Description and Topics of Interest:

To compete in this highly competitive marketplace, organizations have to strengthen their core competencies. Part of such strengthening includes selecting, designing, and implementing the right enterprise systems (ES) and incorporating good business processes. Most costly IT innovation investments, especially ES, often play a critical role in supporting or changing these business processes. Despite decades of research in the last two decades, organisations are still struggling to manage issues relating to business process change and enterprise system implementation. Such issues include cloud ERP computing, web services (e.g., web 2.0), social media (e.g., enterprise social media), managing high-performance analytics applications (e.g., SAP HANA) and improving the ES user experience. The field needs novel and forward looking papers which propose and critically evaluate new ways of thinking about business processes, system development, and enterprise architecture.


Our track welcomes quality submissions that inform novel conceptualisations and applications of business process management and enterprise systems. Such work can analyse these topics across a wide range of methodological and theoretical perspectives, including but not limited to operations research, design science, quantitative, qualitative, or economic perspectives.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
New frontiers in enterprise systems project management and outsourcing
Issues and new frontiers in business process management
Enterprise systems as platforms for development and growth
The implications of mobile devices and applications on enterprise systems advancement
g data analytics and enterprise systems
