Presentation by

Barbara Dinter
Professor of Business Information Systems at Chemnitz University of Technology,


Modern big data & analytics technologies and methods lead to manifold opportunities for innovative use cases and business models.  Although organizations have started to establish appropriate technical and organizational infrastructures (e.g. big data labs), they still need advice how to benefit best from such investments  – in particular, if the big data activities should not only result in the optimization of existing applications and processes, but in true data-driven innovation.

The talk will provide an overview how the fields of big data & analytics and of innovation management converge, resulting in many challenging research questions. Following a framework with origins in the Service Dominant Logic, I will present the potential mutual usage and impact of both fields. My current research covers some of those aspects, in particular the role of open data and of open innovation for data-driven innovation, illustrated by a research project in the field of open innovation for e-mobility. In addition, recent research on how to teach data driven innovation will be presented.

Finally, I will briefly talk about two upcoming research projects, one applying big data & analytics in mass customization, the other in digital manufacturing.
