In the past few years, business analytics has emerged as one of the most popular and important issues for both researchers and practitioners with an explosion of large-scale data such as social media data and real-time and historical data. Managers across all industries are looking for opportunities to increase efficiencies and gain competitive advantage through the analysis of big data using a variety of quantitative techniques such as statistics, operations research methods, data mining, and social mining. We can clearly see that the possibilities of business analytics continue to evolve, driven by the recent advancement in knowledge management and business intelligence. The question that arises is how to best capture the value by combining business analytics and knowledge management. Building on existing work in knowledge management and business intelligence, it is essential to identify how business analytics can be used to address many of the issues currently facing knowledge management in both academia and industrial sectors.

sustainable competitive advantage in the domains of knowledge management, business intelligence, business analytics, and big data. It aims to draw together empirically-grounded and theoreticallyinformed analyses of the key issues in contemporary forms of knowledge management and business analytics across various fields and methodologies.
