With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

Present day Internet of Things (IoT) developers are inspired by the spectacular evolution in the field, and, at the same time, determined to connect an increasingly wider range of 'things', with the lowest power consumption, the wider range of action and interoperability guaranteed with excessive quality. Based on current challenges in the medical and electronic field, the present paper seeks the practical implementation of an efficient, low cost, low-power IoT medical system, yet with a greater memory autonomy. In this context, our main contribution is the implementation of a solution for ECG monitoring based on IoT techniques. This paper presents a qualitative research in the field of healthcare IoT and embedded applications meant to provide an innovative and flexible system meeting the stringent requirements of this area. Without compromising the performance intake and the low power consumption, the designers offer flexible options for connectivity and response time.
