The data of the Public Administrations (PAs), together with technologies and platforms developed to provide services to citizens, are the basis of the PA digital heritage.

Referring to the Italian context, the Three-Year Plan for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the PA addresses the optimization of both the front-end and the back-end management in order to enable a new paradigm that (i) goes beyond the old ``silos logic'' and (ii) puts software components in common among the PAs.

In this work we present our vision and the related strategy, based on continuous queries and retention policies, resulting from the #SmartME project experience.

Specifically, we present a case study related to the use of the InfluxDB time series database at the back-end side.

The goal is to enable new opportunities for heterogeneous stakeholders (i.e., people, PA, academia, industries) to meet and define new synergies in Smart Environments.
