The boom of cloud technologies and cloud data storage has been a forerunner and enabler to the growth of Big Data. These technologies have substantial advantages over conventional physical deployments. However, better performance and efficiency of data analysis require a clear distinction of the boundaries between the private clouds, public clouds, and Internet of Things (IoT). A common approach to tackle this issue is to develop Big Data in the Cloud to deliver everything as a Service. The projects in this domain regularly exhibit unpredictable, bursting, or immense computing power and storage needs. At the same time, the stakeholders expect swift, inexpensive, and dependable products and project outcomes. The main objective of this special issue is to assort these challenges into different categories and seek the best articles, demonstrations, recommendations and solutions in the following areas:
Innovative Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data
Mobile-Driven Cloud Computing
Scientific Computing, Data Management and Analytics in Cloud
Big Data and Cloud for Enterprise, Government and Society
Big Data for Cloud-assisted, IoT-based Cyber-Physical Systems
Big Data and Cloud for Improving Resilient Infrastructure
Automatic Business Process and Workflow Management in Clouds
Multimedia Applications in Mobile Cloud Environments
Big Data and Cloud Research and Project Experience in Biomedical, Energy and Environment Control, Service Systems in Tourism, Transportation and Urban Planning, Vertical Markets – Telecom, Sensors, Social Networking, Smart Cities, Food and Agriculture.
Case Studies of Big Data Value Creation
