With rapid developments in the advances of big data science, analytics and technology, big data is a key enabler for exploring business insights and economics of services, and in helping professionals to reduce risks by using big data facilities to make decisions.

In this context, big data is very promising but comes with big challenges in data analysis. This special issue aims to provide an international platform for researchers and industry and domain experts to share the latest advances in big data, as well as their experience, knowledge and synergy.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2015 International Conference on Big Data, Cloud and Applications (BDCA'15), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
