About the book

Ongoing IT&C development, the existence of new organizational models and growing demands of today's society lead to continuous challenges in the development of Business Intelligence (BI) solutions. Also, the increasing degree of automation, the emergence of more solutions/technologies/models that correspond to the current digital transformations (such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, machine learning, spatial intelligence) determines new challenges and changes in the evolution of BI solutions. This book aims to highlight new dimensions in the evolution of BI, as well as its applications in knowledge and intelligence-based society. Theoretical parts, with a role in the development of BI knowledge, will be combined with practical parts, by using current BI solutions in practice. Also, this project aims to present best practices in the field of BI, to identify tools and recommendations regarding BI application and the changes brought by these solutions on BI, such as cloud computing, big data, IoT, and others.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
