Internet of Things (IoT) as an emerging technology in the field of Information and Communication Technology is the next revolution related to the Internet application. IoT focuses on the communication of things such as sensors, drivers, devices, etc., with data collection capability controlling remote communication rather than focusing on the communication between people. Development of smart solutions and new technologies of IoT in agriculture can pave the way to a new paradigm of farming called “Smart Agriculture” by making a fundamental change in all aspects of current practices. IoT-based Smart Agriculture can improve agricultural productivity with more food production through the optimal utilization of the basic resources, minimizing environmental impacts, reducing the costs, and increasing the incomes with linking to the business market that facilitates sustainable agricultural development goals. IoT-based data is a collection of large data called “Big Data” that cannot be processed and managed by traditional databases and conventional management tools. IoT and Big Data technologies are interconnected and it can be predicted that the future of optimal agriculture in the world would not be possible to meet the food demand and sustainability of production without these technologies and Smart Agriculture. This article introduces IoT and Big Data technologies, as well as the relationship between them from the vision of Smart Agriculture. Moreover, the article aims to assist in the decision-making of the strategy from the pre-production stage to the business marketing in the country by assessing life cycle and technology trends. Some of the big IoT data applications in the Smart Agriculture cycle are also introduced.
