Conference theme: Smart Business Ecosystems

No business is an island and competition is increasingly taking place between business networks and no longer between individual companies. Information technology has been an important enabler with systems for enterprise resource planning, business intelligence or business process management. Driven by new internet-based technologies, such as cloud, mobile, social and ubiquitous computing as well as analytics and big data, so-called smart infrastructures are emerging. From the business side, they are conducive to new, more dynamic relationships between companies, suppliers and customers, which have referred to as ecosystems. Resources are crowdsourced as services via platforms that yield new business knowledge and business processes. A variety of aspects is relevant for designing and understanding smart business ecosystems. They reach from new business models, value chains and processes to all aspects of analytical, social and enterprise applications and platforms as well as cyber-physical infrastructures.
