    The special issue on business analytics has been a great endeavor with more than 100 papers received. The call for papers highlighted that business analytics has a clear role to generate competitive advantage in organizations and our focus has been to demonstrate this role through the papers finally selected for the special issue. The editorial aims to provide not only a summary of the papers but also presents our perspective on the current situation of the field through a computational literature review and comparison with the papers in the special issue. Our findings, and discussions on the papers included in the special issue, suggest that business analytics is maturing as a field with significant synergies and opportunities for the operational research community.
