Staying relevant is indeed the biggest challenge facing the businesses around the globe. In an ever changing hyper-competitive business world, full of challenges, it has never been more important for organizations to be able to not only overcome these challenges but also be able to adapt and take advantage of them. There are a plethora of macro-economic forces spanning from the increasingly competitive global marketplace to amplified technological innovations that have significantly accelerated since the advent of the world-wide-web. The effective way deal with this hyper competitive environment is by incorporating innovation in the business culture of the organization and transforming it to a dynamic learning business. The current conference theme stresses upon people, product and process aspect of business to deal with this competitive and ever changing business environment.

SAICON 2014 aims to provide a platform to discuss the key issues faced by both entrepreneurial ventures and established firms in a competitive business environment. The conference seeks to enhance our understanding of how to incorporate innovation in the businesses effectively with considerations from academics and researchers.


The COMSATS Institute of Information Technology custodians of the South Asian Chapter of the Academy for Global Business Advancements (AGBA) invite academics, consultants, leaders, researchers, professionals and students from around the globe to participate in an international conference to share their cutting-edge research, conceptual frameworks, business ideas and proposals, innovative concepts, business projects and business tools and technologies. The organizing committee of the SAICON 2014 provides an exquisite opportunity to interact with people from around the world and discuss developing issues in business, economics, finance and social sciences. The SAICON 2014 aims to change the traditional method of conference congregations by empowering researchers and professionals to customize their own sessions according to the area of their interest. It also aims to strengthen the post-conference implementation of ideas and concepts by providing a continuous forum where your proposals and ideas are discussed throughout the year (electronically on the internet).

In a series of efforts to link the academia and research with the industry and promote research in the South Asian sub-continent, the organizing committee of the SAICON 2014 in collaboration with AGBA has embarked on a distinctive journey to provide an annual forum to researchers exploring different areas of business, economics and social sciences.
