Reviews and Testimonials
I strongly recommend The Encyclopedia of Business Analytics and Optimization as a useful source of information about the new challenges that Business Analytics will have to deal during the next years. It provides the reader with deep knowledge about recent works in business analytics, and many ideas for solving problems in optimization and business analytics using powerful methodologies such as machine learning and data mining techniques.

Successful enterprises recognize that analytics based on ever-increasing and vast amounts of data, coupled with optimized decision processes, signal tremendous opportunities for new business advantage. If you are looking for new knowledge in this area, go no further – filled with a diverse set of topics, this five-volume book is a valuable resource of Business Analytics for the academic and the practitioner alike.
– Dr. Chanaka Edirisinghe, The University of Tennessee, USA
The content of the encyclopedia is vast and diverse, which from my point of view is a very strong asset. I believe the target audience will be primarily from the fields of Operations Research and from Business/Economics, but researchers from other fields like Computer Engineering would be highly interested since many chapters are based on concepts from this field of research as well. Highly recommended.
