2014 Conference Theme: “The Data-Enriched Enterprise”

The roles, interactions and boundaries between and among industry, government and the public have blurred as a result of global shifts and disruptive innovations. “Business as usual” may have little meaning in formerly socialist but newly privatized states, or in industries recently salvaged by government as “too big to fail”. Underlying these dramatic changes are advances in technology and communications that cross both national and sector borders, generating data that informs policy, data that transcends traditional notions of volume, velocity and variety. The theme of this conference is “The Data-Enriched Enterprise”, as data supplements or replaces intuition and creates new opportunities for businesses, for governments, and for partnerships.

This conference invites and encourages active participation of academics, policy-makers and business professionals. Functional areas of management, marketing, accounting, finance, logistics, operations all can make significant contributions to the conference theme and related concerns. Also encouraged are papers on public policy effectiveness, efficiency and equity, on tax and fiscal policy, and on their implications for wealth redistribution.

We look forward to seeing you at ACBPP 2014!
