Big data management and analytics, in the context of IoT (Internet of Things)-enabled smart buildings, is a challenging task. It is a diffused and complex area of knowledge due to the diversity of IoT devices and the nature of data generated by the IoT devices. Many international bodies have developed metamodels for IoT-enabled ecosystems to allow knowledge sharing. However, these are often narrow in focus and deal with only the IoT aspects without taking into account the management and

Hence, in this paper we propose a metamodel for the Integrated Big Data Management and Analytics (IBDMA) framework for IoT-enabled smart buildings. The IBDMA Metamodel can be used to facilitate interoperability between existing big data management and analytics ecosystems deployed in smart buildings or other smart environments. We import the metamodel into a knowledge graph management tool and by considering a case study we validate the metamodel using this tool. The evaluation results demonstrate that IBDMA Metamodel is indeed suitable for its intended purpose.
