5th Workshop on Business and IT Alignment (BITA 2014)
http://bis.kie.ue.poznan.pl/17th_bis/wscfp.php?ws=bita2014

A contemporary challenge for enterprises is to keep up with the pace of changing business demands imposed on them in different ways. There is today an obvious demand for continuous improvement and alignment in enterprises but unfortunately many organisations don’t have proper instruments (methods, patterns, best practices etc.) to achieve this. Enterprise modelling and business process management are two areas belonging to a tradition where the mission is to improve business practice and business and IT alignment. In this tradition the alignment process usually is manifested in taking a business from one state (AS-IS) into another improved state (TO-BE), i.e. a transformation of the business and its supporting IT into something that is regarded as better. A challenge in business and IT alignment is to move beyond a narrow focus on one tradition or technology. There is a need to aware of and able to deal with a number of dimensions of the enterprise architecture and their relations in order to create alignment. Examples of such dimensions are: organisational structures, strategies, business models, work practices, processes, and IS/IT structures. Among the concepts that deserve special attention in this context is IT governance. Effective IT governance aligns IT investments with overall business priorities, determines who makes the IT decisions and assigns accountability for the outcomes.

This workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in business and IT alignment. We would like to invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing projects. We encourage broad understanding of possible approaches and solutions for business and IT alignment, including IT governance subjects. Specific focus will be on practices of business and IT alignment, i.e. we encourage submission of case study and experience papers.

Topics
Challenges in business and IT alignment
Business and IT alignment in small and medium sized enterprises
Business/ IT alignment through BPM
Business and IT alignment discovery, change and improvement - methodologies and best practices
Business value of business and IT alignment
Organisational implementations of various levels of business and IT alignment approaches

Critical success factors and associated KPIs´ for alignment initiatives
IT governance as a mean for alignment
Enterprise modelling as a tool for business and IT alignment

1st Workshop on Tools for Setting Up and Running a Business in Cloud Computing (TSRB 2014)
http://bis.kie.ue.poznan.pl/17th_bis/wscfp.php?ws=tsrb2014

During the last decade technology evolved in a way that resulted in huge amount of data. This evolvement imposed on enterprises, the need to automate their core processes for operational excellence while spending huge amount of money to acquire the infrastructure and the tools to do so. The data repositories developed, provided the means to accrue the significant benefit of leveraging the value hidden in information accumulated during business transactions over time to support decision making and improve performance implying additional investments for the companies.

Nowadays, this need becomes crucial for the survival of enterprises since competition becomes more aggressive, profit margins are limited, market becomes more demanding and customers seek experience of high quality and value. Even though, the cost of such infrastructures has been significantly reduced, the economic crisis limited the business budgets (especially for small and medium enterprises) in ways that could not afford setting up high performance infrastructures.

The concept of cloud computing provides the solution to address the problem of high cost by providing infrastructures that accommodate the tools needed for setting up and running a business.

This workshop invites researchers and business experts to share knowledge by introducing innovative tools for setting up and running a business in cloud computing. We expect practitioners to demonstrate business case tutorials that will introduce the sophisticated technologies and skills needed to capture transactions and process business data: (a) to operate business and (b) to find patterns and relationships from past transactions to make decisions and to improve an organization’s performance and decision making ability.

Topics
Cloud Computing: Solutions and Best Practices
In-memory Computing and Big Data
Business Suites and Underline Architectures
Advanced Management Solutions: Financials, HR, Sales, Procurement, Billing, Order Management, etc.
Advanced Knowledge-Based Business Information Systems
Decision Support Systems in Business
Enterprise Resource Planning
Customer Relationship Management
Supplier Relationship Management
Business Intelligence
Data Mining In Business
Facility Management
Customer Experience Management
Campaign Management
Marketing
Developing innovative products and services (basket analysis)
Business Discovery
Social Media

Workshop on Cloud Operations and Very Large Business Applications (VLBA 2014)
http://bis.kie.ue.poznan.pl/17th_bis/wscfp.php?ws=vlba2014


Very Large Business Applications (VLBA) act as enabler for intra- and interorganisational business processes and play a significant role in the development of new business models. With a special focus on related operations management this workshop aims at studying, grounding, and finally exploiting the potential of VLBA to solve integration and coordination problems in distributed business processes as a key enabler of flexible, boundaryless information systems.

Key research questions are:
- how to represent VLBA in service-based information systems by employing and adapting constructs, models, and methods of different information systems technology stacks,
- how to coordinate software services by employing and adapting approaches for service discovery and composition,
- how to operate large-scale, highly distributed enterprise systems aligned with the needs of an agile business environment,
- how to negotiate and agree upon the delivery of software-based services (SLA),
- how to control the delivery of software-based services in VLBA by measuring efficiency and effectiveness.
