Open Big Data 2016 : Open Data Innovations in Business and Government
Call For Papers
Open Data Innovations in Business and Government
The Handbook of Research on Open Data Innovations in Business and Government provides a reference for researchers and practitioners in this area. Instructors, researchers, and professionals interested in the most up-to-date research on the concepts, issues, applications, and trends in the Open and Big Data field will find this Handbook of Research, extremely useful.
The 21st century has seen a growth with the amount of data made available through such platforms as Social Media, eGovernment services, online business, crowd-sourcing, ThunderClapp and many others, too. Open Data is not purely for the technologically minded but covers a wider range of stakeholders and areas: governance, citizens, privacy, economics, policy restructuring, legal, ethical; society at large are key to fulfilling the Open Data phenomenon. The Open Data technology leap is making large advances in areas of Health, Education, International Development, European Union collaborative platforms and many other areas like transportation and crime.
A new wave of electronic information is being dispensed by organisations, both public and private. At a local, national and international level we have councils (Local Government), central government departments and inter-governmental cooperation, SMEs and multi-national-organisations. This has led to the European Union coordinating the European Data Forum like the Open Data Institute and Open knowledge Foundation among many others around the world to-date.
The key objective of the book is to disseminate state of the art techniques, models, case studies and technologies that further the Open Business and Open Data field of study around the world. Having a platform to bring together international research in the field of Big Data, eBusiness, eGovernment, Open Data and Open Business provides a rich source of information exchange that will benefit the community. Value comes from the richness and quality of contributor’s worldwide. It is expected that contributing authors will be from academia, business and government.
Academics and researchers will find numerous ideas in the research-based chapters of this book in Open Data, Open Business, and Open Government. In particular, it contains the detailed and relevant references at the end of each contributed chapter, the research methodologies followed, and the discussions on action-research based case studies. Thus, the strong research focus of this book makes this book an ideal reference point for active researchers in this area, as well as government policy makers that need up to date information on the latest thinking of Open Data globally.
