This special issue of RAE will focus on methods, measures, and practices that connect Big Data issues to relevant aspects such as business value, digital transformation
and organizational performance. The papers should help researchers and managers
to understand the concepts, requirements, platforms, and benefits of Big Data initiatives as well as its requirements, potential risks and unintended consequences.

Submitted papers must contain new, unpublished and original work related to Big Data and Data Science theory, algorithms and applications. This issue will welcome papers on the conceptual aspects as well as papers on specific applications and technologies used to cope with Big Data.
