Today, the Internet of Things has evolved due to an advanced interconnectivity of hardware devices equipped with sensors and actuators. Such connected environments are nowadays well-known as smart environments. Famous examples are smart homes, smart cities, and smart factories. Such environments should only be called “smart” if they allow monitoring and(More)
Nowadays, the amount of data increases tremendously. Extracting information and generating knowledge from this data is a great challenge. To cope with this issue – oftentimes referred to as big data problem – we need effective means for efficient data integration, data processing, and data analysis. To enable flexible, explorative and ad-hoc data(More)
