IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management

Special Issue on Advances in Big Data Analytics for Management


(Submissions due: 3 May 2017)


Cloud and network analytics can harness the immense stream of
operational data from clouds and networks, and can perform analytics
processing to improve reliability, configuration, performance, and
security management. In particular, we see a growing trend towards
using statistical analysis and machine learning to improve operations
and management of IT systems and networks.

Research is therefore needed to understand and improve the potential
and suitability of Big Data analytics in the context of systems and
network management. This will not only provide deeper understanding
and better decision making based on largely collected and available
operational data, but present opportunities for improving data
analysis algorithms and methods on aspects such as accuracy and
scalability. Moreover, there is an opportunity to define novel
platforms that can harness the vast operational data and advanced data
analysis algorithms to drive management decisions in networks, data
centers, and clouds.

IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (IEEE TNSM) is a
premier journal for timely publication of archival research on the
management of networks, systems, services and applications. Following
the success of TNSM special issue on Big Data Analytics for Management
(September 2016), this special issue of TNSM will focus on "Advances
in Big Data Analytics for Management," presenting recent, emerging
approaches and technical solutions that can exploit Big Data and
analytics in management solutions. We welcome submissions addressing
the underlying challenges of Big Data Analytics for Management and
presenting novel theoretical or experimentation results. Survey papers
that offer a perspective on related work and identify key challenges
for future research will be considered as well.
