Business intelligence (BI) and data analytics (DA) are the techniques, technologies, systems, practices, methodologies, and applications that analyze critical business data to help an enterprise better understand its business and market and make timely business decisions (Chen et al. 2012 MISQ). Recently “Big Data”, “Big Data Analytics” and “Artificial Intelligence” have further stirred the interest of researchers and practitioners on using large scale and heterogeneous data to facilitate and direct business operations.
