The topics related to Social Media Analytics and Big Data can be divided into four groups: technical data provision, technical data evaluation, technical data provision, technical data evaluation. The Business Intelligence and Analytics (BI&A) area of business information systems can be divided into three evolutionary areas, similar to Web 1.0 - 3.0, namely BI&A 1.0 - 3.0. In the context of BI&A 1.0, DBMS-based topics, data warehousing, data mining, ETL and OLAP were dealt with. The main focus was on structured data. Furthermore, BI&A 2.0 refers to the analyzes and techniques that are applied to unstructured data. Among other things, social media / network analyzes, web analyzes as well as information acquisition and extraction are to be mentioned. Since the end of 2011, BI&A 3.0 has been understood to mean the analysis and evaluation of data from mobile devices and sensor data. Real-time analyzes related to the evaluation of location and context data represent important issues in addition to the visualization of big data and reveal previously unknown cause-effect relationships.
The topics of Big Data and Business Analytics in Information Systems Management have been a growing field of research since 2010. Analysis research can be classified into five technologically critical categories: big data analysis, text analysis, network analysis, web analysis and mobile analysis. At the moment, research is dealing a lot with mobile analyzes, which in turn can be subdivided into different areas of application (e.g. mobile sensor-controlled apps that measure the position and activity or mobile social networks and communities).
