With the increasing success of cloud computing, cloud business intelligence "as a service" offerings have arisen, both from cloud startups and major BI industry vendors. Beyond porting BI features into the cloud, which already implies numerous issues (e.g., BigData/NoSQL database modeling and storage, data localization, data marketplaces, security and privacy, performance, cost and usage models...), this trend also poses new, broader challenges for making data analytics available to small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs), non-governmental organizations, web communities (e.g., supported by social networks), and even the average citizen. This vision requires new integration and deployment models. For example, some deployments would benefit from an integrated database of private and open data.

Following the 2nd edition of the Cloud-I workshop at VLDB 2013 (http://eric.univ-lyon2.fr/cloud-i/), the aim of this special issue of Information Systems is to attract the best papers related to the field of Cloud Intelligence, with respect to the non-exhaustive list of topics below. Survey papers on specific topics within Cloud Intelligence are also welcome.
