Track: Business Intelligence and Data Mining applications


Since Lunh first used the term Business Intelligence (BI) in 1958, major transformations happened in the area of decision support systems. Nowadays, BI systems are widely used in organizations and their strategic importance is clearly recognized. The dissemination of data mining (DM) tools is increasing in the BI field, as well as the acknowledgement of the relevance of its usage in enterprise BI systems.

BI is the top level of a complex system. On its foundations lay several databases that can be accessed and manipulated using diversified software tools, either for traditional BI tools or for DM tools. These tools allow final business users to analyze the data stored in organizational databases. It is vital to effectively implement these software tools in order to achieve better BI and DM applications.

This track aims to provide an opportunity to present and discuss some of the issues related to the implementation of BI and DM applications and respective software tools.




Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Algorithms and Techniques
  • Architectures and Methodologies
  • Case studies and project experiences
  • Data mining and Business Intelligence applications
  • Data mining and Business Intelligence software
  • Data mining and Business Intelligence interfaces
