IoT has not fully diffused in Africa to address various challenges faced by African people. To address the emergence and pervasiveness of IoT in Africa, we present an open IoT, and big data platform as an innovation platform to accelerate innovations in rural Africa. However, the technology is not dedicated to the rural cases; it is designed for any IoT application. The platform will allow to develop IoT applications coupled with Big Data capacities. Moreover, the platform can be tailored to the specific requirements and constraints of African users. In this paper, we give an overview of the proposed IoT and Big Data platform, detail its technical aspects, and finally introduce three use case deployments to prove the validity of platform architecture.
