It is widely acknowledged that organizations have suffered a large evolution at the social, economic and technological levels where the traditional barriers of transferring information and knowledge have been progressively eliminated. This evolution allowed the elimination of silos, the breaking down of hierarchies, the connection of internal and external stakeholders and the empowering of employees. In this context, the integration of technological innovations, such as Big Data – Analytics, Cloud Computing, Mobile Connectivity, and Social, the four pillars of digital transformation, in business practice can enable significant competitive advantage.
According to Earley Information Science digital transformation (DT), is today a top priority for executives, being that (1) 125000 enterprises expect revenue from their digital initiatives to increase by 80% by 2020; (2) DT initiatives will more than double by 2020, from 22% to almost 50% and, (3) only 27% of businesses have a coherent digital strategy for creating customer value in place.
The main purpose of digital transformation is to obtain benefits of digital technologies, such as productivity improvements, cost reductions and innovation. Nevertheless, for these results to be achieved, a total organizational commitment is required.
From the organizations’ point of view, DT can be seen as a deep and accelerating transformation with regard to processes, activities, competencies and models, in order to take advantage of the changes and opportunities offered by the inclusion of digital technologies into an organization. However, this advantage is only possible if the information systems of the organizations are aligned with these new technologies.
Thus, the Future Generation Computer Systems journal is seeking manuscripts for a special issue entitled “Big Data, Cloud, Mobile and Social in Digital transformation”. This issue will have as broad a scope as possible with respect how DT can be used to attain this goal. We also would like to attract papers that discuss the impact of the DT in the everyday life citizens, enterprises and governments.
This special issue will include full-papers resulting from:
- Extended papers presented at the WorldCist'18 - 6th World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies (http://www.worldcist.org) to be held at Naples, Italy, 27 - 29 March 2018. For this special issue will be selected some best papers from the tracks “A) Information and Knowledge Management (IKM)”; “D) Software Systems, Architectures, Applications and Tools (SSAAT)”; “H) Big Data Analytics and Applications (BDAA)”.
- Other original research contributions focusing on the aims and scope of this special issue.
