Big Data plays an essential factor in the wheel of management of organizations in the world’s business so that Big Data has been receiving significant attention in a variety of research and application fields as business and management over recent years. The volume of data generated by computers, people, software, and networks along with the related difficulty of the scientific community involves creativity in organizational management. In business, the ability to work with various types of data - management techniques will provide highly technical expertise to the organizations and governments that they need to operate effectively. In addition, the increasing interest in big data analysis and applications in the management activities indicates that the digital domain field is likely to soon become a data-intensive one.

This Special Issue will present selected samples of the recent research on the use of advanced methods in management science in the wide field of Big Data Analytics, technologies, models, strategies, and methodologies. It will address common principles and technical approaches to data analysis and computational methodology used in the business field, and potentially create doors for further study and advancement of innovative analytical tools and techniques in Big Data applications.

This special issue aims to motivate researchers in the field of managing data to publish their latest research, up-to-date challenges, and opportunities. Proposed submissions should be original and unpublished.
