Track Description

Amidst the growing turbulence of the contemporary business landscape, information systems (IS) and the way they are applied towards enabling the strategy of businesses have become an increasingly important determinant of competitive advantage. While the area of IS management and strategy has always been a vibrant research stream, there are still plenty of opportunities for developing and studying new models, methodologies and applications. This is in light of the trends of pervasive digitization and technological convergence, which have added complexity and new dimensions to most, if not all, business strategies, decisions and processes.

This track invites papers that focus on IS management and strategy. In line with the conference theme, we are particularly interested in papers that address the strategy and management challenges that arise from the evolving location of the IT infrastructure (e.g. cloud computing, virtualization), the organizational IS function (e.g. outsourcing, crowdsourcing, offshoring, nearshoring), and IS capabilities (e.g. boundary spanning, collaborative innovation, value co-creation) at contemporary firms.

Potential sub-topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
