In the context of eMedia and creative industry: information systems, information management,
knowledge management, decision management, workflow management, electronic media, IT systems,
human factors of IT systems, management technology, digital services, big data, open data,
linked data

According to Gartner published in Techcrunch, communications media and services are the 3rd
largest IT systems spenders with a yearly growth rate of 4.4% with a share of approx. $4
billion in 2011, after banking & securities and manufacturing & natural
resources [1]. For example, the TV industry was faced with tremendous change in technologies
during the past decade, such as the digital switchover, the introduction of HDTV,
or the provision of 3D content. Large scale asset repositories and different workflows in the
content production process had to be introduced. Other media industries faced similar
challenges, as the emergence of digital publishing, digital content distribution,
or advancement of in-house customer relationship management infrastructures, and the
digitalization of workflows.

This change towards digital implies a more holistic view of information systems and management
in media industries to provide optimal system solutions, and eventually cut costs. Where other
industries are well researched in terms of their IT system solutions, in media industries the
discussion around content repositories, media management solutions, and digital workflows seems
to be predominant. Within the context of this publication, a more holistic view towards information
systems and management in media industries shall be introduced, and emphasize the importance of
research of business information management and systems in media industries.

The media and entertainment industry is the third largest industry segment for investments in
information systems. And this particular industry segment is faced with tremendous challenges
in terms of organizational, transformational, leadership, customer behaviour, and technological
changes. One particular challenge is the transformation of the analogue media world into its
digital counterpart. As of today, the successive research of business information management
and systems focusing on media and entertainment industries is rather fragmented and stretches
over a wide area of research islands such as social media, eCommerce, or eBusiness.

To face this challenge, this book focuses on information management and systems for media and
entertainment industries and highlighting their particular needs in production, distribution,
and consumption. The book shall gather a scientific community around the theme of business
information management and systems in the larger context of media and entertainment industries.

Special Focus on the Notion NEW approaches of Content and Media in Information Systems &
Management Applications in Particular in Application Areas as: Big Data, Crowd, Open Data,
Linked Data, Cloud Application, New Business Analytics, Information Visualization, Workflow
Management, and Global Digital Production Pipelines.
