The success of the IoT world requires service provision attributed with ubiquity, reliability, high-performance, efficiency, scalability. In order to accomplish this attribution it is possible to merge the Cloud Computing and IoT concepts by combining global and local clouds, security gateways, communication interfaces, storage units and applications for the realization of an intelligent Knowledge-as-a-Service (iKaaS) platform. The introduction of cognition was the first step for the IoT success, as it brought essential self-management/ awareness and knowledge-management functionality. iKaaS will proceed to the next/vital step for the IoT success and for new business value propositions for the IoT world combined with cloud principles.
