The impact of learning culture and information technology use on knowledge-sharing: A case of KFUPM


The IT productivity paradox raised the issue of finding appropriate measures for capturing the

business value of information technology. While the topic is much discussed on the general IT level,

there is little research on the specific investments in innovative mobile and ubiquitous technologies. In

this paper, we apply a case study research methodology in order to identify the specific characteristics

of mobile and ubiquitous technology investments and the subsequent requirements on appropriate

measures for the IT business value of mobile-integrated business processes. The results are discussed

with respect to the existing propositions from general IT business value frameworks. The outcome is a

set of requirements on IT business value measures tailored to the specific characteristics of mobileintegrated business processes. We see the result also as a first step in the development of a suitable

measurement framework which could be applied by both researchers and practitioners, especially ex

ante in mobile business process reengineering.
