IoT is a networking paradigm where interconnected, smart objects continuously generate data and transmit it over the Internet.
However, the solutions to manage and utilize the massive volume of data produced by these objects are yet to mature. Traditional database management solutions fall short in satisfying the sophisticated application needs of an IoT network that has a truly global-scale.
Current solutions for IoT data management address partial aspects of the IoT environment with special focus on sensor networks.
We need to highlight the distinctive design primitives that should be addressed in an IoT data management solution, and discuss how they are approached by the proposed solutions.
We finally propose a data management framework for IoT that takes into consideration the discussed design elements and acts as a seed to a comprehensive IoT data management solution.
