Towards merging internet of things (IoT) and big data technologies to benefit wider applications
The development of Internet of Things (IoT) makes the life of human being very smooth and easier. IoT provides a tool to control electronic devices in a bit. IoT is actually the network of devices that contain sensors, electronics, softwares, actuators, and connectivity which allows these things to connect, interact and exchange data among each other. IoT made easier to control the devices, collect the information from such devices, manage such information and transfer this information to analyze the same and to predict or prescribe the solution for the problems might exist. Big data image came from the huge quantity of collected data from IoT devices through the sensors. It is not just that there is the only interdependent relation between big data and IoT. As they help each other, in addition to that they hugely impact each other. The fact is, the more the IoT grows it will place more demand on businesses of big data. For example, as the IoT generated data is increasing at a huge rate, conventional data storage technology is already being pushed to its limits. As a result, it demands more advanced and innovative storage solutions to handle these growing workloads resulting in updating the infrastructure of an organization’s big data storage. Similarly, the IoT big data combined applications accelerate the scope of research in both the fields. So, IoT and big data both the technologies carry interdependency and need further development.

Problem solution strategy for peatland rehabilitation
Currently, assessments of carbon dioxide emissions produced by rehabilitated plants and planted areas are rarely carried out, especially as a consideration in the implementation of peatland rehabilitation. In addition to measuring subsidence and peat hydrology studies, one method for assessing the condition of peatlands is by measuring carbon dioxide emissions. The success of peatland rehabilitation is indicated by the percentage of life and the rate of plant growth. Peat soils with different thicknesses produce different conditions and characteristics of peat soil so that the resulting plant growth rate can vary. Therefore, rehabilitation activities must be supported by efforts to prepare quality plant seedlings to have better adaptability and environmental manipulation techniques created by studying environmental conditions including evaluation of planting results and previous rehabilitation efforts. Therefore, this paper specifically describes the strategy for solving the problem of peatland rehabilitation.

Balangeran plant (Shorea balangeran) to capture carbon dioxide emissions from peatlands
Greenhouse gases are released from peatlands in the form of CO2, CH4, and N2O. Of the three gases, CO2 is the most important GHG because of its relatively large amount, especially from peatland which has changed its function from forest to agricultural land and settlements. Long drought results in a decrease in the water table, which in turn can accelerate CO2 emissions from peat soils. Rehabilitation of peat areas is aimed at restoring degraded peat area resources so that they function optimally in providing ecological, economic and social benefits to all interested parties, managing water resources, and developing institutions based on peat area resources. This rehabilitation action is related to planting activities aimed at restoring land cover so that the function of the peat ecosystem can recover to normal. The Balangeran plant is proposed as peat revegetation to utilize carbon dioxide emitted by the land to become biomass which is useful for various living needs.
