Special Issue on “Big Data and Digital Transformation”

The reality we live in is more and more of a digital nature. This Digital Transformation embraces all of society and is the cause of disruptive changes. Indeed, from smart cities and urban computing to virtual enterprises, social media and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, our lives are progressively being digitalized.
In the era of Digital Transformation, the distributed nature and scalability requirements of the new ICT solutions are the norm. These, combined with the large volumes of data which are being generated at increasingly higher paces coming from a multitude of sources, require the need for innovative data (analysis) solutions. So, Digital Transformation and Big Data solutions are deeply related. One cannot happen without the other.
This Big Data and Digital Transformation special issue aims to publish research work spanning across fields as diverse as computer science and engineering, information systems and software, business and social sciences, describing innovative approaches to (distributed) Big Data solutions and applications in the realm of Digital Transformation.
