In association with the Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS 2010), the premiere MIS conference in the Pacific Asia, the Workshop on Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics aims to provide a forum for discussion of emerging business intelligence and analytics applications, research, and educational topics in the US and the Greater China region.
This Pre-PACIS workshop was held on July 9, 2010. Industry and academic BI leaders were invited to present in a one-day panel format. Executives from major IT and consulting firms discussed their ongoing BI practices, methodologies, techniques, and lessons learned. Academic BI leaders from US, Canada, and Singapore also reported their new and advanced BI research. In addition to the PACIS audience, IT and business practitioners, researchers, and students interested in emerging BI developments are participated. The workshop was hosted at the five-star PACIS Conference hotel, the Grand Formosa Regent Hotel, centrally located in Taipei, Taiwan.
Business Intelligence (BI), a term coined in 1989, has gained much traction in the IT practitioner community and academia over the past two decades. BI refers to the "skills, technologies, applications, and practices used to transform business data and information into actionable intelligence for business decision making." Based on a survey of 1,400 CEOs, the Gartner Group projected BI revenue to reach $3 billion in 2009 (Gartner, 2006). According to an IBM Global CIO Study, the collective voice of more than 2,500 Chief Information Officers worldwide points to business intelligence and analytics as the top visionary plan for enhancing their enterprises' competitiveness. As a data-centric approach, BI heavily relies on advanced data collection, extraction, and analysis technologies, including: data warehousing, Extraction, Transformation, and Load (ETL), Business Performance Management (BPM), and advanced knowledge discovery using data and text mining. In the past five years, web intelligence, web analytics, web 2.0, and user-generated social media contents have also begun to usher in a new and exciting era of Business Intelligence 2.0 (BI 2.0) research.
