Abstract:- IOT technology will allow big data structures to evolve from static off line repositories of digital knowledge to on-line representations of our current world. IOT will allow the techniques used with big data to identify trends and forecast future to become operationally enabled data structures that allow us to manage our digital environment for maximal advantage. The road to this reality has several hurdles that must first be overcome. Among these hurdles are trust, privacy, discovery, and behavioral economics. These issues will be discussed in the context of a large city operations network and potential options to overcome these hurdles will be offered.
