Cloud Services or Cloud-based IoT environment brings together the capabilities of cloud computing processes and IoT devices functionalities as an end-to-end service. It uses big data processing and complex machine learning methods integrated with IoT data centers, for the exact data extraction process. Such incorporation of Cloud and IoT environments provides great strategies to the users in almost all fields. It helps in understanding the environmental conditions, user behavior, and usage patterns of a customer, identifying design errors, field tests for a product, and also in customer-centric personalization of a product to increase its value in the market.

Data collected from IoT sensors grows exponentially in volume which leads to another important issue called data gravity. Large data volumes can even attract cybercriminals. So, all the critical data needs to be handled in an extremely careful way where data privacy issues make headlines. Different secure ways in sharing and optimization of the gathered data need to be explored. So, to implement IoT solutions in a safe, secure, and effective manner, all business leaders who work in a cloud-based IoT environment need to create an IoT data management strategy.

There are several design primitives that determine the logical and physical structure of data management solutions for IoT. Data collection which targets the discovery and identification of actual data, data management which deals with storing and archiving data, and processing of stored data are essential in building a comprehensive IoT data management solution. Invariable machine to machine communication and its interactivity, systematic ways of power usage in information transmittal and managing, big data received from many devices, security and privacy, methods to integrate information from other devices, estimation and levying, internetworking between devices, infrastructure, and resources for successful IoT data management, minimal storage requirements, etc. are the major challenges and issues in IoT and cloud integration process.

This Special Issue focuses on novel developments, technologies, and challenges related to the efficient and innovative cloud-based IoT Environment for data management. We are particularly interested in the latest findings from research, ongoing projects, and review articles that can provide readers with current research trends and solutions.
