ICBER2024: Special Issue on: "Technology and Business: New Challenges and Opportunities"

Guest Editors:
Dr. Ping Yin and Dr. Xiaodong Qiu, Beijing Jiaotong University, China

The significance of Big Data (BD), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and other emerging technologies has taken centre stage in business and management research. Advanced analytics technology is enhancing the profitability and competitiveness of organisations through the extension of marketing and business knowledge. Existing literature underscores the impact of these 'smart analytics' on elevating managerial performance. Nevertheless, there remains a wealth of research avenues pertaining to the adoption of Big Data and AI in marketing and business.

This special issue is dedicated to exploring the intersection of technology and business. In the contemporary landscape, the symbiotic relationship between technological advancements and business strategies plays a pivotal role in shaping the global economic and industrial ecosystem. We aim to provide a scholarly platform for researchers, academicians, and industry experts to contribute to the discourse on the dynamic interplay between technology and business.

We invite original research papers, reviews, and case studies that delve into various aspects of technology's impact on business practices and vice versa.

The Guest Editors will be inviting substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 14th International Conference on Business and Economics Research (ICBER2024), for review and potential publication, but are also inviting other experts to submit articles for this call.
