Special Issue on Novel Techniques in Big Data Analytics for Management

** Deadline extension - submissions now due: November 30, 2018 **

Cloud and network analytics can harness the immense stream of
operational data from clouds and networks, and can perform analytics
processing to improve reliability, configuration, performance, fault
and security management. In particular, we see a growing trend towards
using statistical analysis, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine
learning to improve operations and management of IT systems and

Research is therefore needed to understand and improve the potential
and suitability of Big Data analytics and AI in the context of systems
and network management. This will not only provide deeper
understanding and better decision making based on largely collected
and available operational data, but present opportunities for
improving data analysis algorithms and methods on aspects such as
accuracy and scalability, as well as demonstrate the benefits of
machine intelligence methods in system and network management and
control. Moreover, there is an opportunity to define novel platforms
that can harness the vast operational data and advanced data analysis
algorithms to drive management decisions in networks, data centers,
and clouds.

IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (IEEE TNSM) is a
premier journal for timely publication of archival research on the
management of networks, systems, services and applications. Following
the success of two recent TNSM special issues on Big Data Analytics
for Management in 2016 and 2018, this special issue will also focus on
recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions that can exploit
Big Data, analytics, and AI in management solutions. We welcome
submissions addressing the underlying challenges of Big Data Analytics
for Management and presenting novel techniques, experimental results,
or theoretical approaches motivated by management problems. Survey
papers that offer a perspective on related work and identify key
challenges for future research are also in the scope of the special
