Smart cities provide a plethora of data of different kinds that need to be acquired, integrated and processed in order to develop intelligent services for the different actors of the city (municipalities, citizens, students, entrepreneurships, and researchers). Cloud-based solutions that are open-source and exploit open-standards for the management of the city data are considered prominent in order to face the scalability, maintainability and financial issues of small and large cities around the world. In this course we will discuss the infrastructures required for the management and the analysis of smart city data (stored, streams, etc.) of big size and provide insight in the current solutions for the visual development of IoT applications, dashboards, and for extracting knowledge. The experiences that we have gained in participating in several European projects will be presented along with new research directions in the field.
