Aims and Scope

The conference is devoted to discussion of current research and applications regarding the basic directions of business informatics: e-management and business intelligence.

E-Management for E-businesses. The development of e-business systems will dominate the enterprise IT agenda, and be incorporated into the entire business process—from advertising and marketing, through to sales, ordering, manufacturing, distribution, customer service, after-sales support and replenishment of inventory. What is e-business? Simply put, it is the application of electronic technologies to streamline business interactions, both internally and with customers, suppliers and partners. It requires rethinking virtually everything an organization does — financing, recruiting, employee relations and, inevitably, IT services.

And because their customers will be affected by e-business, so will the management software industry. Indeed, unless the vendors adopt e-business practices, they run the risk of falling behind and eventually being replaced by a new wave. At a minimum, the management software industry will have to make more effective use of their websites, a point some vendors already recognize. For example, Network Associates, INS (now part of Lucent) and Cisco offer customers the ability to purchase and directly download software via the Web. This will become a standard offering within the industry over the next two years.

Business intelligence (BI) has two basic different meanings related to the use of the term “intelligence”.

The primary, less frequently, is the human intelligence capacity applied in business affairs/activities. “Intelligence of Business” is a new field of the investigation of the application of human cognitive faculties and artificial intelligence technologies to the management and decision support in different business problems.

The second relates to the intelligence as information valued for its currency and relevance. It is expert information, knowledge and technologies efficient in the management of organizational and individual business. Therefore, in this sense, business intelligence is a broad category of applications and technologies for gathering, providing access to, and analyzing data for the purpose of helping enterprise users make better business decisions. The term implies having a comprehensive knowledge of all of the factors that affect your business. It is imperative that you have an in depth knowledge about factors such as your customers, competitors, business partners, economic environment, and internal operations to make effective and good quality business decisions. Business intelligence enables you to make these kinds of decisions.

A specialized field of business intelligence known as “competitive intelligence” focuses solely on the external competitive environment. Information is gathered on the actions of competitors and decisions are made based on this information.
