CALL FOR PAPERS: 20th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2012), Track: "Business Intelligence and Knowledge Management", Barcelona June 10-13, 2012
ECIS is considered the premier information systems event in the European region and provides a platform for panel discussions and the presentation of peer-reviewed academic research.
Mon, 5 Sep 2011 -- Business intelligence (BI) and knowledge management (KM) contribute significantly to an organisation's competitiveness and sustainable development. Both domains provide means to leverage organisational information and knowledge assets for efficient and effective decision making. The underlying BI and KM agendas are nothing less than to deliver decision support for sustainable economic development, which is an important prerequisite for the global welfare. In order to provide enduring value, the decision makers must rely on consolidated and high-quality information as well as on a current and context-rich knowledge base that are correlated with the organisational setting and environment.
Consequently, BI and KM meanwhile represent an essential component of the enterprise application landscape. BI is a broad category of technologies, applications, and processes to support data analysis and decision making in organisations and across organisational boundaries. Complementary, KM focuses on capturing the right knowledge, providing it to the right user, and using this knowledge to improve organisational and/or individual performance. Although addressed by research for a long time, both domains are still evolving. For example, new applications, innovative technologies, and increasing maturity of BI and KM solutions demand for adequate methodological and technical advice as well as for the performance measurement of organisational application.
This track aims to promote contributions dealing with a managerial, an economic, a methodological or a technical perspective on BI and KM. Submissions based on theoretical research, design research, action research, or behavioural research are encouraged. We welcome both full research papers and research in progress papers.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Support for mature BI and KM solutions: BI/KM governance, BI/KM strategies, BI/KM maturity models, BI/KM success factors, and BI/KM performance
Emerging trends in BI: pervasive BI, BI 2.0 (social media and BI), and mobile BI
Real time data warehousing und operational BI
Applications of BI, such as customer relationship management and business performance management
Data warehousing and data integration
Predictive and advanced analytics, and data visualisation
Data, text and web mining for BI
