SPECIAL ISSUE ON: Technology and Innovation in Managing Information and Data in the Global Context


Guest Editor: Dr. Zakariya Belkhamza


The analysis of large data sets—so called big data—in a competitive global environment is becoming a key basis of underpinning new waves of productivity growth and innovation. Data now have reached every sector in the global industries. Organization and business leaders across all industries are looking for opportunities to minimize costs, increase efficiencies and gain competitive advantage in managing information and data. They are also focusing on IT as a way to accomplish these goals. The increasing volume and detail of information and data captured by enterprises will synergize exponential growth in data for the foreseeable future. Responding to this emerging issue, many companies are introducing new technologies designed to help businesses and governments tackle big data by making it simpler and more economical to analyze massive amounts of data. For this, organizations are required not only to attract the right talent and technology but also structure incentives in order to optimize the management of data. We can clearly see that the possibilities of big data continue to evolve, driven by the recent advancement in the underlying technologies, platforms, and capabilities of handling data. The question that arise is how to best get the value


This special issue seeks to expand and incorporate various research approaches and methodologies on how technology and innovation of data can create value and leverage data-driven strategies to innovate, compete, and capture value from deep and up-to-real-time information in a global context. We also aim to attract several issues that directly capture the full potential of big data globally such as policies related to security, privacy and intellectual property. We particularly focus on the impact of both technology and innovation in the way we manage data and extract the business value in the global context.


Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

• Big data and product lifecycle management
• Big data and visualization
• Big data in public sector administration
• Big data techniques and technologies
• Handling data for experimentation to discover needs, expose variability, and improve performance
• Impact of organizational, cultural, and talent challenges to maximize the benefits of big data
• Innovating new business models, products, and services
• Manufacturers use of big data across the value chain
• Mapping global data for business innovation
• Role of big data in business value creation
• Supporting human decision making with emerging technologies
• Transformative potential of big data in the global context
• Use of recent technologies and techniques to capture business value from big data
• Using big data to generate innovative ways of productivity and growth
