The disciplines of management and IT have indeed merged: new empirical data

Advancement in the intelligence field can only be achieved through new observations and the presentation of new empirical data. This is a continuous process and includes how we as employees engage with software and technical solutions. Just as it is impossible to teach or learn anything in marketing today without a deep understanding of digital marketing, in the same way is it impossible to make advancements in intelligence studies without first-hand experience with business intelligence software and new IT-equipment. Management and IT have indeed merged. This understanding has been an integrated part of JISIB since the journal started some eight years ago. And as always, we are less interested in how new technologies are developed (for that there are excellent technical journals) than about the management practice of these developments.  This issue follows very much on this track.
