The Meaning of Context as an Important Element of Business Process Management
This article is dedicated to the problem of communication; on the process example is considered the part of documentation support with analysis that specify some mistakes and context risks that can decrease process performance.
In this paper the authors consider the cross-cultural and cognitive aspects of the semiotic information transmission, namely, how information is exchanged and interpreted by representatives of different cultural groups in the context of business processes. The article deals with the issues of subjective perception of information, the visual effectiveness of business process models and their informative content, and the way cultural factors affect the complexity or simplicity of models’ perception. The study includes models and drawings as illustrations of processes. The semantic content of some notations for describing business processes, the pictogram language, and associative drawings are given on specific examples. A hypothesis is proposed about the relationship and influence of certain objective and subjective factors over the semiotic content of business processes and the ability to manage those factors for more effective solutions for better addressing the relevant business challenges. The concepts of knowledge, information and data are considered in relation to the research topic for a clearer understanding of the subject area. The authors note the general goal of using process models in the form of the processes notations and schematic images in the form of drawings and pictograms with differences in the levels of semantic support and emotional context based on identical simple cognitive mechanisms: visual associative series, text, and the location of objects. The research can be useful for the design of cultural and context-dependent types of communication, both the imperative and motivational (posters, signs) and also the descriptive (information about processes, instructions, messages, etc.).
International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) is the major annual meeting of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) , which has over 4,000 members representing universities in over 95 countries worldwide. It is the most prestigious gathering of academics and practitioners in the IS discipline, and provides a forum for networking and sharing of latest ideas and highest calibre scientific work amongst the IS profession. Each year, over 1,000 IS academic professionals from around the world participate in the conference program, which includes about 60 sessions and 180 presentations, in addition to keynotes and panels. The theme of ICIS 2017 is Transformation Society with Digital innovation.
The objective is to provide an opportunity for Big Data researchers and practitioners to build a dynamic community for open and constructive discussions and exchange of academia and industrial experience.
ICIS 2017 SIG on BDA Proceedings include the topics of Business process modelling, Enterprise Architecture, Data Processing and on e-Commerce to find out the new industrial impacts of applied Big Data analytics, e.g. in marketing, risk-assurance, logistics and quality management.

This article is a final report of process enhancement project in one of the leading Russian banks. It was done with the set of tools and techniques for enriching process models with semantic information and adjusting them on request. We propose an approach for binding these models with corresponding documents and expert profiles define factors that trigger models’ changes using company’s information field.
Bled eConference has been shaping electronic interactions since 1988. It attracts speakers and delegates from business, government, information technology providers and universities and is the major venue for researchers working in all aspects of “e”.
The conference venue is the Alpine village of Bled, 30 km south of the Austrian border – one of the most beautiful spots imaginable. Expect to learn and play and come away feeling that you have achieved more than you normally would at any conference.
With fresh ideas and complementary themes we would like to establish a creative environment for researchers, government, industry/business representatives and technology providers and an attractive meeting point for discussing new R&D and project ideas, also in the spirit of new Horizon 2020.
The conference has a wide appeal, offering:a fully-refereed Research Track, devoted to researchers in all aspects of “e”; ePrototype Students Bazaar, offering the students opportunities to present innovative e- or m-Business ideas, models, prototypes and apps; Graduate Students Research Consortium, offering the students to present their ongoing master’s and PhD study results; a Business and Government Panel Track which attracts eminent business and government leaders from Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific; Business, Government and Academic Workshops and Meetings offering unparalleled opportunities to discuss, share and learn with colleagues from around the world; EU projects dissemination meetings; enabling project partners to connect with other similar projects and to disseminate results to a wider community.
This paper examines the changes in the ethics of business communication associated with virtualization. The transfer of business communication to virtual space alters the very process of interaction and, as a consequence, ethical principles in a professional environment.
Currently businesses are constantly adapting their business processes to the ever-changing market conditions. This involves a continuous monitoring and improvement of business processes. Process Mining is a useful approach to automated reconstruction of business process models from event logs collected from company’s information systems, as well as to detecting deviations from the assumed process model and to monitoring of process’ KPIs. There is a growing trend towards implementing Process Mining tools for logistics and supply chain management. This paper presents the key concepts of Process Mining. The methods are illustrated with a practical example of a logistical process analysis. We consider three main types of Process Mining. Finally, an overview of research and business cases for Process Mining in logistics and supply chain management is provided.
