The recent evolution of the Internet of Things into a cyber-physical reality has spawned various challenges from a data management perspective. In addition, IoT platform designers are faced with another set of questions. How can platforms be extended to smoothly integrate new data management functionalities? Currently, data processing related tasks are typically realized by manually developed code and functions which creates difficulties in maintenance and growth. Hence we need to explore other approaches to integration for IoT platforms. In this paper we cover both these aspects: (1) we explore several emerging data management challenges, and (2) we propose an IoT platform integration model that can combine disparate functionalities under one roof. For the first, we focus on the following challenges: sensor data quality, privacy in data streams, machine learning model management, and resource-aware data management. For the second, we propose an information-integration model for IoT platforms. The model revolves around the concept of a Data-Sharing Market where data management functionalities can share and exchange information about their data with other functionalities. In addition, data-sharing markets themselves can be combined into networks of markets where information flows from one market to another, which creates a web of information exchange about data resources. To motivate this work we present a use-case application in smart cities.
