Business Informatics is the scientific discipline targeting information processes and related phenomena in their socio-economical business context, including companies, organisations, administrations and society in general. Business Informatics is a fertile ground for research with the potential for immense and tangible impact. As a field of study, it endeavours to take a systematic and analytic approach in aligning core concepts from management science, organisational science, economics information science, and informatics into an integrated engineering science.
The field of Business Informatics involves a broad spectrum of more specific research domains that focus on important aspect of informatics in the context of organizations, ecosystems and society at large. These domains include:
Business Model Innovation, Business Process Engineering, Empowering & Enabling Technologies, Enterprise Architecture, Enterprise Engineering, Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise & Business Transformation, Method Engineering, Service Innovation & Engineering, Social & Frontier Technologies
The goal of the IEEE Conference on Business Informatics (IEEE-CBI) is to bring together existing Business Informatics related research domains and thus stimulate discussions, synergy and integration of their respective research results and activities. Accordingly, the CBI conferences use a format that enables in depth discussions amongst researchers in their respective domains during the conference. In addition, the contributions and discussions among the different domains are planned to be channeled towards a book series dedicated to Advances in Business Informatics.
