Big data as an information source in the decision making-processes of the e-commerce companies

Dariusz Weiland


This article discusses the opportunities offered by the use of Big Data in e-commerce and presents this tool as a source of information affecting the decision-making process. Some sections are devoted to introducing and presenting the perspective on information as a resource, while others attempt to define Big Data and outline the way in which Big Data may be utilised as a source of information supply in e-commerce; further parts elaborate on the challenges that information logistics has to face in order to make Big Data more adaptable in e-commerce.
