Big Data In Smart Cities

With the continuing trend of the connected world and requisite big data needs comes big challenges and even bigger opportunities. City, Local, and State governments are trying to figure out how to manage the infrastructure for connected technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT).

As technology is progressing, mobility is growing exponentially. In 2015, It was estimated that there were 7.5 billion mobile devices in the world and approximately 175 billion downloaded apps. This does not include 22 billion IoT devices that are expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020.
