Sp. issue on "Ubiquitous Business Intelligence:  The new milestone for (inter)-organizational learning"
The Learning Organization Journal (ISSN: 0969-6474)

Call for papers:

The Organizational ontology used to be based on several axioms: For example the perception
that boundaries define a whole eco-system where people, processes and technology pursuing
an equilibrium of high performance. Management Science in this direction developed several
models, frameworks and tools aiming at a deeper understanding of the socio-technical
character of organizations.

The technological pace in the last decade revealed a new reality: A world of information
highways, tremendous mobility and enormous knowledge creation and diffusion. In this
context traditional business boundaries have been merely reconsidered.  Strategic
alliances, integration of value chains and mutual business exploitation scenarios
formulate a new challenging business context. Communities of people, socio-technical
information systems and leading-edge technologies promote a mix of heterogeneous
performance factors. According to this new reality a qualitative shift in priorities
has been confirmed: The information systems backbone in organizations is nowadays
influenced by several key developments. Semantic web, ontologies, intelligent agents,
advanced networking, knowledge management and advanced learning infrastructures emphasize
the importance for the dynamic diffusion of value and meaning. Knowledge diffusion and
exploitation are as much important as knowledge ownership.

The same stands for the considerations of business intelligence. The sophistication of
knowledge management and the learning capacity based on information systems is forcing
new perceptions of value. Two significant factors require a multidisciplinary approach:
the establishment of communication channels and the direct or indirect reference of
critical resources.

The aim of this special issue is to explore topics related with the new opportunities
for business intelligence created by the advent of knowledge management, advanced
learning technologies, and mobile and wireless applications. We aim at a balanced
composition of conceptual, technological and system evaluation work and invite
submissions dealing with the following topics:

§ Intelligent Corporate Learning systems
§ Strategies for technology enabled inter-organizational learning
§ Knowledge Management at the (Inter)-Organizational Level
§ Mobile and wireless applications for ubiquitous business intelligence
§ Architectures for Business Intelligence Systems
§ Supporting personalized and adaptive learning with leading edge technologies
§ Supporting flexible business intelligence systems with Semantic Web technologies
§ Innovative Case Studies

Although this list of topics is not intended to be exclusive, authors are strongly
encouraged to submit original manuscripts that are related to one or more of the
above issues.
