An innovative guide to the organization and function of enterprises in the technological age

In the era of big data and automation, this book presents a cutting-edge approach in how enterprises should organize and function. Striking a practical balance between theory and practice, The Intelligent Enterprise in the Era of Big Data presents an enterprise architecture that embodies the power of the emerging technology environment.

Beginning with an introduction to the key challenges that enterprises face, the book systematically outlines a modern enterprise architecture through a detailed discussion of the inseparable elements of such an architecture: efficiency, flexibility, and intelligence. This architecture enables rapid responses to market needs by facilitating intelligent, flexible automation of enterprise business processes and sensing important developments in internal and external environments in near real time. Illustrating all of these elements in an integrated fashion, The Intelligent Enterprise in the Era of Big Data also features:
