Analytics in the Era of Big Data: Opportunities and Challenges
This special issue of Knowledge@HEC highlights several research projects and teaching initiatives at HEC Paris in the context of big data and business analytics. Nowadays it does not take much to convince students or managers alike of the importance of data for businesses. As Wedel and Kannan (2016) put it, “data is the oil of the digital economy”. Indeed, data is completely transforming organizations, and data-driven decision making is becoming more and more a part of a company’s core. In an increasing digital world, all of us are walking data generators, leaving long data trails: we have more data on everything.
CSR Special Issue
Corporate Social Responsibility
This month’s newsletter focuses on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and pinpoints work carried out by HEC Paris’ Society and Organizations Center. Its research aims to show how a company will be ahead of its competitors when focusing not only on economic gain, the first pillar of competitive advantage, but also how it aligns its values and operations to contribute to a better society while preserving the natural environment. Taking care of our planet, its limited resources and people has therefore become an essential component of a firm’s legitimacy, the second pillar of competitive advantage. Finding solutions to our planet’s over-exploitation, and unequal access to multiple services is a source of good – and of growth.
