Introduction
Cloud computing and the big-data analytics are the two new technologies that are evolving across the globe. IT organizations are moving towards the concept of seamless computing, and real-time processing of data with high degree of resource scalability. Moreover, cloud technology is continuously improving in security and data integration techniques. Business organizations are more concerned with the growing scope of data 
analytics, rather than selective storing of data from diverse resources. Thus, big-data and cloud technologies go hand-in-hand and as a result, most of the organizations are inclining towards cloud delivery models, in addition with the support of big-data analytics, especially for mission-critical workloads.

The collaboration of these two technologies enable the scope of another emerging technology – the Internet-of-Things (IoT). With the help of cloud and big-data networking, today it is possible to envision pervasive connectivity, storage, and computation, which, in turn, gives rise to different IoT solutions from environmental sensing to public safety. IoT-based applications such as innovative shopping system, infrastructure management in both urban and rural areas, remote health monitoring and emergency notification systems, and transportation systems, are gradually realizing the long-awaited dream of smart-cities. Hence, proper focus on Internet-of-Things, with the assistance of cloud and big-data technology, is of utmost importance in today's modern world.
