Special Issue Scope: This special issue invites original manuscripts of high quality research that use analytical and empirical modeling approaches to explore the increasing complex roles that advanced information technologies such as RFID, cloud computing, and Web 2.0 play in business operations and strategies. In particular, we seek novel studies that systematically explore the complex interplays between information technology and business process designs, customer relationship management, organizational architectures, product development, sales and services, and supply chain management.

There is a growing body of research within the economics, marketing, operations management, information systems, and healthcare communities which are starting to address those issues. We expect to see submissions significantly contribute to understanding of issues in the relevant research area and that guide future research.

Suggested Topics include, but not limited to, the following areas:

Business analytics and Big Data in supply chain management
Information sharing and integration along the supply chain
Sales innovation using real-time location and social data
The impact of web 2.0 on competition and cooperation
Capacity planning, contracting and supply chain design
Social media implications for operations management
Using mobile applications for order fulfillment
Crowdsourcing and product innovation
Outsourcing service operations
Innovations in healthcare IT
Scheduling and planning
