smart future can build successfully.
