The Intelligent Enterprise in the Era of Big Data presents a cutting-edge approach to how enterprises should organize and function. The book was published this month by Wiley.
RAGE Frameworks, which Srinivasan founded in 2004, supports the creation of intelligent business process automation solutions and cognitive intelligence solutions for global corporations. Prior to RAGE Frameworks, Srinivasan founded E-Credit, which he sold in 1999. Srinivasan is an entrepreneur and holds several patents in the area of knowledge-based technology architectures. He is the author of two edited volumes and over 30 peer-reviewed publications. He has served as an associate professor in the College of Business Administration at Northeastern University.
“The enterprise of tomorrow has the opportunity to be intelligent in addition to being efficient,” Srinivasan writes in the preface of his book. “Flexible software frameworks and the ability to understand the meaning of unstructured documents will provide enormous power to enterprises in designing an entirely new architecture for doing business.”
Srinivasan’s book is already receiving great reviews from his peers and experts.
“Srinivasan gives us a practical and provocative guide for rethinking our business process … calling us all to action around rapid development of our old, hierarchical structures into flexible customer centric competitive force …. A must read for today’s business leader” says Mark Nunnelly, Executive Director, MassIT, Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Managing Director, Bain Capital.
Adds Bharat Anand, Henry R. Byers Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School: “’Efficiency,’ ‘agile,’ and ‘analytics’ used to be the rage. Venkat Srinivasan explains in this provocative book why organizations can no longer afford to stop there. They need to move beyond – to be ‘intelligent.’ It isn’t just theory. He’s done it.”
Srinivasan touches on key challenges that enterprises face today, and systematically outlines modern enterprise architecture through a detailed discussion of the inseparable elements of such architecture: efficiency, flexibility, and intelligence. This architecture enables rapid responses to market needs by sensing important developments in internal and external environments in real time. Illustrating all of these elements in an integrated fashion, The Intelligent Enterprise in the Era of Big Data also features:
- A detailed discussion on issues of time-to-market and flexibility with respect to enterprise application technology,
- Novel analyses illustrated through extensive real-world case studies to help readers better understand the applicability of the architecture and concepts,
- Various applications of natural language processing to real-world business transactions, and
- Practical approaches for designing and building intelligent enterprises.
“The Intelligent Enterprise in the Era of Big Data is an appropriate reference for business executives, information technology professionals, data scientists, and management consultants,” says the publisher Wiley. “The book is also an excellent supplementary textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level courses in business intelligence, data mining, big data, and business process automation.”
