08-01 - Economics and Value of IS


Location: Fürstenberghaus
Address: Domplatz 20-22 48143 Münster Germany
Room: F33
Date: 27 May 11:00 - 12:30


A major part of our current economy is based on the value creation through Information Systems (IS) that enable the creation, exchange, and processing of large amounts of information. This results in new business models such as the upcoming sharing economy and opportunities for firms such as product customization, analyzing consumer-produced content, or marketing through social networks. However, the details on how such new business models and opportunities affect organizations, industries, economies and societies in the long run still have to be investigated. The economics and value of IS track considers various issues related to IS and IT including economics of information goods, platforms, cloud computing, mobile services, as well as the impact of IT-driven business models on existing organizations, industries, economies, and societies. The common element across all papers is that they are expected to make an original contribution to the theory or practice of creating, adopting or using information technology. This may come from examining new phenomena, applying a new theoretical perspective, or by gathering new data. Authors should focus on articulating their unique contribution, linking it both to the body of their study and contrasting it to the characterization from prior research.

Track: 08 - Economics and Value of IS
Since the ongoing proliferation of information technology (IT) in our private and professional lives, researchers have been concerned with the conceptualization and measurement of the “value” that technology brings us. To this end, researchers have based their assumptions and theories on the technological achievements and perceptions of technology at that time. Ever since the introduction of s ... More
