Track Description:

The Business Intelligence and Knowledge Management (BI/KM) track aims to
attract novel research on technologies, applications, and processes for
gathering, storing, accessing, analyzing, and presenting data, information
and knowledge for informed managerial decisions and organizational

In addition to the plethora of applications that are already available for
data mining and business intelligence, newer technologies such as web 2.0
and social networking environments bring in novel managerial and technical
challenges related to analyzing large volumes of data. Knowledge management
also encompasses knowledge that exists in unstructured forms and that
intersects with technology, processes and people. The result is not only
technical, but also business and management challenges that include
economic, strategic, and behavioral issues. This research track aims to
promote forward- thinking research in theoretical, design science, and
behavioral aspects of BI/KM/DSS/Analytics.

This track has consistently taken place in the AMCIS program with varying
combinations of BI/KM related topics such as data warehousing, text mining
and data visualization. The track has evolved over time as there are changes
in the available technologies and related issues in the domain.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
.	Data/Text/Web mining
.	Online analytical processing (modeling)
.	Master Data Management (MDM)
.	Data integration management (such as ETL, EAI, EII, SOA)
.	Social media and Web 2.0 analytics
.	Pervasive and real-time BI
.	Data warehouse or data mart design (conceptual, logical, physical)
.	BI for customer relationship management
.	Data and information visualization
.	Business performance management (BPM) and optimization
.	Data Security
.	Information privacy
.	Behavioral Economics and BI
.	BI strategies
.	BI performance metrics
.	BI governance, implementation, management and metrics
.	Management of knowledge and business process improvement
.	Measurement of organizational knowledge
.	Knowledge Management Systems (KMS)
.	Social and behavioral issues in KM

Given the very broad and encompassing nature of the research area, there is
room for new mini-tracks involving emerging issues especially those to do
with Web 2.0, mobility, and cloud computing.

Minitrack chairs will be responsible for a) promoting their minitrack to
generate manuscript submissions to AMCIS 2013;  b) soliciting and assigning
reviewers for manuscripts submitted to the minitrack; and c) making
recommendations to track chairs about each manuscript submitted to the
minitrack. Each of these important dates and activities are identified on
the AMCIS 2013 website.
