Big data analytics (BBA) or the“collection of data and technology that accesses, integrates, and reports all available data by filtering, correlating, and reporting insights not attainable with past data technologies” (APICS 2012), is emerging as the “next big thing” in management. Some scholars have gone so far as suggesting that BBA is the “next management revolution”(McAfee and Brynjolfsson 2012), and thus generating huge attention from both practitioners and academics. Some analysts estimate that BBA-enabled process improvement may lead to about 26% average performance improvement over a three years period (Capgemini 2012). However, very few empirical studies have been conducted to assess the real business value of BBA at the firm and supply chain levels.
The main objective of this workshop to invite scholars and practitioners to look at the ways and means to identify and capture business value from BDA in terms of innovative business models, improved decisions making, improved intra-and inter-organizational performance, and competitive advantage.
The topics to be discussed in this special issue include but are not limited to the following:
• Big data analytics enabled-business process innovation at the firm and supply chain levels
• Assessment of the effect of big data analytics on the decision-making processes in operations
• Assessment of facilitators and inhibitors of big data analytics adoption for supply chain management processes
• In-depth & longitudinal case studies and pilot studies on the implementation of IT infrastructure to support big data initiatives for improved operations management, lean & agile operations, quality management in operations and supply chain management
• Facilitation of innovative electronic business models and operations by using big data analytics in various sectors (e.g., healthcare, retail industry, and manufacturing)
• Enabling smart cities, smart organizations and smart homes using big data analytics
• New theory development to explain the adoption and use of big data in operations at the organizational and inter-organizational levels
• Challenges related to big data analytics-enabled end-to-end supply chain transformation
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for this special thematic issue on “Big Data Analytics and Business Process Innovation” on or before November 30, 2015. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication.
