Description

CONFERENCE BACKGROUND
The changing face of today business has spurred the expansion of huge marketplace for Enterprise Information Systems (EIS). In recent years, various concepts for more versatile enterprise information systems have emerged. They frequently foster the integration of applications or components along enterprise business processes.
Information systems within large-scale enterprises are becoming increasingly large, complex, interconnected and essential to the operation and cooperation of businesses. With the advent of the recent information revolution and as the today enterprises, open up their systems to e-commerce, e-learning and e-tasking, the volume of information that enterprise systems are empowered to manage is increasingly dramatically. The second generation of EIS systems, for example, has Web interfaces and EIS are adopted for e-business and networked supply chain management. Such an increase in information and interconnectivity between enterprise systems introduces new problems, which methods and solutions have yet to be studied and found.
This 14th Scientific Conference is geared toward dealing with such problems as; information inconsistencies within enterprise systems; the myriad of disparate systems, i.e., relational databases, mainframes, different operating systems, free text, hierarchical depositories, and so on; as well as the replacement of obsolete legacy systems in organization. Therefore, EIS systems embody emerging business paradigms and are designed to cope with the growing sophistication of business intelligence.
It is hoped that the conference submitted papers and their recommendations have to deal with the existing local enterprises information integration, seamless integration of disparate data sources on enterprise scale, provides the strategic competitive advantages that enterprises require.
The 14th Scientific Conference complements the series of the previous thirteen conferences that had been directed to improve and enhance information systems within the Egyptian and Arab enterprises to increase their capabilities to cope with the knowledge age , knowledge economy and business intelligence.
